Nov 25, 2018

 

Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the "Golfer's Mental Edge" CD program and Breaking The Yips Cycle DVD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf using golf psychology strategies developed over the last 20 years of his career.

Are you supposed to focus on technical thoughts about your swing when you go play or should you not have any technical thoughts at all?

In this week's golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, responds to a question from Andrew who wants to know what's the right way to play so he can be more consistent.

Andrew wrote in and said:

"I'm a senior golf pro. I've tried every swing there is with hope of finding a swing I can repeat. Over the years I've gotten worse. My feelings is that I need a repeatable swing to play but I've never managed this. Sometimes on the range I just hit draws and fades with no swing thoughts. I would never miss a shot. It feels the opposite of what I'm supposed to do. Should.i have swing thoughts? Try to get in the perfect position? Well that doesn't work or no technical thoughts. I'll hit it so much better but it's not the right way to go about it. Do you have any help?"

This is an important issue…

Ultimately you want to separate the game into 2 different zones...

Listen to the podcast now to learn what zones Dr. Cohn is referring to and learn his philosophy on how to maximize consistency on the golf course.
