Does Your Golfer Lack Self-Confidence?
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.”

What are our mental coaching students saying?
“You helped me with my routine—it’s almost like it has a flow to it—you pull your club and boom you are into it. You should glide through the routine. It’s when you try to make yourself stick to a cadence; the routine feels out of sync. Helping me get into the flow of the routine has been a big help.”
~Joe Durant, PGA Tour winner

“My confidence level has never been higher! I can’t tell you how clearly I was able to think during all four rounds of tour-school. The simple game plan you gave me really focused me. My confidence level has never been higher during a tournament. No matter how much pressure was on, I was able to control my thoughts and execute. Thank you Dr. Cohn!”

What are mental game customers saying?
“Last year at this time, my eldest son Martin fell 3m from a tree and broke both his arms. A little inconvenient for his golf and for his basketball.
I took decided to subscribe to your site and undertake the kids focus program with him to take the opportunity to develop his mental side of sports.
The improvement has been very good and am very proud of how he now prepares, plays, and evaluates his performances as he has shown a great maturity for being ten years old. I am confident these skills will hold him in good stead for the future.”
