For most people who play golf, the good shots or rounds are outnumbered by bad ones. Frustrations while golfing are easily compounded and the game can quickly turn into “a good walk spoiled.”
Do you suffer from any of the following?
• Hit the ball well on the range but not on the course
• A bad first hole results in a bad round
• Emotionally react to poor shots
• Easily Distracted by other players
• Negative Self-Talk
• Lack of energy for the last few holes
• Concerned about what people think of your game
These are very common occurrences and all as a result of a mental game that needs work.
Here are the desired effects of a strong mental game:
• Improved focus and concentration
• Unfazed by conditions and playing partners
• Reduced tension and controlled anxiety
• Solid course management and game plan
• Energy to spare at round’s end
• Manage emotions more effectively
• Enjoying the game!
To learn how to exhibit the above characteristics, I am offering a new program called GolfPsych which assess your personality traits and compares them to champion golfers. A full mental routine is then created for you to use on the range and the course so that you can play to your potential. Take advantage of the pros’ best kept secret!
GolfPsych is open to all CGOC members.
