Golf Audio Coaching- Awakening Your Golf Mind

The first listening of Wade Pearse's Audio Coaching Session:

Before I started working with  Wade Pearse's Golf Mental Training Course,  I was looking for a way to bring enjoyment back into my golf game, you can read my story here, I won't repeat it here as I want to get on with my review of this course.

My thoughts towards golf last year were negative and quite honestly miserable and joyless.  Playing golf  had become a boring chore and as much as I enjoyed the company of my club teammates and playing partners, I had no enjoyment for the game at all. The less I wanted to play, the less I practised, and of course, the worse my game became and the cycle of misery continued for the whole of the year.

At the beginning of this year however, I decided that I've put so much time and effort into my golf game over the past 12 years that I want to get back to playing golf and decided to do something about it.

I've reviewed lots of golf hypnosis downloads and a lot of them are really good as you will see from the reviews on this site.

However, I need more than individual golf hypnosis downloads to bring about the shift in my mentality I'm looking for.

I've known about Wade Pearse's Golf Mental Game Training Program for quite some time and I've always liked the concept of having a whole course based around improving your mental attitude and mental strengths so I've chosen Wade's course to bring about my rehab.

As Wade says in his course material:"Every golfer has heard the saying "It's all in your head" or "Golf is 90% mental" or "Golf is the most mentally demanding sport in the world." Yet what do golfers do about it? Well, most often absolutely nothing! Not necessarily because they don't want to, but sometimes golfers actually think the mental game doesn't matter to them!"

For me, the most important step has already been taken, I've made the decision that I WANT to do something about my attitude and I am GOING to get back my enjoyment of the game, so, THIS is where I'm at.

GOLF MENTAL TRAINING COURSE

Now, after my first listening of the first part of the audio coaching session called " Awakening Your Golf Mind" I know I've made the right decision to follow this course.

My Review of the first part of the audio coaching session called " Awakening Your Golf Mind":

Firstly, I have to say that the sound of the voice on any audio training session is SO important for the overall enjoyment and effectiveness of the session , it's no good if the  speaker has an accent that you can't understand, or the timbre of the voice grates on the nerves, or it's too high or too low, Wade's voice passes that test with flying colours, he has a deep, soft relaxing voice with an 'easy on the ears' slight Canadian accent that enters the subconscious mind very easily and gently.

( If there are any ladies reading this by the way, you will like Wade's voice, GUARANTEED! ! ) Anyway, I digress ! ;-)

The subject of this audio session is to create the right frame of mind to enjoy playing golf and to play successfully, that the aim of playing is NOT about ONLY the score, but about getting into a comfortable and relaxed state of mind so that you play at your optimum mental levels and that way, everything else , scores, results etc, will happen naturally.

He takes you through a short breathing exercise before leading you into a deeply relaxed state and talks about how to sustain the feeling of comfort and relaxation throughout your game, ( getting into and staying in the zone, as the old cliche goes ).

He encourages you to bring to mind how it felt when you were playing golf really well, and to visualise the scene around you, the colours, the sounds, the feelings you had, the confidence you felt ( all successful NLP techniques of course) . The more you listen to this audio session, the easier it becomes to utilise the techniques on the golf course. To me, if I can come off the course feeling content and happy with my game, whatever the result, it's worth it's weight in gold!

Watch out for my review of the 2nd audio session for Wade Pearse's Golf Mental Game Coaching Program, I'm looking forward to it!

Golf Rehab: Round 1

So, today was my first day back on my home course after spending the past month in the Middle East playing on a rock hard dry course. My home golf course is in the UK, just outside London and needless to say, quite a difference in conditions to the sun baked course, today the course was wet and soggy, it was also freezing cold but I had so many layers on I was immune to the cold.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I didn't enjoy playing golf last year, in fact, most of my rounds I wanted to be any where else but on a golf course.

This year, I WANT to play, and THAT is the difference. My golfing mindset is TOTAlly different! I missed playing with my team mates, our handicaps range between 10 and 14 and we're quite a competitive group.

My handicap is 13 at the moment, I used to be 10 but it has slowly crept up, ( see my handicap explanation here ).

I didn't start my round too well, but kept mentally VERY positive and kept patient.

Here's my score today, I'll use this as a benchmark for future rounds:

Par 4 4 4 3 4 3 5 4 5 36 4 3 4 4 5 4 3 4 5 36 72
My Score 7 7 5 4 5 5 5 7 6 51 4 3 5 5 5 6 3 7 6 44 95

Well, at least I kept below 100! My back 9 was MUCH better than my front round and I was striking the ball really well once I got used to the mud and slush on the course.

What was important today was that I kept postitive the whole time and I didn't let the bad shots 'get to me' I literally played just one shot at a time and didn't think backwards or forwards.

A good start to my year and most importantly I enjoyed the round.

Next step for me is to start listening to the golf mental training downloads from the training course.

More on that next...................
