Golfer Steven Bowditch recently earned himself a Masters debut after his US PGA Tour victory. What was the secret behind his success? Advice from the accomplished sports psychologist Angie Pampling focusing on breathing techniques enabled Bowditch to bring his concentration to a new level.
After Pampling's advice, Bowditch went into his golf practice and pre-shot routine with a new perspective. With a better understanding of how his breathing could affect his mind, body and consequently performance on the golf course, Bowditch was successful on the golf course and also got more out of his game.
This example provides more evidence that understanding and focusing on your breath can help you perform when it counts.
