ImageIn my latest Slowinski at-large column, in Bowling This Month's February 2008 issue, How Important Is the Mental Game?  Are You 100% Committed When Competing?, I share with readers two case studies illustrating the importance of the mental game in improving performance.  In the first case study, I analyze the mental game of Todd Book, winner of the 2007 Tour Trials.  In the second, I share the story of an elite youth bowler in Malaysia who transformed his performance at an important international event with an increased dedication to the mental game.  Finally, I share with readers my 7-step pre-shot routine which has been used successfully in maximizing scoring consistency and reducing emotional inconsistencies.  After reading this articles and learning about these cases, I think you will agree that the mental game is a key to success at the highest levels of our sport.
