Jon Adler Masterclass - Golf Psychology: When Positive Thinking Doesn't Work
Do you struggle to play your best golf in competitions? Perhaps it was your mind that got in the way and caused that poor swing or poor performance. Do you always look to your swing mechanics for the answers?
It is like losing your keys in the basement and looking for them upstairs because the light is better.
Jon Adler delivers the only practical Mental Game Coaching in the UK.
On the practice ground, the putting green and the golf course you will learn from your own experience how to understand why you get so frustrated when you play, discover how you get in your own way, understand how anxiety affects your game, how to concentrate under pressure, learn how to practice effectively and take it to the course, develop trust and confidence, how to develop confidence on the putting green and over chip shots , and how to play your best golf when it matters.
Jon began working as a Executive Performance Coach in 2001 and took up golf as a hobby soon afterwards. It was his inconsistency in golf that led to Jon moving away from the Positive Thinking approach favored by virtually all of the Golf Psychologists in this field and he founded Golf is a Mind Game, a Performance Coaching Company in Bournemouth U.K. Developing an approach based on Mindfulness, Jon discovered a way of Performing and Coaching that has proved to be as popular with Touring Professionals as it is with Amateur golfers. Encouraging golfers to develop their ability to master the skill of Relaxed Concentration, this very practical style of Mental Coaching has to be experienced to be fully understood.
Jon has worked with golfers on The European Tour, The Challenge Tour and The Seniors Tour as well as countless amateurs. They all shared a similar goal, to play their best golf when it matters.
Jon continues to play golf and uses his coaching techniques in his own game. In 2009 He won the Bournemouth Open, the only 72 Hole Amateur Handicapped Competition in the UK – and then defended it in 2010 – a feat that has never been witnessed before in the competitions 59 year history.
