Jim Toal: Glen has become a trusted mentor and friend since I attended a Winning the Battle Within workshop nearly 20 years ago. His insight and practical application of target awareness through his inner game drills have been key to me personally and to those I coach. I make sure every player receives a copy of Glen’s powerful book. The adoption of a teaching philosophy that centers around self discovery and practicing for performance is the cornerstone upon which I coach and allows for players of all levels to experience more confidence and trust in their games. Thanks Glen!

Glen and I had a very nice and honest conversation this past week and we addressed a few of my challenges. So this weekend I jumped into a golf game that normally I would be extremely uncomfortable, but there a breakthrough. I competed on every shot, I played without this nasty knot in my stomach and regardless of the score; I really enjoyed my golf game. Jeff..4.5 index

“I am profoundly grateful to Glen. Golf has again become an enjoyable adventure, a medium for sharpening awareness and perception, an array of challenges that evolve us as players and people, a test of skill and an opportunity for honor, and providing special times shared with others. Winning the Battle Within is a path to a joy that ranges from the sensational to the spiritual. It feels a lot like love.”

Golf Pro: I loved the inner-game drills. I’ll use them for all of my students.

Professional Golfer: Now I know how to use my pre-shot routine to stop thinking and play like an athlete.
