    Practice to Learn, Play to Win – Dr Mark Guadagnoli #137

    One area on the Brain Booster we are constantly looking to share world class information is that of training for our game.
    How can we train in a way to gives us a return on our investment of time and money?
    How can we better train so we are able to TRANSFER those skills into the real world?
    Training is of little to no actual value unless it transfers to the real world environment.
    So much time can be wasted with little to no return.

    Protecting your greatest asset – Your Healthy Brain with Dr Dale Bredesen #136

    Protecting your greatest asset – Your Healthy Brain with Dr Dale Bredesen #136

    It is a simple fact, without a healthy brain we are going to really struggle to live any form of meaningful life.
    Yet how much do we REALLY pay attention to the health of our most prized asset? How much do we really look after our brain?
    We should!
    Dementia is now the third biggest killer in the USA.
    The effects are devastating. All meaningful life evaporates.
    I know from first - hand experience with my mother just how bad it can be.
    I would not wish it on anyone.
    Up to now we have been led to believe there is ‘nothing we can do about it’. That the demise when you develop Alzheimer’s is inevitable.
    Today’s guest on the Brain Booster is challenging all of our previous assumptions of what role WE can play in the ongoing health of our brain.
    Dr Dale Bredesen has just written a wonderful new book called ‘The End of Alzheimer’s Program’.
    I cannot recommend this book too highly.
    It is basically a manual to live a healthy and productive life by looking after your brain.
    By embracing some of the ideas in the book we are also giving ourselves the BEST possible chance for optimum performance in your game or your business.
    A healthy brain is an essential component of uncovering your true potential.
    Dr Bredesen is internationally recognised as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
    He graduated from Caltech then earned his MD from Duke University.
    In today’s show we dive deep into some of the key ideas you can implement IMMEDIATELY to improve the health of your brain.
    We talk about the importance of sleep and how a lack of it can be harming your brain far more than you think.
    How poor oral hygiene can be the source of so much brain deterioration.
    The key elements of a good diet
    The effects of exercise on your brain.
    If you follow the ideas in today’s show you will be able to look at the world through a totally different lens.

    The Gratitude Experiment – Waleuska Lazo #135

    The Gratitude Experiment – Waleuska Lazo #135

    Five minutes to Gratitude.
    We have talked in the past on the Brain Booster about GRATITUDE.
    In the book I co wrote with Gary Nicol, ‘The Lost Art of Playing Golf’ we began the first chapter with a piece about the effects of gratitude.
    It would seem to be really clear the evidence suggests Gratitude is good for both you and your game.
    The response to the book has been amazing so I wanted to look at gratitude a bit more closely.
    So today we have coach Waleuska Lazo.
    Waleuska Lazo is the creator and founder of FMTG. Five Minutes to Gratitude.
    To the outside world, Waleuska had it all: A successful career, a loving family, and her health. For Waleuska her life was miserable. Having lost her marriage, sense of purpose, and on the verge of losing the relationships with her daughters, Waleuska knew there had to be a better way.
    Waleuska created a system that took her from her lowest of lows to live the life of her dreams. Easier said than done. Waleuska failed her way forward to find out what works, and as important, what doesn’t work.
    The end results?
    Five minutes to Gratitude
    When word spread of Waleuska’s “miraculous” results, she found herself sharing her FMTG experience with close friends.
    Today, FMTG is a thriving community of people from around the world who have transformed their lives for the better.
     
    It was a really interesting talk with Waleuska and her insights can only be of benefit to your golf but more importantly to your life. To be grateful is to create a condition that ALLOWS success to emerge.

    Rick Sessinghaus – Coaching Collin Morikawa from a junior to PGA Tour success #133

    Rick Sessinghaus – Coaching Collin Morikawa from a junior to PGA Tour success #133

    Today we are joined on the Brain Booster by PGA Tour coach Rick Sessinghaus. We get the chance to discuss the development of one of his players Collin Morikawa from being a junior player to a breath taking debut on the PGA Tour. We talk about how Rick realised early on in his coaching career that the mental part of the game was so vital for a coach to embrace.
    If you are not helping your players on this aspect of the game then you are only partially doing your job.
    As a former professional player himself Rick finds more satisfaction helping others achieve their dreams than he did in his own competitive career. Long intrigued by the fact that physical skills were rarely the determining factor in athletic success.
    He took ACTION
    He didn’t just think about improving his coaching.
    He made it happen.
     
    He studied the mental and emotional skills that make or break a performance. Rick has a Doctorate Degree in Applied Sports Psychology; he is also a Certified Mind Factor Coach.
    Rick is constantly researching the latest scientific findings pertinent to achievement in golf, business, and life.
     
    We discuss some key elements to help YOUR game:
     
    On course training
     
    New games to play
     
    How to use statistics more efficiently
     
    How to give a player more ownership of their game
     
    A great session

    The Need to Look at Recovery – Michael Davis and Tim Brownstone – Kymira Golf #132

    The Need to Look at Recovery – Michael Davis and Tim Brownstone – Kymira Golf #132

    On today’s Brain Booster we get to look at one of the most overlooked areas in sport RECOVERY.
    We all want to make the most of our training both in the gym and on the course but what about our body afterwards?
    What do we do?
    What can we do to make our recovery more effective?
    Are we getting enough sleep?
    Are we maximising the opportunity to recover?
    What else could we be doing?
     
    Effective recovery has been perhaps one of the most overlooked areas in golf.
     
    Today we have an in depth discussion with Tim Brownstone and Michael Davis from KYMIRA golf. Mike is a former tennis player who went to the IMG academy and has always had a passion for excellence in sport.
    Tim is the creator of some incredible technology which he will go on to explain in detail.
     
    He is the inventor of Kymira Golf - Clothing that actually helps your body to recover with the aid of infra – red technology.
    It sounds almost too good to be true.
    A magic carpet!
     
    That is what I thought until I looked into their research and development. What they have developed is nothing short of incredible.
    It is wonderful to hear of a young company being so innovative and creative.
     
    How would it be if you could actually wear clothing that helped your recovery?
    Clothing that speeds up injury rehabilitation?
    Does the work for you simply by having it on your body.
     
    Have a listen to an incredible story.

Golf listener ,

Fantastic insights

Why do we keep playing this game? Some days are better than others but all create joy (every shot pleases someone) and great memories. Listening to this podcasts reinforces how lucky we are to both play the game and build friendships for life. Andrew Murray and Karl Morris fireside reflections could become a spin off series we would all enjoy!

Hair Comb

Always great to hear from Nick, sounds like someone of flicking a hair comb throughout it though.

Brilliant Brain Booster

The Karl Morris Brain Booster podcast is required listening for anyone keen to work on skill acquisition and improve their golf.
Karl and his guests are leading the way on how and where to focus your attention to boost performance. And in golf it’s not to go down the traditional swing positions path as a means to progress. This is the one podcast I look out for each week and it never disappoints. Thank you, Karl.
