What role do ESP play in your Golf career?

I began working with ESP in October 2014 after I injured my back. I had been seeing other physio’s, and chiropractors but to be honest nothing helped. In one session they seriously reduced my symptoms, so much that I was able to fly the following day to South Africa for my next match. After they fixed my back problem I’ve been there ever since, working on my strength, and conditioning as well as regular sports massage, and sports mind skills training.
