Hypnosis for golf improvement

I ask every golfer I work with what percentage of their game do they think is mental and what percentage is technical. Invariably, I get a number around 80% as the mental component.

Whether you are an amateur golfer or a pro, the question to ask yourself then is “what percentage of time and resources do I spent on sharpening my mental skills vs my technical skills?”

Would you like to be unaffected by a bad shot? Would you like to stay focused on the course? Would you like to putt with more confidence?

Hypnosis provides effective mental training for golfers. According to this Times magazine article, when Tiger Woods was a teenager, he worked with a hypnotist to help place his mind in the proverbial zone. In fact, the majority of the PGA tour players work with a mental coach.

I won’t go into the details here on how hypnosis work and why it’s effective (you can read the FAQ section of my website or watch my video introduction). Hypnosis is a calm and focused state of mind and it’s also a highly suggestible state of mind. Hypnosis harness the power of your subconscious mind. Because you probably already know that “you should forget about your bad shot, and anchor good shots” or “you should visualize your ball going to exactly where you want” or “pretend every shot is the only shot” etc. But somehow when you are on the course, your mind just doesn’t seem to be able to cooperate.

Sure you can do positive affirmation and visualization in your normal state of awareness. But doing those under the state of hypnosis will be much more powerful because they go directly to your subconscious mind. For example you might affirm: “I am calm and focused on the course”. In your normal state of awareness this statement will be rejected because your critical factor says it’s not true you were not focused on the course. However if this affirmation is done under the state of hypnosis where the critical factor is bypassed, it goes directly into your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind will execute on this new programming and automatically make you calm and focused on the course.

Through the hypnosis mental training, you will learn to visualize your success in a way that is real, you will learn to bring up on command that confident good feeling associated with a good shot, you will train on self-hypnosis to bring your mind instantly to a highly focused and calm state when you are on the course. Hypnosis is not magic, it is a methodical training of the mind to enter the calm and focused state and to program the positive suggestions needed to succeed in golf.

Are you ready to spend more time and resources on the mental side of golf?
