Conscious v subconscious control of your golf swing

Do you want your next round of golf to be strikingly different? Would you like it to be more fun? Enjoyable? Thought provoking? Educational? You can achieve all of these with my Mental Game Handbook and Scorecard.

The Mental Game Handbook and Scorecard has been crafted to distract destructive conscious thought processes that damage your physical game. By achieving this you liberate the power of your subconscious mind to play your physical game for you.

There is a part of you that knows that to perform to your peak potential you must learn to manage and accommodate your golfing ego. This is exactly what the scorecard does for you. As such the question isn’t “how much does The Mental Game Handbook and Scorecard cost” but “how many shots will it save on my scorecard?”

The seventy pages of the Mental Game Handbook and its accompanying scorecard keeps your conscious mind (golfing ego) busy with tasks that do not damage the physical performance of your game. One such task allocated to your conscious mind is the scoring of the Mental Game Scorecard. You use this scorecard to record how well you believe you are using each of the techniques you are using. As such simply using the scorecard provides an immediate improvement in performance. When thinking about the scorecard, and the techniques you are scoring, your conscious mind is no longer interfering with your swing or performing any of a number of other destructive processes that trigger unwanted emotions.

Framework

What is in The Mental Game Handbook?

The Mental Game Handbook has been written and tested over a period of two years alongside its companion product The Mental Game Scorecard. The scorecard has been designed to record your mental game technique scores in a manner that makes it harder for you to know your gross score during the round, which is a significant mental game benefit in itself.

What do I do?

Prior to each round you select four techniques to support the four phases of every shot you play. The four phases as shown in the diagram above are (i) the pre-shot routine, where your decision making, visualisation and focus are essential. (ii) your golf swing, where your goal is to use the power of your subconscious, free from conscious interference and negative emotions. Immediately after impact comes the (iii) post-shot routine. Lasting only a few moments, this brief phase is vital. It is about post-impact emotional control to enable awareness based feedback of your shot for learning. Finally, the (iv) in-between shot routine is all about getting to your ball in a calm and focused state, free from unwanted thoughts and emotions so that you can begin the sequence again beginning with your pre-shot routine.

At the beginning of each round you choose four techniques from The Mental Game Handbook. This provides one technique to support you in each of the four phases of each shot. The pre-shot routine will need multiple techniques mastering over a period of time to build an effective pre-shot routine from beginning to end, however the other three phases only need one technique at any given time to provide significant benefits. By mastering mental game techniques in all four stages you will experience an immediate improvement in performance, learning and enjoyment.

"I have not come across anything like this. It has helped me completely change my thinking on the golf course and it has reduced my scores and radically reduced my on course stress. My favourite technique is the in-between shot ‘steps’ technique. Simple yet so distracting!!!"

- JACOB SAUNDERS - on The Mental Game Scorecard and Handbook

"Simple to use but lots of choices and techniques. Some may find some a bit odd, but if you stick with it it does work"

- NICK HAMPTON - on The Mental Game Scorecard and Handbook

"Used it three times now. Makes you look at the game very differently, which I found to be a good thing. One or two things starting to appear in my competitive rounds without even thinking about them. Using mainly techniques for pre-shot routine."

- IAN NOVAK - on The Mental Game Scorecard and Handbook

"I bought this having had a coaching session with Tim. He’s passed on some great advice. Whilst I haven’t tried the scorecard fully yet, I did use it on a par 3 whilst on holiday last week and I have to say I’m looking forward to using it properly."

"I guess I was initially sceptical about ‘mental game’ coaching, however my wife bought me The Mental Game Scorecard for my birthday. I used the guidelines (which are good) and yes, it’s improved my game. Tim is right, we do overlook how to learn to do things naturally. Always relying on YouTube or Golf Channel. Nice to take some responsibility for my game. It’s made a difference, in particular my enjoyment levels. My wife now thinks she’s my coach!!"

- Paul Deveraux - on The Mental Game Scorecard and Handbook

"Wow! The distraction technique is fabulous. Even if that’s the only thing I take from this – which I’m sure it won’t be. I’m starting to practice some of the in-between shot routines, as that’s a weakness of mine. I know what he means by the ego."
