YEAR 12 HPE - SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

Mike Margolies's curator insight, May 20, 2013 1:07 PM

Want to scare golfers. Two words, YIPS and Shanks. The thing is both issues can be helped. Takes some mental training though and that seems to be the issue. Why mentally train for a mechanical issue. Seems that has been the message for generations of golfers. Hit more puts, spend more time on the driving range. It's mechanical. Better technique, better results. Just ask Charles Barkley. Er maybe that's a bad idea.

Athletes need to spend time on their mental toughness as well as muscle memory. Visualization of the critical moments in a game and seeing the ball go where it's intended. a sport psychologist can help.
