Over the last ten years, I have counseled a number of golfers who have played on
various professional tours: PGA, LPGA, Nationwide, Hooters Tour, etc.
I work with them on the mental aspects of the game. I teach these players how to be calm, confident, focused and optimistic under pressure. I show them how to get into
the zone and I have written and lectured extensively on these topics.
I have a number or products, books and CD programs devoted to these topics.
Visit www.stayinthezone.com Google me Jay P. Granat, Ph.D. or go to www.amazon.com. Golf Digest named me of the country’s top ten mental gurus.
The golfers and I also spend some time on course management and strategies for competing and for winning events.
In working with these athletes, I have also analyzed the mathematics associated with
winning professional events. It appears that shooting a score of 69 is a reasonable number to have as a goal. A score of 69 will get you to three under par on many courses.
If you can shoot this number often, you can earn money in many events.
If you review the winning scores in many tournaments, you will see that this is a
reasonable and sensible goal for a person who wants to earn his or her living a golf
Having given you this number as a goal, it is important to understand that some
players perform well with a number as a goal and others do not. You need to know
and understand your own personality and what works for you on the course.
Whether or not to watch the scoreboard is another issue which I go over with the
golf pros who I coach.
