In today’s show we provide an insight about how a coach and a player can evolve by taking ACTION
Instead of just keep repeating the same old patterns and habits
What are you going to DO that will make a difference?
What will you do with the information in this podcast?
We discuss today with Noel how he went from being a very player to an outstanding coach
To go from shooting in the SIXTIES in practice to the horror of taking NINETY in a tournament that mattered.
Can you imagine how that felt for him?
How could performance vary so wildly?
What was going on?
Logically this didn’t make any sense so
Noel decided to find out

We discuss how in years gone by how technical coaching and sports psychology seemed to be at odds with each other
How sports psychology may have not provided the benefit to many players that it should
The role of bio mechanics and what it can and can’t do for your game
The limitation so just ‘working’ on your body

Deemed by many as being the ‘wrong’ thing to do on the course Noel discover differently and how much it was actually down to the unique individual
A familiar theme on the Brain Booster about finding YOUR way and not hoping to discover THE way
Some great insights into attentional focus and the very best way to spend your practice time
