U.S. Golf Open Lost Because of Easily Treated Psychological Problem

First, let me say I am not a golfer. More precisely, at the tender age of 51, I did play my first game earlier this year and shot a 95, but that was for the first 9 holes. However, the U.S. Open is one of the top golf tournaments in the world and I found it most extraordinary that Phil Mickelson lost the chance to be only the second person in the last 50 years to win three majors in a row.

If Mickleson had someone taping him before the last hole, he would have won, no doubt in my mind. Why? Saying he was an idiot is a CLASSIC prescription for disaster. There is no way he should have EVER made that comment. If he said it after the hole, I guarantee he was thinking about it during the hole. A few minutes of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping would have won him the championship.

On a sidenote, skilled EFT clinicians can typically reduce most people's golf scores by about 10 strokes. To learn more about what EFT can do for your emotions and golf game easily, quickly and safely, take some time to review my online manual.
