  1. Very impressed by a new device I was recently bought, called the FX-Sport VC Golf. They are described as the first “psychological coaching device for golf”. Basically headphones with 8gb of memory, capable of playing music, but hold hours of practice drills, podcasts, workouts etc, from prominent coaches. It’s a little addictive actually, as the content is very good and I have drastically improved not only my practice methods, but also better understand how to focus. I especially found my pre-shot routine has improved.
