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.
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.
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.
