Being a dean at two outstanding universities was another positive, Dunn said. “He’s a really great connection and find for us,” Dunn said, agreeing with Montgomery that WMU is student-centric and that his background will help the college’s financial stability. “He’s a good listener and we need good listeners,” Dunn said, and he believes Montgomery will take action after gathering information about issues. The president-electhas a lot of energy, WMUs current president said, and his personality is a good fit for the university. “You want whoever follows you to be even better academically, because that’s what you want for the institution,”Dunn said. “Don’t take Western Michigan University lightly,” he said. “This is a great place and we can compete with anyone anywhere anytime.” Western Michigan community ‘excited’ for future with new president WMU Trustee Ron Kitchens called Montgomery an authentic leader. “This isn’t somebody with a resume and a firm handshake,” he said. “This is a man who his entire career has gotten up and led. He’s a man whose father pulled himself from being a mechanic to being one of the most renowned historians in the country and that work ethic permeates Dr. Montgomery.” Kitchens said he believes Montgomery will build on the tradition of presidents before him to be student-centered. “The Internet will be flooded with selfies of he and students together,” Kitchens said. Montgomery had a large pool of employees as the deputy director of the labor department and had to think in a global perspective, said Kitchens, who interacted with Montgomery when he was the Auto Czar. “I saw a leader who came to our state and listened,” Kitchens said, before he broughtresources to help others achieve success. “He transitioned communities, he helped transition companies, but he listened.” Trustee William Johnston chaired the 22-member search committee that reviewed a pool of 78 applicants and interviewed nine, before recommending three who the board of trustees to interviewed. He said the candidates who rose to the top had a complete set of experiences in academia, and also leadership roles. Montgomery is a “transformational leader” who can help the school advance beyond where it is now, Johnston said. “In his experience in the federal government, he was tasked with doing really important thingsin the Department of Labor and also under Obama during the severe recession, to help the auto industry,” he said. courseThe angst Johnston said he felt about whether or not the search would attractthe right people was relieved once he met the nine people the committee interviewed. The confidential search, a different process than past WMU president searches when finalists were revealed and interviewed publicly, was part of the reason for its sucess, he said.

This is much easier to see when looking at the hole from the green back to the tee box. When a difficult hole messes with your confidence, changing your perspective of the hole, especially during your practice round, is a great way to remove some trepidation. Once you see the hole from a different angle, some of the unwarranted fear will go away. Manzella: Take a deep breath and a couple of soft practice swings. Over the ball, after you know you’ve set up correctly at the target, focus on your little area where you stand and address the ball-it’s same space on every practice shot you ever hit. Now, pull the trigger and DON’T RUSH any part of the swing. Try to duplicate the FEEL of the best shots you hit just like THIS one! Sprecher: For tough shots I suggest you do the following: -Visualize the shot you want to hit, make it your most reliable shot. You can even visualize a shot similar to a shot you hit on a previous hole, or on the range. Get a good mental picture.
