Justin Rose – Gratitude, Mindset and Attitude Always Win

by Dr. Stephen Walker

Justin Rose won the FedEx Cup in grand fashion yesterday – besting the world’s best, including a resurgence by Tiger Woods that had the golfing world cheering louder than ever before.  Everyone was totally blessed by both the Player’s Championship Win by Tiger Woods, and, Justin Rose’ fabulous season ending FedEx Cup win.

 

 

Before Sunday’s final round at the Tour Championship, Justin Rose already had won two PGA Tour events this season, earned 10 top-10 finishes and collected more than $7.7 million in prize money. His Sunday 73 at East Lake Golf club did not earn him a third win for the year, but it was good enough to give the Englishman his first FedEx Cup title and the $10 million prize that comes with it.

“Sometimes the FedEx Cup rewards guys who win at the very end, but for me, I was trying to do my best to win this golf tournament and scoop the double jackpot. But far and away, being next to this trophy is something I’m very, very proud of.”

Tiger Woods seized the headlines and ended five years of frustration Sunday by winning the Tour Championship by two strokes over Billy Horschel.  Yesterday was a great day for Golf, and a fabulous day for Tiger Woods.  Rose capped what is arguably the best year ever for a PGA Tour player.  Watch out for next week’s Ryder Cup – it will be awesome!!!!!

    A pro golfer has a caddy. He can discuss strategy with the caddy! I think there should be a clear delineation between discussing “mental toughness” and peak performance in top pro athletes and everyone else who wants to do well in sports.
    I invented a way to improve the mental side of tennis. A way to keep score in an intuitive way on the throat of the racket. It is, of course, for the 99.5% of players who do not get a game and tie-break scoreboard and a judge with a microphone announcing the score.
    Comparing how relaxed mentally the top athletes can be, how they can free their mind of distracting elements like keeping the score in working memory, with all of us who play sports is just silly.

      Hi Lynne,
      Can you write a brief article on your scoring system? I’d like to look at it. I’ll preview it personally and let you know if I don’t think it is ready for primetime, but I like the idea.
      Thanks,
      Steve

          Hi Lynne,
          Thanks for sending, I have not read it yet. I’ll be back after I’ve had a chance to review it. I’m wrapping up the term, finals, closing out practicums etc. So it might be a couple of weeks.
          Best,
          Steve
