Archive for Learn Better Golf with your Golfing Heroes

I’ve been working for a couple of months with a very promising young golfer who’s been working this winter on taking a major step forward with his game. He’s making the transition from amateur golf to building a career as a tournament professional.

Now, he clearly has the golf game and has built up an enviable team of coaches including, in my opinion, the best and most innovative swing coach in the world today. He also has the benefit of working with one of the worlds best Mental Game coaches in the world: a four time world record holder and Olympic Gold medallist. No, that’s not me!

When we started working together …

This is my third blog post in this series and today I’m addressing the subject of Best General Practice for Better Golf.

Dreamy Golf Hypnosis

I feel that it’s best to think of and use your general practice time as an opportunity to rehearse every aspect of your physical and mental game in a controlled environment. On the golf course, success is only really measured by what’s written on your score card, not by the quality of your shot making and your mental game. On the practice tee and green, we have the opportunity to measure every shot objectively and precisely, using feedback from cameras, coaches, shot monitors, alignment tools, etc. …

I’m delighted to announce the completion and launch of the last in this current series of new golf hypnosis programmes, “Learn Better Golf with Your Golfing Heroes”, and I’ve rather naughtily subtitled it Step into the Shoes of Your Golfing Heroes and Steal some Skills. It’s available to purchase now from the Golf Hypnotist Store.

Learn Better Golf with Your Golfing HeroesThis new “Learn Better Golf with Your Golfing Heroes” programme is available in MP3 format for download, with three powerful golf hypnosis sessions, each running for around 20-30 minutes. I developed the individual sessions on similar lines to the “Your Own Virtual Caddy” programme, so you’re getting more than three times the hypnosis from each programme. I have outlined the purpose of each track later in this email.

This is the final golf hypnosis in this series – for now at least. So here’s the complete list for the time being.

How do you get effective competitive golf practice when you play golf on your own? This is a problem facing many of my clients. For a variety of perfectly good reasons, many of my clients play a lot of practice rounds of golf on their own, perhaps grabbing a few holes when they get home from work or when they might otherwise be just raking balls on the driving range.

Now, I’ve been writing an article today for the next edition of my Golf Hypnotist Ezine and it reminded me that many of my clients prefer to play on their own when they’re working on their game. They often find it embarrassing to play with someone else when they’re integrating a new swing idea from their golf pro or working on a golf psychology homework task I’ve given them …

Yesterday was my birthday and one of the best presents I got was the news that Seve Ballesteros, one of my biggest golfing heroes, was talking positively about the future.

Seve in his prime was one of the best exponents of the game of golf and he brought a totally new meaning to the ideas of golf confidence and enjoyment when he played. Not only did he get such an obvious thrill from every one of his cavalier shots, but so did his fans and fellow competitors. His enthusiasm for the game was infectious …

Have you noticed that the winners on the professional golf tours around the world aren’t always technically or statistically the best players. They often don’t even look like the best player over the four rounds the week they win. Now, I know that’s a contradiction, because if they win the event, then they must be the best in that event.

Going back a few weeks to the 2009 Masters, no one would suggest that Kenny Perry, Angel Cabrera and Chad Campbell were the best players in the field, but they were the one’s that got into the playoff, despite their obvious mistakes. Many of the technically and statistically better players looked to be playing really well, but despite some amazing heroics from the likes of Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, none of them came near getting into the playoff …
