Post How To Get Your Head Around Learning Golf
How To Get Your Head Around Learning Golf
by: Steven Latham

So you've thought about playing golf or you already golf? Fantastic! How do you get your head around learning the game?

To begin, I intend on making something crystal clear: every golfer, even elite golfers were at one-stage beginners! Every golfer at the beginning stages of their learning were interested in getting the ball in the air. Regardless of your current stage of development you can and will improve!

As a Golf Psychology Coach, I work with golfers of varying standards from total beginners through to tournament Professionals and Coaches. What I can tell from my experience is that the most important factor in determining a golfers likelihood of continual improvement is their ATTITUDE TO LEARNING GOLF!

It's vital that you empower yourself with useful beliefs about your ability to learn golf. For example, a beginner needs to believe that golf is both a fun and easy game to learn. Despite some coaches not believing this, there are golf coaches like myself who believe this whole heartily. As someone who has played at an elite level (collegiate golf) and studied extensively, I can tell you that it is an EASY GAME. If you keep things simple and back your belief to learn the game you will improve!

It is your responsibility as a golfing student to seek out the guidance of coaches with empowering beliefs about your potential to learn and improve. Not doing this would be like having surgery from a doctor who didn't think the operation would be successful, there's no way you would do that with your body right? Nor should you do that with your golf.

Raise your standards for golf instruction; make a decision for yourself that you will only seek out instruction from those coaches who are qualified, credible and resourced with empowering beliefs about your ability to improve.
