Attentional Focus Coaching for Golfers.
Traditional golf coaching practices worldwide do not SYSTEMATICALLY explain or train the golfers Attentional Focus when learning, practicing and playing resulting in persistent and frustrating symptoms for the golfer, both physical and psychological. TOG closes this significant education gap. No tips. No quick fixes. Our program needs deliberate practice.
ALL golfers hate inconsistent performance and yet never receive specialist coaching in this essential psychological skill. Institutionalised instruction focusing on ball, grip, alignment, stance, posture, club path etc. has your attention everywhere other than on target. Few discover HOW to TRUST their technical skills, employing flow disabling "swing thoughts".
Learning how to SWING GOLF CLUBS and learning how to PLAY GOLF are very different skills, which require deliberate and independent practice. Many try the former, so few experience the latter, mistakenly striving to CONSCIOUSLY control their body, swing or club. Conscious control INHIBITS performance when learning, practicing and competing.
Golf is a FEEL based game and you can't feel without a target in mind. Go and throw balls at different targets to appreciate this, then try it with no target. The target not only enables commitment for a golf shot, it enables feel and playing golf IS psychologically challenging for you have to look away from your target prior to executing a shot at it.
Without systematic training in Target Orientation golfers will switch their attention to the ball, club, body, swing, outcome or potential hazards. As a result the target is often missed, most blaming their "swing" for the wayward outcome. The elusive skill for playing golf is SINGLE POINTED CONCENTRATION and learned uniquely within our applied program.
