Golf Mental Game Training
The first listening of Wade Pearse’s SECOND Audio Coaching Session:
After listening to Wade Pearse's FIRST audio coaching session a few days ago, I played golf at the weekend and REALLY noticed a difference ALREADY in the way I thought about my golf game. For example, I had a run of three holes with unlucky breaks, the 5th, 6th and 7th holes, whereas before, I would have been mumbling things like " Oh yeah, just MY luck, I end up in a divot" or " I just hit THREE great shots in a row and LOOK where the stupid ball has ended up" like I was the only one it ever happened to. ( By the way, have you ever noticed that when you're not having a great game, you only ever notice the bad breaks? Wierd isn't it because I'm sure that if you actually recorded the number of bad breaks and the number of good breaks that they would more than likely even themselves up over time ! )
You know what it's like don't you, you get a run where just about everything goes wrong and then your game goes from bad to worse. So, instead of getting all 'het up' and down in the dumps, I followed the breathing instructions from the first golf mental game audio session and kept myself nice and calm. The great thing was on the 9th hole I had a GREAT birdie on a par 4 that got me right back on track and I went into the 1/2 way house for my bacon 'buttie' all happy and upbeat.
The back 9 was better than the front and I kept on an even keel the whole way through.
I listened to Wade's SECOND audio session earlier this evening and I pleased to see that he builds further and works on developing a winner's mindset, this golf mental game training audio session is called " Building A Winner's Mindset".
Here's my review of " Building A Winner's Mindset".:
The main topic of this audio session is to work on developing a permanent winner's mindset which carries on considerably from what I have written earlier on this post.
That when a ball has a bad lie, or lands in a divot, that you should walk to the ball with no different a mind set than if it were in a great place and to see each ball as a new challenge both for the physical result and for developing your mental strength. This is all part of learning to play golf under pressure as calmly as you do when playing a casual round with friends.
The overall mantra of this session is that 'Winners NEVER quit' and also in reverse, that 'Quitters never win'!
But it's not the overall concept of quitting, it's the point of not quitting in a lot of small ways before the 'big' quit. You will keep a mental edge over any opponent if you can keep the same mindset all the way through your round whatever the score happens to be or whatever miserable lie the ball ends up in. AND, that will REALLY freak your opponent out!
Your mind set predetermines the physiological state you are in and by constantly given yourself strong mental signals of a positive nature, your physiological changes will match your mental attitude.
The bottom line is, wherever the ball happens to be, that's your next, fresh challenge and each shot should be approached separately, NOT part of the ball you hit before and DEFINITELY not a part of mentally working out what score you would get if you can par this hole, and par the next hole, etc etc.
See the ball, hit it, and move on to the next shot. And that's all. Simple really.
Are you still going to get beaten even when you play better than your opponent ? Yes of course, sometimes. That's part of the game, just as getting bad breaks are part of the game, you will always get bad breaks from time to time, the difference is, what do you DO when you get those bad breaks?
Do you whinge and complain that the golf Gods are against you? and only you? Or do you just get on with it and deal with it!
THAT's going to be the edge you will get by following such a strong golf mental game training program as this, you will learn how to manage your mindset and as you do this, you will notice the mind set of your opponent, who will probably be doing just the same thing as you USED to do and as soon as you see that, you KNOW you are on the right track, you are starting to make those mental changes and give yourself the mindset of a winner.
You CAN'T change a bad break, it's already happened, but you CAN change the way you deal with it and therefore change the future of your round.
You only have to try this once in your next round to understand the power of this training and when you realise this, you will get MORE of what you focus on.
Turn that bad break into a good one for the next ball and you will have won that small game for yourself , and then the next one and the next one until suddenly, there it is, you HAVE a winner's mindset and you have it NOW, not sometime in the future, it's THAT fast a change that you can make for yourself and it's a natural way to be.
Golf Mental Game Training
The more I listen to Wade's teaching the more it makes sense to me and the more I'm looking forward to going out on the course and dealing with all these little challenges and as I mentioned in my story about WHY I'm working my way through this course so thoroughly, if I can come off the course with a positive experience rather than a miserable feeling as I was getting last year, then I'm already a winner.
I will OWN a winner's mindset and its MINE to keep and not only for the game of golf.
Wade speaks well and explains things clearly , building a winner's mindset will give you an unshakeable confidence that is noticable to an opponent and usually quite hard to deal with for them.
If you think about it in reverse, once you see your opponent is starting to get rattled, you KNOW the advantage is yours so, if they see that you are coping with everything that gets thrown at you they will very often start to weaken and crumble.
The 2nd half of the golf mental game training audio session part 2 is the best bit, where Wade's voice will take you through the breathing exercises and deep into a wonderful, calming trance like peace where thoughts and ideas will be suggestedand taken onboard by your subconscious mind.
That's it for this part of the review, the next one will be for the video golf mental game coaching sessions of which there are two and also a bonus video with kettleball exercises to strengthen your golfing core.
Watch out for my reviews, there's a LOT of sections to this training course and I want to cover them all in depth!!
