Sports Psychology: Golf Tip Of The Week From Dr. J. Granat

   Three golf pros came to see me this week. They all were suffering from confidence problems.    There are many things I do to restore a golfer’s confidence and belief in himself or herself.  Some of these ideas are included in my golf program.

     I also frequently encourage golfers to get maps of the courses they are about to play prior to the tournament.

This is very important, especially if golfers are not familiar with the track. 

Then we work on  visualizing exactly how we want to  play the holes.  Obviously, extreme conditions, like wind and rain can change our strategies.  However, given the golfer’s strengths and weakness, it is important to identify ahead of time the holes that we can attack and  make birdies on.  This strategizing helps golfers to enter events with more focus and with a specific battle plan.
