Where Does Self-Confidence Come From in Golf?

Does Your Golfer Lack Self-Confidence?

Golf Psychology Podcast

Are you a parent with a young golfer that competes a lot, yet your golfer seems to lack self-confidence 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 sports parent about her 9 year old daughter.

Here is the question Sid asks this week:

“I have a 9 year old girl golfer that competes almost every weekend. However, she has problems with self-confidence and when she feels pressured, her game declines. Can your program help her?”

COHN: “I do work with very young athletes but I suggest that with golfers that are 11 and younger, that we start in a different place then doing the full one-on-one mental game coaching… However, at that age you might be better off providing her with some resources that will help improve her confidence.”

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.
