Today's golf psychology podcast answers a question about fear of success in golf and how that differs from fear of failure. Fear of failure is very common in sports psychology and mental training. Fear of success is very rare in sports psychology. It does exist, but only with the most successful athletes who don't want the burden of higher expectations.
Dr. Patrick Cohn, author of The Mental Game of Golf and The Mental Art of Putting, helps you play within yourself and not swing out of your shoes to keep up with the big hitters in your group.
