Do You Struggle With Confidence Under Pressure?

Coping With Anxiety Under Pressure

Have you taken several years off from your golf game and then came back and returned to competitive golf only to find that you struggle with confidence and anxiety under pressure?

Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the Golfer’s Mental Edge CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf using golf psychology strategies developed over the last 20 years of his career.

In this week’s golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, answers a question from a golfer who struggles with anxiety under pressure.

Here is the question Sid asks this week:

“I was a D1 golfer and I’m 47 years old now and returned to playing competitive golf after several years off. While my game has returned through a year of diligent practice, I am significantly struggling with anxiety and confidence issues under pressure. I would like to overcome these mental obstacles as I feel my physical skills are still there to achieve success in golf.”

COHN: “Part of being out of golf for a while and then coming back and working on your physical skills is that you’re really not tournament tough or tournament ready yet even thought you’ve been working on your skills for the past year, its completely different to go out there and perform in competition… Sometimes golfers get stuck in a practice mindset or mentality.”

Golf Psychology CD

What’s the big sign that your mental game is the weak link in your golf game? When you can’t play consistently as well as when you play a practice or casual round–or your range game is way better than your game on the course. If you suffer from lack of focus, low self-confidence, poor composure or other mental game obstacles on the course, you can’t reach your true potential in golf.

The Golfer’s Mental Edge 2.0 Audio and Workbook program is ideal for any amateur, collegiate, junior, and tour professional golfer.

Golf coaches and instructors would also be wise to teach “The Golfer’s Mental Edge 2.0” principles to their players. This program is perfect for any golfer who wants to improve performance and consistency by managing their mind better on the course.
