Howard Rosner has been a competitive golfer for 44 years. For the past 10, he’s played on the Golf Channel AmTour and has won five regular tour tournaments and one Tour of Champions tournament.
He took lessons from Bobby Capobianco (“Bobby C.”), head pro at Silver Dollar Golf Club in Odessa, Florida. Twenty years ago, Rosner went to Bobby C. with an 18 handicap. Bobby evaluated his setup and swing and suggested Rosner simply start over.
Every year, Bobby C. gave Rosner one part of the swing to work on for the year. This went on for 10 years, and each year he taught Rosner a different part of the swing. During his tenth year, Rosner learned the final part of the swing. At this point, he dropped to a single-digit handicap, and now at 71 years old, he’s a 9 handicap player.
Rosner realized 10 years ago he was missing a critical part of the game. He hit the ball well, but felt he’d peaked. Yet he knew there was another element to the game he needed to develop to go lower; his focus, concentration, and routine weren’t consistent. He needed to learn the mental part of the game.
So, the journey began. Rosner researched how the mind works and mental strategy for golf. He came across Dr. GioValiante’s DVDFearless Golf: Conquering the Mental Game. It changed how Rosner would approach mastering the mental part of the game. He understood how important a consistent routine is, and what he needed to do to develop one.
Next, Rosner began to question how to concentrate better. He began using hypnotherapy to improve his game—especially his focus and ability to remain consistent with his routine. Rosner approached his hypnotherapist friends, to explore hypnotherapy to achieve his objectives and to develop hypnotherapy recordings to help others to improve their game.
