Podcast Episodes

I’ve been a guest on various podcasts over the past couple of years.

You can find links to some of the most popular episodes below.

The Brain Booster Podcast, with Karl Morris

Karl has become a good friend since being kind enough to write the forward for The Three Principles of Outstanding Golf. I’ve been a guest on the Brain Booster a couple of times now

In this episode of his podcast, we discuss the problems golfers encounter when they try to manage or control their thinking, and I share some of the ways in which my ideas have developed and moved on since the book was published in 2016.

You can listen to the conversation by following this link.

In this second conversation we talk about some of the wider implications of learning about the principles behind performance and enjoyment.

Making a Club Champion Podcast, with Chris Baker and Malcolm Lewis

As you might be aware, I’m a big fan of The Legend of Bagger Vance, the novel by Stephen Pressfield.

The book was made into a Hollywood film starring Will Smith, Matt Damon and Charlize Theron.

In this episode of Making a Club Champion, former Open Championship Silver Medal winner Malcolm Lewis discuss the key ideas from the book with host, Chris Baker.

Meaningful Sport, with Noora Ronkainen – Episode 1

This is one of my favourite conversations from the past couple of years. Noora is a great interviewer and asks some brilliant questions.

We discuss the big topics: why we play sport, why we enjoy it, and why we sometimes fall out of love with the games we used to enjoy.

The Talent Equation, with Stuart Armstrong.

Stuart is one of the most well respected coaches and coach developers in the country – and a keen golfer. In this episode of his Talent Equation podcast we discuss some important elements of the sporting experience that are often overlooked, preventing some athletes from realising their potential.

Making a Club Champion, with Chris Baker

My first chat with Chris Baker for his Making a Club Champion podcast. We discuss why golfers often find it harder to enjoy the game as they improve, and how changing your experience of the game doesn’t have to mean hours and hours of practice.

The Talent Equation, with Stuart Armstrong

A second, more in depth conversation with Stuart. We explore some of the societal and cultural beliefs and misunderstandings that can get in the way of us enjoying the game, and playing our best when we really want to.

The Magic Academy, with Russell Earnshaw.

Rugby Coach Weekly with Dan Cottrell

As the name suggests, Dan’s podcast is aimed more at coaches than players. However, we had a really good conversation about what we can and can’t control in terms of thinking and feelings when we play sport. We also talked about confidnence, one of the most important, but misunderstood aspects of performance in any game.

The Round Up Rodeo, with Phil Llewellyn

Jonny Wilkinson is a legend in British sport. Few can forget his winning drop goal in the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final. His interview with Jake Humphrey on High Performance podcast was one of the most important conversations about sport and life I have heard in the last 25 years.

Listen to it here.

In this episode of the Round Up Rodeo podcast, Phil Llewellyn chairs a discussion about the key messages Jonny talked about in that interview, and how a better understanding about the way the mind works can help both wellbeing and performance both on and off the field of play.

Conversation with PGA Golf Coach Gavin Clark

As well as being a guest on other podcasts, I also host conversations and discussions for my other website, SportsPrinciples.com.

In this episode I chat to PGA Golf Coach Gavin Clark about a range of topics that will be of interest to both coaches and players.
