Do you know how much your attitude and thought process before a round affects how well you play?

What you think about as you're driving to the course and the expectations you set for yourself as you warm up, can make or break a round before it's even started!

When you're feeling more confident, you play better. It's that simple. But how do you get yourself feeling as confident as possible? This is an important question.

Be as confident as possible

Your physical game is not going to improve during your warm-up (nor is it on the course), but your mind-set will determine how well you are able to access your best skills. If you start to doubt yourself or question your ability, it's going to be a struggle out there.

You have to believe that a great round is possible - this will help you produce those quality shots you know you are capable of. This is easier said than done. However, it is possible by using what I call "pre-round success triggers".

The prospect of a great round becomes a whole lot more believable when you ask the right questions and put everything in perspective.

After years of speaking to players of all levels (weekend golfers to Tour players) in the moments before a round, there's no doubt that your thought process and attitude at this time influences how you play. It's essential that you give yourself a good mental game warm-up by creating a mood for playing a great round of golf.  In my brand new series of audio lessons, you'll get the same words of encouragement I offer my Tour players and something I call "success triggers" to help you stay positive and focused on the right things throughout your round.

After you listen to this audio session you’ll be able to:

  • Enjoy the round no matter how you play
  • Control your nerves and maintain an optimal level of excitement
  • Feel like there’s no limit to your scoring potential
  • Shift your focus from score to process, for better shots
  • “Bounceback” by re-framing your mind after you’ve hit a poor shot
  • Own your swing and have more control over the golf ball instead of trying a million different swing thoughts.



Luckily for us confidence is largely a state of mind...

Many of my students phone me 30 minutes or so before their tee time, to get a refresher on what their goals should be for the round and to feel more confident before playing.

Throughout the many years of coaching the mental game to players of all levels, I've learned what questions to ask, and the goals to set, to get a positive response (i.e. better performances).

Since so many people have asked me this question, I feel compelled to share the answer with you.

In this series of 10 audio lessons, that I recommend you listen to while you're in the car or while you're warming up, you'll learn my top 10 success triggers that are guaranteed to have you feeling better about your game and maximize your confidence before playing.

We're going to keep it simple, yet highly effective. I'm going to give you a plan for your round so that you can stay focused on what's most important - so that you can remain positive and in control of how successful you are, instead of being at the mercy of your scores.

Let's commit to starting every round with a champion's mindset and give yourself the best chance of success.
