Struggling with your thoughts, feelings and emotions on the golf course?
Learn how your mind works. Get out of your own way and play your best golf more often.
I’ve yet to meet the golfer who plays better with more on their mind, rather than less.
So why does modern golf coaching involve giving golfers more information – more things to think about, more things to worry about?
Clarity of mind doesn’t come from more information, from knowledge.
It comes from understanding.
To play your best golf consistently, you need to understand three things:
You need to understand your golf swing.
You need to understand the game.
And you need to understand yourself.
When you understand things, you don’t need to think about them.
You get out of your own way and play with freedom.
That’s what my golf coaching philosophy is all about.
Sounds bonkers but scores don’t lie!
Instant improvement in the second round of the Wallasey Seniors Championship today.
On the first tee I reminded myself that I love golf. I love the challenge, I love hitting good shots, love hitting recovery shots and love playing in the rain.
Every time my mind started getting anxious I just accepted it and let it pass.
Focused on awareness of balance in my swing. On how smoothly the putter moves.
Enjoyed my golf game, won best gross.
As I said earlier, bonkers!
I’ll let you know when I’m back to scratch.
My golf coaching philosophy is based on my experiences of playing the game at a high level for over 20 years.
I played my best golf when I was enjoying the game and not thinking too much about how I was doing what I was doing.
I believe most other golfers play their best in the same state of mind.
By helping you understand yourself, as well as your golf swing, I can help you get out of their own way.
“I was at the end of my tether.
My golf was poor, I wasn’t enjoying it.
I was wondering whether all the time, effort and money was worth it.
I’d taken dozens of lessons, read books, golf magazines and watched hundreds of YouTube videos.
The frustration I was feeling on the course began to follow me home.
One golf coaching session with Sam changed everything.
It led to a completely new perspective on my golf swing, on the game, and on my life.”
Coaching the Mental Side of the Game
When you’re struggling with your game, it’s often hard to know where to start.
Are doubts about your golf swing making you feel anxious?
Or are your anxious feelings causing tension in your swing?
“Just a quick note to say thank you for the golf coaching yesterday. It was great to talk to someone who knows as much about the mental side of the game as they do about the golf swing. I felt so much better on the course today and hit some really good shots.
Golf feels like fun again!”
