In the early 1970’s, Dr. Joe encountered the mindful awareness practices of Buddhism. While modern psychology pointed out self-defeating patterns of behavior, mindful awareness provided the most profound methods to transform them. As he completed his Ph.D., he began bringing his insights to golf, co-teaching clinics with a golf pro who was also interested in mindfulness and psychology. He also applied his knowledge and skills to stress management.
Since then Dr. Joe has become a highly regarded and sought-after corporate speaker and instructor/trainer of the mental game, teaching the path to success in business, while coaching in golf and other sports. He has worked with hundreds of professional and amateur golfers and other athletes: from beginners to world champions, from age 7 to 87. He has been a speaker for corporate, celebrity and charity events hosted by Merrill Lynch, Salomon Brothers, Legg Mason, Dreyfus, AIG, Bank of America, Fidelity, CB Richard Ellis, World Presidents Organization, PGA of America, the Tiger Woods Foundation, the First Tee Foundation and many others.
ZEN GOLF was published in 2002, quickly rising to the top of the list as the bestselling instructional golf book in America. Now in its tenth printing, there are over 175,000 copies in print world-wide, including foreign editions in seven different languages.
Dr. Joe has been featured on CNN, NBC’s Today in New York, HBO Sports, ESPN, and many appearances on The Golf Channel. The ZEN GOLF book is featured in a widely circulated MasterCard “Priceless” ad, and had its own cameo appearances being read by Ray Romano on “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Dr. Joe coaches Ray, Kevin James, Malcolm McDowell, Michael O’Keefe (Danny Noonan of Caddyshack) and many other celebrity golfers.
