Fear in Golf

I hope your golf is going well and that you are free on the golf course. This time I am going to discuss something that I encounter with most of the golfers that I coach. I also experience it in my game too from time to time.

Fear in Golf.

In golf and in life we experience fear. Fear can make us so tense that we find it almost impossible to perform well.

So how do you banish fear?

Have you tried the Positive Thinking Route? I have and I can tell you that it doesn’t work because all the time that you are being positive there is still a part of you that is scared. My advice, and you don’t have to take it, is this.

Accept your fear.

Instead of trying to get rid of it, invite it in.

Observe your fear without wishing it was gone and see what happens.

Allow yourself the space to understand what lies behind the fear.

Instead of treating it like your enemy treat is as your friend.

You may well get very different results. As I said, don’t listen to me, find out for yourself.

If you need help to put it into practice then get in touch.

“Fear does not have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it.”¬† Les Brown
