Below is the Summary:

When The FocusBand Was Born and How Many Tour Players Are Using It

Henry mentioned that there are 15 athletes using the FocusBand when he was asked by Steve as to how many tour players are using the FocusBand. Henry also mentioned that they have done work with Autralian Tour, Japanese and European tour. They started working on the FocusBand back then when they are training Japanese Tour players who are doing well physically and technically almost ideal in sleep, nutrition, everything was great. In their practice round they are awesome but when it comes to the tournament, they were missing cuts and not performing to the level that they could play. So Henry and his father Graham obviously knew that there is something wrong with the process and back there is nothing really out there that can measure the brain, nothing really that can make a difference so that is when they started building the FocusBand in 2009. That is when the FocusBand was born. From there they developed algorithms called Mushin which is when you get into that right brain state and that is your ideal brain performance state.

FocusBand Interview with Champions Tour Player Grant Waite

Interview with Grant Waite on how he use The FocusBand for sustained performance

How long have you been using the Focusband and how do you benefit for it?

I got the Focusband 3 weeks ago and I’ve integrated it to my practice a lot. It made my practice a lot more enjoyable because now when I go to the range, I have my main stuff that I do with my golf swing, what I look for and when I put the FocusBand on, it helped me get into a state, a much calmer state, so that I’m almost like curious or aware of what I’m doing and I’m not searching for a outcome so much.

  • I’ve got this awareness of what I’m doing, special orientation goes out , I got a much better feedback on what I’m doing.
  • It’s not so stressful because I am not trying to get an outcome.
  • All I do is I place my awareness to where I want to be and then get feedback from that.
  • It is a much peaceful way of going about learning golf or making changes and more importantly also learning about yourself.
  • Like how am I going to go about this so that I am in the right state of mind.

Even though I have got my mechanics or my positioning or whatever I’m trying to do on my golf swing correct, I still got to make that perform then if I go out into the golf course and I’m thinking about of all these things I do in my golf swing, it’s much harder, it’s much stressful but if I go put Focusband on to create this awareness, create beautiful state where I’m getting ultimate feedback then I can utilize that and the outcome is less important but you are getting a better outcome.

Putting with the FocusBand – Yves Nicollier

Yves Nicollier shows how he uses the Focusband together with FocusBand Performance App  and how it helped him on his yips and putting. He has been using it for about a week and practice with it almost everyday and it’s pretty amazing what it did especially in putting.

According to him he had the yips about maybe like five years now. Of course he tried different grips, different putters and nothing really helped him like the FocusBand did. It is easy for him because he just follows a blueprint and then his min is in a state where it’s really calm. They call it Mushin. It is being in the zone pretty much.

He showed us one of his routines. He also mentioned that FocusBand has been used on the PGA tour by 8 PGA tour player, one of them is Jason Day and obviously he is doing very well.
