MENTAL GAME SEMINARS WITH DR.CHRIS LONSDALE
APRIL 20th, 2010
Last Tuesday evening was a very interesting evening for all involved in The Pure Golf Mental Game Training skills class at Leopardstown hosted by myself and Dr.Chris Lonsdale.For me over the years, the mental game has always been a key part of the make up of a golfer who is fulfilling their relative potential. To get the chance to work with Chris and 6 of our students for the evening was a thrill.The great thing about the session was that we managed to do a lot of it "actively" with clubs in our hands playing shots and applying some of the work.
The content of the course is aimed at covering 2 aspects. How to organise and execute your practice routines correctly and efficiently and also how to create a proper "Shot-Routine" one of which is of value and purpose.
PRACTICE; Most of our practice sessions consist of just hitting balls out on to the range trying to feel the latest move or swing tip. Chris expanded this to suggest that there was also a place for "variable" practice, that is preparing for and playing shots that you would have in a normal round of golf and changing targets and clubs after each shot. Sound more like Golf!?
SHOT-ROUTINES; Chris asked us to focus the mind before we play the shot and try to suggest to ourselves exactly what it is we were trying to do...to rehearse it..and then execute it!
All in all, it was a great evenings work and if you would like to join us for one of them, just hit the contact button and we look forward to welcoming you.
