He brings a fresh perspective to the game of golf in Golfer’s Palette.” -Tim Eberlein, MBA, PGA Master Professional, Campus Director, The Golf Academy of America-Phoenix, “In my 20 plus years as a PGA instructor, Dr. DeVore was one of the most interesting and knowledgeable students that ever passed through the doors of The Golf Academy of America. It was always special to pick his brain regarding various journeys in life. When he had a story to tell, I listened until the story was complete because I knew he had lived the story. With his experience traveling around the world, working with corporate America, and his love of the game of golf, I know that Golfer’s Palette is based purely on his experience and not on a fairytale.” -Gary Balliet, PGA Quarter Century PGA Member, Certified Club Builder & Fitter, Instructor, The Golf Academy of America, “By design as humans, our thoughts dictate our actions-good or bad-voluntarily or involuntarily. Dr. DeVore has expertly outlined how the correct cohesive integration of our mind and body can deliver not only peak performance but total enjoyment. Golfer’s Palette will show you how to control your thinking and allow yourself to have the most fun playing this wonderful game.” -John Gunby, PGA, 2013 Southwest Section Golf Professional of the Year
