As a golfer myself, I know only too well that “mental golf”, as I call it, can sometimes drive you to the edge of madness. The joy of those days when everything seems easy and you play really well contrasts sharply with the misery and strain of those days when the inconsistency in your golf game drives you potty. Is this just one of those things or is this mental golf, when the mind is untamed?
We are all told that the mind plays a big part in golf yet so little emphasis is placed on the mental side of golf. We get the odd tip to breath deeply, imagine playing your best round and so on, but does this really go far enough into understanding the mental side of golf performance?
Through my own practice and with the help of some great teachers, I have come to understand the role of our mind in golf and I have developed techniques and practices to sharpen the mind for golf, so that you can play your best golf when it matters.
