7 Reasons Why Golfers Should Visualise

7 Reasons Why Golfers Should Visualise

By working with David Charlton, you and your organisation will be better equipped to rise to modern day challenges and better informed to thrive on and off the pitch, course or court.  Where he inspires individuals and teams to:

  • Cope with pressure and challenges more effectively
  • Maintain positive mental health
  • Compete with confidence more often
  • Manage your emotions better
  • Improve your commitments levels

David is a Mental Toughness Practitioner, as well as a Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC) Registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.  He has successfully supported athletes, teams and organisations for over 10 years in order to ensure that they perform at their maximum more often.

He has a comprehensive knowledge around the development of Mental Toughness, a plastic personality trait, which determines or limits people to deal effectively with change, challenges and stressors.  In today’s climate, during the Coronavirus pandemic this quality is becoming more and more valuable to individuals, teams and organisations. 

In today’s episode I answer a popular question I get asked from golfers.   “I struggle with my confidence, overthink and can be indecisive on the golf course how can I put this to one side and play my best golf more often?” 

You’ll find I share an important tool to help in this regard, visualisation, and sell the benefits of using this psychological skill to help you shoot lower scores.

Key Learning Points:

  1. Visualisation helps you develop your skills.
  2. Imagery, otherwise known as visualisation can help you the golfer overcome obstacles in your path.
  3. By visualising you will find that you are calmer under pressure.
  4. Imagery will assist you to feel more confident in your skills when it matters.
  5. Visualisation can sharpen your focus.
  6. You can see yourself eager and energised.
  7. Imagery is a great way to help you stay present in the moment.
