Execute Your Range Swing to the Golf Course

Simplify Your Thoughts from Pre-round Warm-up to Finish

Do you have trouble taking your pre-round warm-up to the golf course and get nervous? In this week’s golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, responds to a question from Zack who had this to say about his game:

“I get nervous and can’t take preround practice to the first tee. I have trouble swinging freely on the course–like I do on the range.  And then I have very tentative shots. What’s going on with me?”

COHN: I’m gonna start saying, its not a pre-round practice, I think a lot of golfers get that wrong. It’s a pre-round warm-up. I don’t want you practicing your golf swing in your warm-up… You have to understand what is the ultimate fear that’s causing you nervous at the start of the round…

Listen to the podcast now to learn what Dr. Cohn has to say about addressing players fear and building self trust.

Golfer’s Mental Edge

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.
