Is this you? How can GolfConfidence really help?
Most GolfConfidence clients are middle (26 to 13 H'cap) and low (12 to 4 H'cap) handicap golfers who practise and play regularly. They are committed to improving their performance and lowering their handicap. The expertise they DO NOT possess is how to control their thinking so they can play with consistency.So while handicaps may change, the struggles golfers are going through are remarkably similar. See if you struggle with these or similar problems?
You 'lose" your head and your temper when things go wrong. You hit a bad shot and it really affects you. Your shot selection and course management go out the window and the next thing you've tripled. You just can't seem to reestablish your game from there.
You make silly mistakes when you lose focus. It happens! You get distracted, you make silly decision and your lapse in concentration causes inconsistency. The next thing you know you've turned a good round into a shocker!
You lack confidence in your ability and you let negative thoughts creep in. Especially around better players, you just can't trust your swing or the line for your putts. When you are full of self-doubt and your confidence is down it is hard to put on a good score or minimise a bad one.
You don't see any consistency between the range and the course. You practice well but you struggle to see any consistency in your playing record week in week out. You miss short putts, your mood fluctuates and you throw away a good round with inconsistent play. It's so frustrating!!
Your technique breaks down under pressure. Your swing tightens up under pressure not letting you produce the quality shots that you know you can. There's a build up of tension in your putting stroke when under pressure (especially on fast greens). Basically you struggle and fall apart under pressure.
You throw away a good result in the last couple of holes. You start thinking about the final result too early in the round. You take your focus off what you are doing and you drop a couple of shots. You get too far ahead of yourself on the course.
No matter which one or more of these situations is true for you, please read on. You're in the right place. There is help for you at www.mentalgolfer.com.
