A hilarious and poignant presentation about much more than just golf...it’s really about examining the        human condition

David Williams is one of America’s foremost PGA teachers and entertainers. His unique combination of talents and experiences allow him to communicate effectively with many diverse groups.  A thoroughly enjoyable speaker with over 40 years of experience, David utilizes the game of golf as a vehicle to bring broader life-truths to each and every audience member; golf enthusiast and non-golfer alike.

Mr. Williams’ entertaining and educational show will keep you laughing at some of the ill-advised strategies that have passed for effective golf instruction when viewed from a rational and common sense perspective.  Those who play golf will benefit greatly, as they will be able to put aside many commonly held beliefs that have limited their capacity for performance and enjoyment of the game. In their place will be offered a remarkably simple, logical, and anatomically possible approach that players of all abilities have used with great success for over 100 years.

Non-golfers will be equally entertained, as the presentation weaves within it a theme of what it is to be human, transformative vs. informative learning, the extraordinary power of intention and awareness, and how to use golf or any experience to learn to think and act beyond existing points of view and self-imposed limits. The message of Mr. Williams is presented with a background of humor and a warm and genuine commitment to bringing about positive and permanent shifts in the quality of people's lives.

David has been coached, trained, and educated by some of the greatest minds of both the 20th and 21st centuries in the field of golf instruction, as well as several remarkable individuals in the domains of psychology, philosophy, and human transformation. He has studied the teachings of the incomparable Jiddu Krishnamurti of India for the past 30 years. 

Because of the wisdom, insight, and generosity of these extraordinary people and more than 50 years of playing the game himself, his approach to the golf swing, the game of golf, and life are perhaps some of the more interesting and provocative that you will encounter. 

Mr. Williams has written several articles for golf publications, been heard on radio talk shows throughout the country, and is the author of the golf instructionalDavid speaking at a golf show video, “Golf - If you don’t know…you can’t do it!”, and “The Master Golf Swing Program”, as seen in Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Golf Illustrated, and other golf publications.

He has been the featured speaker at more than 100 golf shows in more than 30 major U.S. cities, as well as corporate events, chamber of commerce luncheons, Rotary and Kiwanis clubs, small business groups, women’s organizations, public and private exhibitions, a Caribbean cruise for Norwegian Cruise Lines, and countless other venues.

Some of the cities in which he has performed include:

Phoenix     Tucson     Scottsdale     Mesa     Denver     San Diego     Orlando     Boston     Philadelphia     Los Angeles     Seattle     Miami     Pittsburg     San Jose      Cincinnati     Sacramento     Dayton     Buffalo     Milwaukee     Indianapolis     Cleveland     Ft. Myers     Atlanta     Columbus     Baltimore     Detroit     Toledo     Albuquerque     Palm Springs     Toronto     The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

Excerpts from David Williams’ performances

 “Perfection is attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.”  Antoine de Saint-Exupery - French writer and poet in the early 1900's

“There is no such thing as failure in golf – or life – there are only different outcomes.”

“We are the only living organisms on this planet that perform less than we are capable of.”

"Human beings have a peculiar habit of getting ready to do something, and by definition when we are getting ready we are never ready.  We are also the only organisms that do this."

"Contrary to our experience, we are never afraid of the unknown.....what the mind fears is an ending of the known."  J. Krishnamurti

"Whether it be psychological, philosophical, or physical, most of our significant insights, breakthroughs, and learning that impact our lives come from the realm of what we don't know that we don't know, or what we are not aware that we are not aware of."

"Any kind of performance anxiety is always rooted in the angst around what are they going to think?"

"It is a phenomenon of human beings that we do not have a point of view.....we are that point of view!"

"When swinging freely and letting go is more satisfying to you than the shots you produce, you will be amazed at the shots you produce."  Fred Shoemaker
