5 Things You'll Need to Master the Mental Game of Golf

I want to talk to you a little bit about my philosophy. As a sports psychologists I am necessarily interested in mental skills, emotional skills, concentration and things like that. I am an old school kind of guy so I hope you are ready to work. The things that we will emphasize are:

  • Mental toughness
  • Developing different concentration skills
  • Goal setting
  • Self control
  • Relaxation

and some other things that will definitely enhance your ability to score on the golf course. We are mainly going to be interested in learning about you, learning about golf and how to handle the golf course. If you pay attention and you work hard you will improve, good luck.
