Attentional Focus Coaching for Coaches & Golfers
Erroneous thoughts in the SECONDS before and during shot execution undermine our ability to perform consistently. This workshop uniquely reveals how to train your attention with the same discipline on the range as you train technique. A detailed, applied golf coaching program has been developed and published; its application requires DELIBERATE practice.Existing swing coaching practices worldwide do not systematically EXPLAIN and TRAIN the golfers Attentional Focus whilst learning, practicing and playing. What and where the golfer's attention is focused matters significantly at all times. This workshop closes that education gap, binding technical and mental skills development on the range. The purpose of this 1 day workshop is to help you understand HOW to use Attentional Focus whilst developing skills and demonstrate HOW to TRAIN for TRUST on the course in competition.
This coaching day will explain why, where, when and how to guide your attentional focus throughout the seconds of your pre-shot, execution and post-shot. Understanding how the brain processes visual, external and internal auditory information and how to control that which you are attending to is the key to golfing success. When you actively train your Attention on the range, you reveal a flow within your physical actions. All standards of golfer benefit significantly from an understanding of how to use attentional focus skills.
