Mental Golf Game
Much has been researched, read and told about the mental golf game. It is a funny thing as well as seeming illusive at times. Ask many amateurs which of these things they would like to do with 100 people standing around the first tee: 1. Hit a perfect drive and proceed to shoot the worst score that you have shot in a long time or 2. Top a drive off of the first tee and proceed to shoot the best score that you have ever shot? I am always amazed at how many people would prefer to hit a great drive off of number one and then proceed to play poorly!
The top sports psychologists in the mental golf game are Bob Rotella, Gio Valiante, Robert Borgatti and Dr. Coop. They have dealt with many of the top professionals and their mental golf game. Among the topics that they have assisted with include: keeping a player's mind in check, teach them how to use their mental capabilities to improve their golf scores, how to talk to themselves during a round, how to develop a pre shot routine that allows the player to perform their very best, how to control first tee nerves and the putting yips. Yes, even the top players in the world deal with the same things that you and I do as well in our mental golf game.
Can the golf mental game help a high handicap golfer? You bet! I have seen it myself. Ben Hogan always said that if he could tell an amateur what club to hit and where to try to hit it that they would be able to average a score of 75. This is how important and how dramatic of a part that the mental golf game can play in determining your golf score.
Many players do not include course management in to the mental part of their game. They stand on a tee and literally have no plan at all on how they are going to play the golf hole. This is silly as they do not do that in many other things in their life whether it is a business meeting or driving somewhere new. You also start with coming up with a plan, first.
A recent example I had with new golfer took place on the tee box. They automatically went to the center of the tee to tee their ball up on a dog leg left. As most, this student usually hits the ball to the right. By moving them to the right side of the tee box and telling them to aim at the left side of the fairway, they now had more fairway to hit. Of course they hit their usual shot but now it was in the fairway and not the rough and they felt great about it! They really hit the shot no better than previous drives on this hole, it was where they were aiming their cannon.
