Seasons greetings to you all
Thank you so much for your support in the last 12 months
It is very much appreciated
On the Brain Booster we thought we would end the year with a ‘fireside chat” about the Lost Art of Golf book with co author Gary Nicol and co contributor Markus Westerberg
We get the chance to discuss some of the key concepts in the book
In particular we look at perhaps THE most important question
‘Why do you play golf?’
We explore how you can fall into the trap of playing the game for ‘other people’
How your ego can be distracted by the attention the game can give us
What if we had a simple goal of……..
How good can I get?
How this question creates a SAFE PLACE to play the game from
How this mindset puts you in a place where you LOOK for challenges instead of seeking the safety of ego satisfaction
The beauty of being challenged by the game itself
Can I shape the ball?
Can I affect the trajectory of the ball?
The importance of QUALITY questions
How effective questions can really change your perception of the game
Graeme McDowell once said ‘Questions are indeed the answer’
How good questions can help you to get the best out of your game TODAY
A simple question:
What can I do on this hole TODAY?
The ability to be able to deal with whatever you have today
The skill of ADAPTABILTY
How watching golf on TV can be so misleading and how we can be misled into believing that all bad shots are because our golf swing has changed
Perception and reality
How we can look to TRAIN better for the game
How we can think differently about our own game as a PERSONAL quest to get better
It was wonderful to catch up with Gary and Markus and discuss the concepts in the Lost Art of Golf
Both of these coaches have an absolute WEALTH of knowledge in the game.
Spending time with them is always beneficial
They both get you to THINK
They both get you to look at the game DIFFERENTLY
