"I missed 5 straight cuts on the eGolf Tour and decided to contact Seth. After just 2 sessions I shot 63, 65, 71 (14-under) at the next Tour event. Now I know I have the talent and ability. I just needed an expert mental coach to maximize the shotmaking skills I have."

“Before I worked with Seth I doubted in my shotmaking abilities, put pressure on myself to get results, and it was hard to “move on” after mistakes. But once I got mentally conditioned I started to go for my shots, trust in my game, and manage myself much better on the course. Now I am ranked in the Top 30 in the state, I consistently shoot in the low 70’s, and will be playing college golf for UNC-Greensboro!”

“I had been struggling for awhile but didn’t know how to fix it. I would put pressure on myself and then get frustrated that I wasn’t playing well. I knew I had the ability but I wasn’t getting results on the course and my confidence started to drop. But that all changed once I started working with a mental coach. Seth did an assessment and identified all the things that were holding me back and then put together a plan to allow me to execute with confidence and trust so that I wasn’t over-thinking or putting pressure on myself to play well. In a short period of time my mental game improved and scores went down!”

“Before working with Seth I doubted in my abilities, I had trouble “moving on” after a poor shot, and would let one or two bad shots dictate the rest of my round. After finishing my five sessions with Seth, I am now able to focus on the task at hand and not worry so much about the outcome. Seth talked a lot about the mental scorecard and “driving it up.” As I continue to drive up my mental scorecard, my scores have gone down. After just a few sessions with Seth I shot a 3-under for 9 holes and a 5-under for 9 holes. My consistency has improved drastically and I have lowered my overall scoring average.”
