BOURNE GOLF CENTRE
Why is it important to include mind coaching when improving your golf through a coaching programme.
Technique alone is not enough to make you a consistently good golfer. Mental toughness is also needed to carry you through the games where nerves are tested or single poor shot throws you off kilter.
Those are the moments when the golfer who has acquired the habit of mental toughness has a huge advantage over their playing partners and competitors,. Thankfully, it’s a habit that Darren Game can help you develop through mind coaching.
“The first sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result!”
– Albert Einstein
Darren has worked with Peak Performance coach Jamie Edwards, Visual Coach Sherylle Calder and Sports Psychologist Dr Brian Hemmings to understand the contribution that the mind can make in moving towards or away from success as a golfer.
‘Everything we do is a routine or process,’ says Darren. ‘Swinging the club is only a small part of the process of moving the golf ball in a stroke. All parts of the process, from our expectation of what we want to happen, to the actual outcome of the stroke. From how we speak to ourselves in our own heads and what we do as a result, all these have a major impact on how we perform, how we swing and ultimately where the ball goes.’
How can mind coaching help?
- Deal with nerves.
- Stay focussed.
- Deal with bad shots.
- Develop confidence and belief in yourself.
- Develop a consistent and effective pre-shot routine.
- Play your best game more of the time.
- Enjoy your golf.
- Understand the complexity of the game to achieve more.
- Use your practice time more efficiently.
In addition to his work with Jamie Edwards, his PGA certification in Psychology, Darren also uses Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) skills and draws on his work with Dr Sherylle Calder to understand how visual training plays an important part in peak performance.
If you want to improve your all round game and achieve an advantage over other players, mind coaching will help you get the results you’re looking for.
