Today we welcome back a very good friend of the podcast in the shape of Nick Bradley.
Nick is one of the most innovative thinkers about the game.
Amongst many other highlights in his career he worked with Paul McGinley as part of the successful Ryder Cup team in 2014
He has published a great new book called
‘The 50 Secrets to Great Golf You DON”T Know about YET’
The book is a series of essays compiled by Nick over the years working with some of the best players in the world such as Sir Nick Faldo and Justin Rose
We discuss how your philosophy of the game will affect just about everything you do from the movements you make to the experience of the game itself
Are you a golfer who plays to WIN or are you a golfer who PLAYS to PLAY?
A very important distinction
Which one are you?
Once you get really clear on this your approach to the game can match your intention
Get it wrong and you can be hopelessly misaligned
Nick has spent a LOT of time with Sir Nick Faldo
Why was he so great?
How did he work on his game in a way that was different from other players?
The ability to blend the technical and the mental
Nick makes a valid point about our ability to create the SHOT we wish has to be supported by the correct motion of the club and body
How to best do this
Working with your ego
How to befriend and utilise your golfing ego
What does that LOOK like practically ?
How to use the ego to ask EFFECTIVE QUESTIONS
Dealing with first tee nerves or being able to close out a tournament
How to manage your ENERGY
Can you become a REDUCTIONIST?
Can you save time and energy to become a better player?
The reduction of thought through habit
Can you SIMPLIFY your golfing business plan?
What is it?
How can YOU apply it?
Should a tour player have a coach as an employee or should he be a consultant?
A really interesting conversation on the direction of elite coaching
Nick is always great value
He is not afraid to voice some controversial opinions
He says it as it is
Very refreshing and you will gain so much from his insights
