Course 4: How to Think Like a Pro
There is no denying that the world's top golfers think in a way that sets them apart from the rest. With modern neuroscience we are now beginning to understand the mechanisms behind many of the mental strategies that great sportsmen and sportswomen use naturally.
This course will let you into some of the mental 'secrets' of golf legends like Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods so that you too can take your game to the next level.
In short, you'll learn how to harness the power of your mind to work for you, rather than against you.
We'll start by exploring the role of memory and emotions on your performance, and how you can take an active role in shaping your experience. You'll learn the best way to take something constructive from every game you play, even if it wasn't one of your best.
You'll also learn simple and practical techniques that you can use out on the course as well as at home to ensure that your mind is working with you when the pressure is on.
Finally, we'll talk about the elusive 'Zone' and how you can reach it more often.
