Sports Psychology Success Stories: How A Pro Golfer Found His Tempo

Posted by: Dr. Granat on October 23, 2018

A Golfer Who Lost His Tempo


Many years ago, I golfer with a professional golfer with a beautiful swing came to see me. He was complaining that he lost his tempo.

He was struggling on the range and on the course.

I watched him hit some balls. And then I interviewed about this problem.

Interestingly, I learned that he also played the guitar and that he loved The Beatles and their music.

I asked him to start humming or singing his favorite Beatles song and I asked him to allow that tune to enter his mind before he steps up to the golf ball.

Miraculously, he instantly rediscovered his ideal tempo and he started hit the ball purely on the range and on the course.

I encouraged him to play, sing, hum or listen to The Beatles during warm ups and prior to hitting the golf ball.
