improve-golf-mental-gameIf you are looking to improve the mental side of your golf game, this is the page for you!

We hear that 90% of the golf game is mental. In that case, why do we only put 1% of effort into it.

You know the various circumstances in which you need to improve your golf mental game: It may be the five foot putt to win the day from your buddies, or the par-3 with water all the way until the green, or the critical chip that you chunked last time and that’s all you’re thinking about this time.

These situations (and many others!) are why we need to improve the mental side of our golf game.

You simply cannot approach the golf course or approach any shot with negative thoughts in your mind. These thoughts are too likely to become a self-fulfilling prophecy and you end up hitting the bad shot that your negative thoughts inspire.

We need to change all that with a better head game on the golf course and that’s why we’re here today.

Watch the videos below on how to improve the mental side of your golf game to approach every shot and each round in the proper mental state.
