An EFT for Better Golf story
What sort of success are other people having with EFT? Firstly let’s look at a quote from EFT Inventor, Gary Craig’s – one of many examples on his website. Gary talks about a golfer called Ron Johnson who improved his golf using EFT from scoring around 95-100 to having many rounds in the 70’s. Here’s what Ron told Gary.
“My statements began something like…”even though putting is extremely frustrating, I still completely accept myself.” I would practice on the putting green with 10-twenty foot putts, 10-ten foot putts and 10-five foot putts. Each time, I would go through the nine-step process with the same statement…”Even though these putts are nerve-racking, I still completely accept myself.” I found that I began to feel much more confident over the putts and some actually went in the cup. Three-putts to get the ball in the hole began to disappear and, within three months, my average scores went from 95-100 down to 85-90. I’ve had many rounds in the 70’s during the past year and I am now setting a goal of shooting below 70. The process works equally well with each shot in the game, not just the putter. In fact, I now use the process before beginning the round with the following statements: “Even though I am filled with apprehension on this round, I completely and totally accept myself.”
University Research of EFT for the Yips
There’s a sports psychologist in Tenerife called Lynn Francis who uses EFT to help golfers overcome the yips. I’m not sure whether the yips are worse for a golfer than the shanks I kept talking about yesterday. They both strike fear into the hearts of golfers unnecessarily, as they are “all in the mind” of the golfer and therefore beatable with the likes of golf hypnosis, NLP and EFT.
What’s even more interesting about Lynn is that here approach to “curing” the yips has been researched by Mike Rotheram at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University here in the UK. The final paragraph of his report says it all.
“It is clear that Lynn’s treatment certainly has merit, and her work is based on her skills as a practitioner in finding underlying emotional causes. The benefits of this treatment are not only relevant to amateur golfers. They are also relevant to tour players who experience the ‘yips’ and people in other sports such as darts and cricket. It is possible this treatment may be effective for dentists, artists, and musicians who experience symptoms similar to the ‘yips’. Mike Rotheram is certainly excited as he said, ‘Lynn has stumbled on something here that is potentially ground breaking. This is undoubtedly the most effective treatment I have seen so far. It is now up to the scientific community to put these findings into appropriate research settings. I wish Lynn all the best and I hope we can team up again in the future’.”

Final Conclusions – EFT is a good supplement to Hypnosis for Golf
So there you have it. EFT is a very useful supplement to the use of hypnosis and NLP in my golf psychology practice and helps people to make profound golf improvement.
