Mental Golf Coaching - Take Your Golf Game to the Next Level

Do you want to play more consistent golf, lower your handicap, and have fewer blow up holes? Not to mention have more fun on the golf course?

If so, mental performance coaching might be just what your golf game needs.

Here's the thing... swing changes take months, if not years, before finally feeling comfortable. But there is a good chance your swing isn't the reason you aren't playing up to your potential - it's your mental game.

As Jack Nicklaus said, "Golf is 90% mental, only 10% physical."

Having the right mental skills will help you learn how to get in the zone, stay calm under pressure, and play your best every single round. Believe it or not, it's easier than you might think once you understand your Mental Golf Type.

Mental Golf Coaching: Unlock Your Potential on the Course

As you probably know, the mind plays a crucial role in achieving peak performance on the golf course. While physical skill and technique are essential in golf, the mental aspect of the game arguably even more important. Without the right mental game strategies, it's easy to get negative, frustrated, get bogged down with swing thoughts, and not even enjoy the game.

But when both your mind and swing work together, this is where greatness happens. If you're like most golfers, you probably find yourself struggling with concentration, confidence, focus, and managing pressure.

Trust me, I've been there myself. Once I learned about Mental Golf Type and started working with a coach, my game improved fast and had more confidence than ever.

Improve Your Mental Game Fast Using Mental Golf Type

At Wicked Smart Golf, I believe that mental coaching is the missing link if you want to achieve breakthrough results. As an elite amateur, golf writer, and certified mental coach, I have a deep understanding of sports psychology/golf psychology with extensive knowledge of the intricacies of the game of golf. 

While I'm not a former professional golfer or PGA Tour winner, I've become a top-ranked amateur golfer, +2 handicap, and went to Q-school. So I know what it takes to play your best golf under pressure.

Alongside 20+ years of playing golf and using proven techniques through Mental Golf Type, I can create a tailored plan to your individual needs, helping you develop mental resilience, focus, and confidence on the course.

Mental Golf Coaching - What to Expect

Unlike other mental performance coaches, I don't believe in a one-size fits all approach. Every player's success should be unique to match your personality type.

Mental Golf Type is NOT some cookie-cutter approach to your game. Instead, you'll receive personalized attention and guidance to learn how to play golf that is 100% unique to how your mind is wired.

Here's what you can expect when working together: 

1. Comprehensive Assessment

The first step is to understand your current mental game, goals, strengths, weaknesses, and other areas of your golf game. This begins with a self-assessment to quickly identify your Mental Golf Type (personality type) to figure out how to think, act, and operate on the course.

This information serves as the foundation for designing a customized coaching plan that addresses your specific needs.

2. Custom Coaching Plan

Based on the assessment, we'll create a personalized coaching plan that targets your unique mind to play your best golf. Whether you struggle with maintaining focus during high-pressure situations or need help building confidence on the course, our plan will be designed to address those areas directly.

3. One-on-One Coaching Sessions

With video mental coaching, I'll provide you with the tools and techniques needed to optimize your mental game and become your own coach on the course.

Through a series of one-on-one video sessions, I'll work closely with you to improve your mental strength, enhance your focus, and develop effective strategies for managing challenges and adversity on the golf course.

4. Access to Wicked Smart Golf Academy

Alongside mental game coaching, you'll also get access to some or all parts of Wicked Smart Golf Academy (depending plan you enroll with).

This is an online training comprising five programs to help you master all areas of the game. From practice to course management, and putting. You can go through these trainings on your own time to learn fundamentals like:

  • Pre-shot routines.
  • Course management strategies.
  • How to play your best in tournaments.

And a lot more.
