Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
At shaundevenneygolf we can help you get the most from your game by helping you to understand and learn what your mind should and shouldn't be thinking about before, during and after your shot. Shaun has been fortunate to speak with and learn from some of the best mental coaches in the game. Shaun is a certified mind factor coach gaining certification from Dr Karl Morris who has worked with over 40 PGA tour golfers. He is also currently completing a sports psychology course with Dr Brian Hemmings, another leading golf psychologist. The question I can hear you ask yourself is How can this help my game? Well, let's look at how their knowledge has impacted on the thinking of the best players in the game.
In almost 7 years of work together we covered many areas in my mental game and many of the things worked on were used in the Open at Royal Birkdale to be able to picture myself on the 1st tee in my first major, probably the hardest shot I have ever had to hit mentally. It turned out to be one of my best of the tournament!
The processes which we have built proved to be so effective under pressure in Madeira. Since working with Karl, I have become more aware about the importance of a good routine for every shot and I have learned to accept the inevitable bad breaks that golf can deliver. As a result, I have become less emotional and more rational on the course. This has helped even me out. I look forward to continuing working on my mental game which is just as, if not more, important than the physical game.
