The Mental Keys - Free Golf Tips

Training, Training, Training

After a friendly game with a stranger, he bought me a drink and told me that I had intimidated him. Then he firmly said, "I don't get intimidated."

I asked him why he got intimidated. He replied that my level of confidence never changed whether I made or missed a shot and I always played as if I would make the shot. Then I asked him what he did. He told me that he coached wrestling and was the lead man for a swat team.

Being curious, I asked him what exactly does the lead man for a swat team do. He told me that he was the first person through the door and his job was to take out whoever was on the right side of the hallway or room before he was shot or killed.

I told him that I was a mental trainer and asked him how he mentally prepares himself to do his job. He told me that it's the same for wrestling or being the first one through the door. Training, training, training was his answer.

He trains himself to focus totally on executing the process without any fear or concern about the outcome. I asked him if he had any fear. He said his only fear was that his partner, the second man through the door behind him, wouldn't take out whoever was on the left side of the hallway or room.

Then he told me that he relies on his partner's training to keep him out of harms way. Can you rely on your mental training to keep you out of harms way on the golf course or do you still get emotionally involved and think about the outcome?

Scientific research has revealed that human beings learn and remember what they have learned through repetition. Isn't it amazing then, that so many golfers expect to read a piece of information one time and retain it forever?

You may feel that my newsletters and mental tips are somewhat repetitious, but that's OK. They are designed to be repetitious to help you to keep polishing the wheel until you have the best mental game around. Once you have a great mental game, it's important to keep training, training, training to keep it that way.

Keep polishing your wheel,

Michael Anthony
