`See It & Sink It’ golf workshop set Aug. 13

Aspen Times Staff Report

The Aspen Golf Club will present a special “See It & Sink It” Concentration Workshop on Friday, Aug. 13.The workshop will be led by Dr. Craig Farnsworth, a sports vision specialist regarded as “the hottest instructor in golf.”Farnsworth, whose system helps people to concentrate and “quiet their minds” as they approach each shot, has worked in the sports vision field for 25 years with the Secret Service, the armed forces’ elite troops and U.S. Olympic teams. Over the years, Farnsworth has worked with more than 3,000 athletes from virtually every sport.For the last few years, Farnsworth has focused on golf, and his programs have helped such PGA and LPGA stars as Steve Elkington, Tom Kite, Jesper Parnevik, Brad Faxon, Isao Aoki, Juli Inkster and, most notably, Nick Faldo when he won the 1996 Masters.The workshop will run from 9-11 a.m. at the Aspen Golf Course, and will focus on applying concentration to the game of golf through three keys: choosing a target or task, understanding which sensory system to use and tuning in to the appropriate degree.”We’ll be working on ways to quiet the mind,” said Farnsworth, who added that his system, the first of its kind, allows people to relax and enjoy the game of golf more.”It’s a way for people to have an enjoyable practice for two hours,” he said.The workshop includes an autographed copy of Dr. Farnsworth’s book, “See It & Sink It,” a concentration workbook with home drills and practice tips and two hours of hands-on instruction with Farnsworth.Participants in past workshops have said that the time they spent with Farnsworth was the most meaningful instruction they’ve ever had.”We try to keep everything simply related,” Farnsworth said, “so people can start to understand how simple the game can be.”Enrollment for the concentration workshop is limited.Anyone interested should call the pro shop at the Aspen Golf Course, 925-2145.In other local golf news, the ninth annual Senior Benefit Golf Tournament will take place Thursday, Sept. 9, at the Aspen Golf Course. The tournament will feature a mixed scramble with pairings by handicap for those 55 and older. The entry deadline for the tournament is Sept. 3. The fee is $45 until Aug. 31.
