” We would accomplish more things if we did not think of them as impossible.”
My Coaching Philosophy:
Coaching is in my opinion about creating an environment that facilitates learning, growth and performance within you,the golfer. This is achieved by use of a holistic and measurable approach to player development where you, the pupil, can take ownership and thus responsibility to guide your own performance through enhanced self awareness.
My belief’s regarding coaching and performance have been shaped by many different people from a variety of fields as well as golf including Psychology, Biomechanics, Skill Acquisition, Motor Learning, Trackman, The Inner Game, Performance Coaching and personal development. This approach has allowed me to develop a player centered approach to coaching where performance and results can be influenced in a number of ways.The diagram below represents the key elements that, when worked on in harmony, lead us toward peak performance and our golfing goals.
So when you look at the critical areas of the game, ask yourself are you working to develop all of these areas or at least those that are most relevant to you at this time? Or do you, like most people spend all of your time in the Technique area where only working on the swing is the answer to all of the games problems? In my work with pupils one of the most important points i stress is which area will offer the greatest return on investment (ROI) of their time so as to reach nearer to their true potential.
