Your attitude on the golf course should be your #1 concern—and will be your #1 ally in achieving your best rounds.
A certain level of physical skill is certainly required to play a solid round of golf, that is unquestionably true, however what sets apart good golfers from great golfers, is the state of their mental game. How they are able to keep focus and stay positive when things are going both well, and not so well separates the two.
We know that golf is an imperfect game … you can’t control the weather conditions, you can’t control the bounces, you can’t control the competition and you certainly can’t control the shot you just made.
However, you can control the shot you’re about to hit and most importantly, you can control your Attitude towards it!
By training your brain to focus on the now – on the shot you’re about to make, you learn not to think about the future (i.e. your score), or previous mistakes. Nothing but the moment you are in matters and it’s the only thing you can control.
We teach a combination of confidence, routine, visualization and focus along with a major emphasis on personal energy, body language, emotion and feeling. Move your game to the next level by improving your mental strength.
“Improve your brain, improve your game!”
Do any of these statements sound familiar?
For the Player:
When I’m on the tee all I think of is what not to do.
When I hit a bad shot I get upset with myself.
I tend to let one bad hole ruin my round.
If I play poorly it can wreck my whole day.
I set goals based on the score I want to post, or the number of birdies I want to make.
I judge my game based on my score.
For the Parent:
Why on earth is he/she going for this in two, what are they thinking?
What’s wrong with him/her?
It’s downhill…couldn’t they see that?
What possibly could have motivated him/her to pull driver on this hole?
I am so not talking to them on the drive home, what an embarrassment that was.
I just need to push them a little harder.
If any of the comments above resonate with you, you’re a perfect candidate for mental coaching.
