It is great to be back with you again on the Brain Booster.

Today we have with us a good friend and colleague from Ireland David Kearney

I have known David over 20 years and in that time he has forged for himself a great career at the top of the coaching ladder.

We get the chance to discuss his work for the Women’s National Team in Ireland

He has recently published a wonderful book called ‘The Golfing Buddha’

It is a remarkable read detailing his journey as a coach culminating in a journey to the Olympic Games in Japan with the Irish Women’s team

The book has so many qualities but perhaps most of all the honesty with which David shares with us his journey as a player and coach

The highs and the lows

The good times and the not so good

At times the frustrations in trying to get the best out of himself and the players he has worked with

We get the chance to talk about the role mentors have played in his life

The good people along the way

The value and impact a single sentence can have on the trajectory of your career or your experience of the game

David is extremely well read and has experienced working with some of the top coaches in the game

The influence of Buddhism on his thinking and attitude

The concept of ‘right action’

How mentally we fall into traps that create so much suffering

Mindfulness and the ability to be able to notice your thinking as opposed to just reacting to your thoughts

Developing equanimity

Working with junior players

The tough role of being a parent

How coaches can best support promising junior players

You will find a tremendous warmth and wisdom in David’s book which shines brightly in this podcast.
