Are You A Perfectionist Golfer?

Golfers who are perfectionists can struggle with low confidence in both practice and in tournaments.

angry-golfer1Perfectionists golfers demand a lot from themselves about the quality of their performance. They have high expectations which can lead to self-doubt when these players do not perform up to their high standards.

Perfectionists also have a hard time transferring the confidence they develop in practice to the course. For example, they might feel confident hitting on the range, but doubt themselves when on the course playing a round.

In addition, perfectionists often desire approval from others. They want to be accepted by parents, coaches, and friends. What wrong with that? If they don't think they are gaining approval from others, their confidence can sink.

Here's the good news about perfectionist ball players....

Perfectionists are very motivated, have a strong work ethic, are committed to their goals, and have a desire to learn and improve.

They have a good mindset for practice, which is their strength. They are willing to improve and take instruction.

But here's the bad news... Perfectionists:

  • --Lose confidence quickly not performing well
  • --Expect to perform perfectly (hit all shots perfectly)
  • --Are very self-critical of their game
  • --Tend to dwell on mistakes and missed chances
  • --Are stuck in a practice mindset, which hurts them on course

What's the solution to the problems with perfectionism?

The answer is not easy. Many golfers  fit into the category of perfectionists. I understand the challenges it presents, but perfectionist golfers do not admit it's a hindrance. They can be in denial.

The first step is to help golfers uncover the beliefs that underlie perfectionism (and keep them stuck). AND help them understand how it hurts their confidence (overcome denial).

For example, we find that players often believe they must be perfect to perform well:

"I should demand high expectations of myself because I work so hard to achieve my goals."

OR

"I need to perform perfectly today and avoid making any bogies."

As you can see, these beliefs do not help players perform their best--when not at their best.

Here's the process for changing beliefs for perfectionists:

  1. Help golfers understand the disadvantages of perfectionism and agree these absolute beliefs get in the way of performance.
  2. Uncover the beliefs and behaviors that support perfectionism and hurt confidence.
  3. Replace the unhealthy beliefs that hurt confidence with a philosophy that helps confidence grow.

Here's an example of number 3 above:

"I can perform well even when my swing does not feel or look perfect."

If YOU are a perfectionists golfer, try to buy into this new way of viewing how you perform.

Are nerves ruining your first tee shot?

Are nerves ruining your first tee shot?

I don't know WHAT it is about that first tee shot!

Nerves? Expectation? People Watching? Excitement? Dread?

You know what it's like - despite your best efforts, the thoughts still crowd your mind:

Will you perform at your best?

Will you make a mess of your first shot?

Will you duff your drive into the bushes?

Never mind who is watching.

Do you go for the driver or play it safe with a smaller wood or iron?

Prepare your brain to tee off perfectly

The trouble is, no matter how many hours you spend on the driving range, it doesn't prepare your mind for the pressure of that first shot. And that's where mental preparation comes in.

Prepare your brain to tee off perfectly

The trouble is, no matter how many hours you spend on the driving range, it doesn't prepare your mind for the pressure of that first shot. And that's where mental preparation comes in.

To perform at your best you need to relax and focus completely on the shot. To do this consistently you need to train your brain so 'being in the zone', becomes your instinctive response to teeing off. This is why we have developed this 'Tee off with confidence' golf hypnotic download.

The best golfers reliably access an intense yet relaxed state of mind that has them focusing on what they are doing not how they are doing it.

Use 'Tee of with confidence' a few times before your next round and you'll notice the difference immediately. The first tee will change from something to be endured into an enjoyable - even fun - experience.

Download your 'tee off with confidence' hypnotic download today and really enjoy yourself the next time you step onto the first tee.

Dear Fellow Lady Golfer,

Play Better Golf, Starting In Less Than 5 Minutes From Now

Did you know that women are more flexible than men, have more efficient swings, and are more naturally suited to the game than our male counterparts? That being a fact one has to wonder why we are so intimidated by being on the course or by male golfers.

Muscle does not make a good swing. Distance alone does not make a good golfer. Yet this, coupled with a certain arrogance by males on the golf course cause a very high level of intimidation even while our muscle-bound friend plays golf no better than we ourselves might.
