Video Golf Tip | Concentration Scorecard

One of the most important skills any golfer can have is the ability to concentrate. I have been studying this skill for the past 22 years with the best golfers in the world and I have developed a concentration scorecard that I ask each of my golfers to fill out after every round. On the scorecard you have to remember every shot you hit and circle whether “yes” you were concentrating fully or “no” you were not. If you put down “no” for any shot there are 10 reasons that I have found which are the most likely reasons that cause one to lose concentration. After a period of twelve rounds I go back and analyze what reasons for a loss of concentration keep popping up over and over for each golfer. What we find is that for good golfers only three of the 10 concentration lapse reasons show up very often, but consistently they are the same ones showing up over and over. What I would like you to do is to click on my web site on GolfSpan.com and you will find a copy of this concentration scorecard. If you keep a concentration scorecard for twelve rounds I will be very surprised if you do not find a real pattern of concentration mistakes that show up. Once you identify where your concentration lapses occur then you are able to zero in on them and begin to correct your concentration problems. Try it for twelve rounds. Click on GolfSpan.com and go to my web site, keep your scorecards and analyze them. It is a very good way to improve your game because once you improve your concentration I guarantee you your scores will go down.
