Discover how to go from a casual golfer to a tournament competitor and unleash your potential
(even if you're brand new to competitive golf)

Learn tournament golf secrets so you can start playing
(and thriving) in competitive amateur events...

If you love golf but want to learn how to go from casual rounds with your buddies to competing tournament golf then you're in the right place. 

WARNING: Tournament golf might change your game - in the best way possible (more on that later). 

Are you an avid golfer who wants to get into competitive events?

Maybe it’s a skins game, club championship, money game, or even formal events like state opens or USGA qualifiers? 

If so, you’re in the right place.

Here’s the thing… there is a distinct difference between playing golf casually and competing in a tournament setting. 

A round with your friends but it’s natural to want more and test your game with better players in a pressure packed situation. 

It's an entirely new playing field that demands a shift in mindset, strategy, and execution.  

It's no secret that playing golf under tournament conditions can be both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. 

Heck, I know more than anyone.

In my college qualifier I topped my first tee shot in the pond (while the entire team and coach watched). 

Don’t worry - I made it through a few qualifiers to play on the college team. 

Needless to say, the pressure to perform at your best, coupled with the presence of competitors who are just as determined to succeed, can shake even the most seasoned golfers. 

But here's the truth: success in tournament golf lies not only in your swing mechanics but also in your ability to manage your mind and emotions under pressure.

As Bobby Jones said, “Competitive golf is played mainly on a five and a half inch course… the space between your ears.” 

Before getting into the mindset of a tournament golfer it’s important to understand how to find tournaments.

 All of this and more is covered inside the Tournament Golf Formula.

The Tournament Golf Formula is a 4-module golf program to help you find and compete in competitive golf events. This online program will help you find events, learn how to practice for tournaments, the mindset for a strong mental game, and how to keep getting better every year. 

Not to mention avoid rookie mistakes so you can speed up the learning curve and play better when it matters most. 

Here’s how…

Module 1: Amateur Golf Tournaments 101

Learn how to find tournaments as an amateur golfer


Tournament golf takes the sport to an entirely different level and it's easy to feel intimidated with the process. I'm sure you've asked yourself, "How do I find golf tournaments? When should I start competing? What are different types of events?"

I'll answer all those questions and more so you're ready to start playing competitively with confidence. 

Inside module 1 you will learn: 

  • How to find local golf tournaments and identify different types of events.
  • Why tournament golf is unlike a normal round of golf (and how to prepare).
  • How tournament golf can speed up success and help you hit your golf goals. 
  • The right equipment you need to show up prepared, confident, and ready to go.
  • When you should start playing in competitive events (hint: it's sooner than you think).

Module 2: Building a Tournament Golf Game Plan 

Discover how to prepare for tournaments like a pro

Great golf happens before your name is called on the first tee box. In this module I'll make sure your practice routines, game plan, and mindset are setting you up for success. 

This will help you attack the golf course from the first hole and not wait until the back 9 to get comfortable in pressure packed situations.

Module 3: Mastering Tournament Golf - Thriving in Competition

Learn how to get in the zone and go low in competition

 Once the prep work is done, it's time to thrive in competition. But most golfers falter under pressure and shoot scores that are way outside the norm.

A lot of this stems from the wrong mindset, lack of routines, and playing with new golfers in tournament conditions. But I'll help you avoid these common amateur golf mistakes so you can crush the competition. 

Inside module 3 you will learn:

  • A proven warm-up routine to "win" the round. 
  • A simple way to stay present and get in the zone.

What type of golfer is this for? 

This tournament golf program is NOT for all golfers. If you fit these criteria, then you’re likely a great future member: 

  • Takes action
  • Has a passion for golf 
  • Wants to play better under pressure. 
  • Isn’t afraid of trying out new strategies 
  • Wants to play better golf and have more fun
  • Willing to learn new skills and test out new ideas

Then I’m confident you can use this program to start shooting lower scores FAST. 

What type of golfer shouldn’t enroll? 

If you don’t want to learn new principles and keep doing the same old thing on the golf course this isn't for you. 

  • Fears change
  • Thinks mental game is BS
  • Isn't ready for tournament golf
  • Doesn’t want to learn new ideas
  • Refuses to believe proven data about golf

If any of the above sound like you then you aren’t a good fit for The Tournament Golf Formula. 


At this point, you have a choice. 

You can keep thinking and dreaming about competing in events without ever getting started. Playing casual rounds of golf with your friends but always wondering "What if" you got started in tournament golf. 

This is the “hard” path…where you'll likely end with regret for never giving your game a chance. Or, never learning the mental game strategies that can help you play your best in competitive situations. 


You can choose to invest in yourself with The Tournament Golf Formula - which is a blueprint to all things tournament golf so you can enjoy the challenge of competition. 

You can speed up the learning curve of golf from a +2 handicap golfer who’s competed in 200+ days of tournament golf including Q-School, USGA qualifiers, state events. Not to mention a  certified mental golf coach. This is the exact system I've used to become a top-rated amateur golfer in Arizona. 

But whatever you choose, choose quickly because your golf game depends on it (and prices are going to increase SOON).
