Colin Cromack (UK):
Colin is an Attentional Focus Instructor and NON-technical golf coach. He coaches the theory and practical application of the critical psychological skill of Attentional Focus, the neuropsychology behind the golfer's greatest challenge - the ability to concentrate and focus attention consistently.
He has created an independently produced and published applied psychology golf coaching program. It reveals why poor attentional focus skills have such detrimental effects on the swings and putting strokes of amateurs and professionals. The majority analyse the symptoms, not the cause.
His vision is clear - to help golfers perform to their technical and physical potential by working in co-operation with technical and physical instructors with the same philosophy.
Colin specializes in the subject matter of attentional focus, specifically in relation to the game of golf where it is a critical skill to understand and master. However, it is of value in any life and sporting situations where one has time to "think" in the seconds before execution eg. Archery, tennis serve, rifle shooting, penalty taking in football and rugby.
Colin studied psychological science at Griffith University in Australia. His independent psychological theory is beneficial to golfers who have acquired good technical and physical skills and is most beneficial to advanced/elite golfers. It also provides the destination for those developing technical skills, which is where the work of Dr Tony Piparo is essential.
