    need help from the duffer crowd:

    names of golf 'mental game' coaches? best programs for dealing with head cases?

    no swing coaches - and no technical gurus - please.

    Dr. Bob Rotella (sp?) is the most well-known out there today. In fact, I can't name another who works with PGA Tour players.

    Here's all you need to know about golf shrinks.

    Retief Goosen is seeing a guy from South Africa named Jos Vanstiphout. At the 2001 U.S. Open, Goosen misses a 2-footer that could have won in regulation. In the post-round presser, he makes a big deal out of wanting to have an extensive chat with Jos to get his head right for the playoff with Mark Brooks. The next day, Goosen one-putts 11 green and smokes Brooks to win the Open. When asked what he and Jos talked about, Goosen said the advice was more or less along the lines of "Tomorrow's another day."

    Great racket. Jos gets $500 an hour from millionaire golfers to be Scarlett Fucking O'Hara.
