The mental game beats more people than opponents. I've seen world class shooters get beat when their mental game is off. You can have the most experience, the best equipment, and YOU should win--- but if your mental game is off track an average shooter can beat you. We had local shooters here in this area that could pound bullseyes in their backyard or at an indoor range for fun. But let a tournament whistle blow and "the equipment went down", etc. I know several people that seemed to always have an excuse like that.

Can anyone think of a professional athelete who's mental game may be off right now? A golfer for instance? Someone that should be winning and yet their game isn't quite what it should be?

The mind drives the bow, at the end of the day. It seems to be the place few people practice and properly train and yet that is what wins tournaments and allows you to skip buck fever and take that trophy. Say what you will about NLP, but it works.

The price of the food for that brain seems to have jumped up radically, at least in his case.

I was there. Rick was happily hauling his entire family around with him. I have done the same and the practice does nock a few points off your game.

Well I'm no tounery shooter and right now not even hunting(just a back yard poker)and I have that same neck problem and throw in a back to go with it(wreck from a few years ago). I have never met Rick but have seen his videos and have one of his dvds. I have alot of respect for what he does and hope he gets around this problem for the next shoot.
