Improve your mental strength and improve your game, in Sport and in Life!
The mental game of golf, although spoken about regularly these days, is something many golfers still don’t really give much consideration to. And that’s surprising when you look at the fact that the average handicap hasn’t come down in over 25 years, even with all of the club, ball and swing improvements that have been made.
I’d like to point out the obvious – the piece that’s really preventing your game from improving – is the 6 inches between your ears.
We know that once you reach a certain level of physical ability in Golf, that the mental part of the game is truly the differentiator in the level of success you achieve, yet golfers still invest more in their equipment than they will in their minds.
With this in consideration, I’ve decided to provide an overview package of some of the key tools, tips and strategies that I use with my one-on-one golfing clients, including some of my PGA Touring players.
By implementing even a few of these concepts, you’re likely to shift your game to a better place, improve your experience and likely see your scores actually come down. Remember, golf is 90% mental and the other half is in your head.
What you focus on you attract!
Hope you enjoy it.
