I wanted to share a book with you that I think may help your golf game - it has definitely helped mine.
In 1996 I was trying for the 6th time to obtain my PGA card. As some of you may know, the requirements can be difficult to achieve. You must play 36 holes at 7 over the course rating on a tour eligible course. Unfortunately, I was missing the cut in all of the qualifying events and I needed some help.
Looking back on my qualifying rounds what stood out the most to me in the years and attempts prior to 1996 was the difficulty I faced when stringing together a few bad shots. I just could not get out of my own head.
Fortunately, a friend of mine, recommended David F. Wright’s Ph.D., PGA book Mind Under Par. I had nothing to lose and only knowledge to gain, so I purchased it. Looking back on this moment I can say that it was one of the best golf decisions I have ever made.
I ended up meeting Dr. Wright Dr.Wright at Coto de Caza in the late 90’s. With his tutelage we worked on the following elements that took me to that next level.
How to implement and maintain a Routine
How to fine tune your nervous system
Concentration- Keeping your head in play
Confidence-Building mental toughness from the ground up
Visualization- Pictures = performance
Learn how to talk to yourself on the golf course
I hope that either through this post or the book you can learn something new.
Enjoy the process!
