Everyone Says that You Have The Talent. Everyone Says You Have The Game. But Why Are The Big Prizes Eluding You?
Your probably a tour professional, or competitive golfer. Already playing the game to a very good level. But maybe your talent isn’t manifesting itself in wins. Everyone is always telling you that you have what it takes to secure one of the games big prizes. But why isn’t it happening?
The world of professional golf has never been more competitive. So many players now who can drive the ball miles. But you know that you are a better player than most of them. Whats holding you back?
Perhaps it’s because you have developed mental habits that aren’t allowing your game to flourish. Leaving you with subtle self-doubts. Are you really as good as people say you are?
Maybe This Scenario is Familiar…
The par four fourteenth. you are in contention again. A great drive off the tee. A well honed six iron, right to the heart of the green. Setting up an excellent birdie opportunity. From tee to green you are one of the best on tour. A nice four footer for a three. It looks a simple putt.
But maybe it’s anything but simple. For if you have lost all confidence in the putter, putts around the closing holes are never easy. Probably used to be a strength of your game. But inside maybe you believe that you are a bad putter.
The grip on the putter tightens. But, there’s nothing you feel that you can do about it. The doubts are starting to hold sway again.
Typically, you leave it miserably short. Scared of going too far past. Then, with a three footer for a solid par, you drag it left. To your horror, he then watch your bogey putt miss on the right. And you slip out of contention. Leaving you with a sinking feeling. Do you recognise this scenario?
You Want To Throw The Putter In The Lake…
You probably want to throw your putter in the lake. In moments like this, golf stops feeling like fun. You know that things have to change. You can’t carry on like this.
Maybe you have read all the books, by the gurus like Dr. Bob Rotella. And paid thousands of pounds for lessons over the years. But somehow, the doubts don’t seem to go away.
The reason for that, is books can help. But they are not as effective as having an expert right there, by your side, to help you every step of the way.
Also, golf coaches are good at resolving technical issues. But, from my experience, they do not have the expertise to help with problems related to how a player is thinking.
You might have considered calling a golf psychologist before. But maybe, you thought that things would somehow get better. Or, you weren’t really sure what was involved. Or would it really work? Surely they are going to give you too many things to think about and over-complicate your game?
The Many Things That Can Impact On Your Game…
Do you recognise any of these behaviours that can hold back your talent?
- Negative thoughts that eat away at confidence. Doubts set in.
- Simple putts are missed – You dread those little putts…
- You become ultra cautious – The fun goes out of the game…
- You have doubts over what club to take? – Indecision sets in
- You build up anxieties about particularly holes – You repeat the same mistakes!
- You rush shots – You want to get it over with…
- You take too long over shots – You know your going to hook it!
- You go mad at yourself when you hit a bad shot – It must help…but does it?
- A good round disintegrates – Again and again!

Since the beginning of the 2011 season, I have helped:

- A female tour professional, overcome her anxiety over short putts
- A top amateur in the habit of throwing away winning leads, learn to win from the front
Colin Montgomerie Hadn’t Won In Seven Years…
Colin Montgomerie hadn’t won a tournament since his win at the European Open in 2007. In 2013 Colin picked up the phone to tap into my knowledege. He had just missed the cut at the Indian Open, and was in urgent need of re-discovering his winning ways.
After a single Golf Psychology session, Colin’s problems were fixed, and within months he secured the Senior Masters Title at Woburn. Followed up by victory in the US Seniors Open. Colin has subsequently won three more events on the Seniors tour, and is testimony to what can happen when the mental side of your game is a good as your technique.
