126 How does Golf Psychology Work to Lower Your Scores on The Golf Course

In today’s solo episode I talk about golf and what my role as a Sport Psychologist or Golf Performance Psychologist looks like, common challenges that golfers bring to me, difficulties that we experience as Sport Psychologists when working with golfers and a case study to highlight more about my approach to helping golfers shoot lower scores and enjoy the game more.  

Enjoy tuning in!

Key Learning Points:

  • Typical challenges that golfers bring to me are; hitting the ball well on the range however they’re not able to transfer this on to the golf course and score well, not being able to stay present and convert after good starts, dealing with feeling anxious and slow starts and temper tantrums.   
  • Generally 6 hours+ support with a golfer can make a huge difference to them.
  • Many golfers lack commitment when working with a Golf Psychologist.
  • Learning from mistakes is a common difficulty for golfers who simply think that the answer is to try and improve their technique.
  • I always ask myself the question, is this tool going to help the golfer attain their goals and shoot lower scores?
  • It is possible to break through a glass ceiling and turn 69s into 65s.
