Mind Coach Karl Morris in Canada

Since I’ve been bugging the organizers for weeks to set up an interview without luck, I guess the best I can do is let you know that Karl Morris, a sports psychologist who works with Lee Westwood, among others, is coming to Canada next week for appearances at Lionhead and Deer Creek:

Karl Morris will be giving two mental game improvement seminars – one at Lionhead Golf and Country Club in Brampton on May 18 and a second at Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility in Ajax on May 19 that are open to everyone interested in improving their game. His teachings are for everyone of all skill levels! His common sense approach to efficient/effective practice and playing will change the way you THINK and FEEL about your game!

From the competitive world of golf, he has worked with players including; Darren Clarke, David Howell, Lee Westwood, Paul McGinley, Graeme McDowell, Richard Finch, Phil Archer Alison Nicholas and Trish Johnson. As a consultant to the PGA of Great Britain and Europe he has presented seminars all over the world to the Australian PGA, South African PGA, German PGA, Swedish PGA, Dutch PGA, Belgian PGA and the Hong Kong Golf Association.

Karl and I have worked together and I continue to use his principles and techniques on a daily basis to help my game. Last year was a great year with two wins, says Graeme McDowell.

In Canada, Morris has been working with veteran Canadian PGA member Danny King, Director of Instruction at Magna Golf Club for over six years. Karl has been so effective in changing the way I approach my game that Jeff Boismier, fellow PGA member and good friend, thought we should bring him to Canada so he can share his knowledge with others. Boismier who worked at Magna with King in 2009 says He is a student of the mind and Karl will change the way people think and feel about their game. He has a common sense approach, along with some simple yet efficient/effective means of playing and practicing

Cost is $100 and details can be found here.


Just a reminder of the About Golf series in Guelph on Sunday. Lorne Rubenstein, Graham Cooke, Ian Andrew and Doug Carrick in the same room at the same time? Might be a discussion series about golf or a battle royale. Oh, and I’m speaking as well, apparently on the future of golf courses.

  • The list of speakers/panellists that I have also includes Tom McBroom in the mix and don’t forget Ted Baker and David Moote . . . who have also designed some golf courses. Looking forward to what everyone has to say.

  • This was an old article, but as someone who put this on and was there for both seminars. If you weren’t there you missed out. Great information (that is me as a golfer saying so, and not as organizer).

    And yawn, yawn, boring – you obviously were there. His 5 tips he gave away to everyone are some to the same tips he is teaching all his guys that seem to be winning week in and week out.
