Attentional Focus Coaching for Golfers.
Golf is a FEEL based game and you can't feel without a target in mind. Go and throw some balls at different targets to appreciate this, then try it without a target. The target not only provides commitment for a golf shot, it ENABLES feel. Playing golf IS psychologically challenging primarily because you look away from your target prior to executing a shot at it. THAT is Golf. Many coaches advise not to focus on target, that has dire consequences.
Without systematic training in Target Orientation golfers then switch their attention to the ball, club, body, swing, outcome or potential hazards. As a result the target is often missed, many then blame their "swing" for the wayward outcomes. Imagine living a golfing life believing your swing/stroke is permanently flawed. The primary skill for playing golf is SINGLE POINTED CONCENTRATION and it is learned uniquely within our applied program.
ALL golfers hate inconsistent performance but so few receive specialised coaching in this essential psychological skill. Institutionalised instruction focusing on ball, grip, alignment, stance, posture, club path etc. has your attention everywhere other than on target. Few discover HOW to TRUST their technical skills, resorting to flow disabling "swing thoughts". Performance in golf occurs when you STOP focusing on your technique and focus on task.
What is the task in golf? Hitting a ball accurately at a target, not hitting a ball with a club. Learning how to SWING GOLF CLUBS and learning how to PLAY GOLF are very different skills, which demand focused practice. Many try the former but few experience the latter whilst mistakenly striving to CONSCIOUSLY control their swing or club. Unfortunately that habitual approach INHIBITS your development when learning, practicing and competing.
Golf coaching practices worldwide do not SYSTEMATICALLY explain and train the golfers Attentional Focus when learning, practicing and playing resulting in many persistent and frustrating SYMPTOMS for the golfer, both physical and psychological. Consequently, many training aids and "mind coaching" programs blossom which change little in practical reality. Why? It is clearly impossible to trust in competition technical skills which are continually doubted in your practice. Target Oriented Golf resolves this significant coaching anomaly.
It is accepted practice in golf to try and improve technical, physical and psychological skills independently. What manifests in reality are frustratingly inconsistent golf performances, irrespective of your playing standard. So why is this? All lifetimes spent trying to develop ANY motor skill by continuously involving your pre-frontal cortex can only FAIL to produce trusted swings and putting strokes. So WHEN do you learn to TRUST your golf technique?
If your golf swing and/or putting stroke is unable to leverage that powerful function of your brain where other trusted motor skills are performed in life, FREE from destructive conscious thought, our independent golf coaching program explains WHY and HOW you can achieve this. Where, when, why, what and how you focus your attention REALLY matters.
