Freeing Your Putter To Improve Your Golf Game

Do You Struggle With 3 And 4 Putting?

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 has been struggling with 3 and 4 putting. He is having a hard time transitioning to his forward stroke.

“Why would a golfer, who has putt thousands of times on the practice green and on the course, can’t take the putter back? To me, it’s not a stroke issue or how smooth or slow you’re taking it back.

The main issue here is that it’s really based on fear, over thinking and over control. Everything that you’re telling me is really about over control or thinking too much about the stroke.

This is how many golfers get trapped into freezing over the ball, with the inability to pull the putter back or inability to transition from the back swing to the forward swing, because there is too many thoughts going on. There is too much over control. This is due to the fear.”

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.
