Improve Your Game With Mental Golf Tips

By Cathy Mercer

You are probably someone who is passionate about golf. You work hard on the drive, practise your putt and know everything you have to do. However something is holding you back and it is not necessarily physical. With these mental golf tips you can develop your game without having to get your clubs out!

One big aspect you may not have considered is nutrition. Studies have shown that not eating or drinking in the right way can affect concentration and this is equally true for athletes as it is for children in school or indeed anyone wanting to engage in any activity. It is recommended you eat a light meal roughly two meals before playing as this will help you concentrate.

The reason for this is that it can result in an emotional vicious cycle that can be very difficult to break, even for experienced professionals which is why they often need to consult sports psychologists. The reason for this is simple. You start taking each missed shot personally. As you work harder to avoid these mistakes you find yourself getting more annoyed as they keep happening. The key is to calm down and realise that this approach will not get results, especially not in the long term.

Another thing to think about is how you approach the game. A lot of people focus on their scores and how to keep it as low as possible. The problem is that this can become obsessive. A better long term approach is to look at how you swing, how you putt and so forth.

However this does not mean that you treat the game flippantly. The positive approach is about working on improving your abilities without worrying too much about the result. It is about stepping back and looking at your swing, putting and so on. As you develop more you will become more confident and the results will soon reflect that.

This also includes what you do before you go on the course. A light meal around two hours before you tee off can make it easier to concentrate. Slow release energy foods such as oatmeal work best as this gives you a consistent amount of energy. This is as opposed to high sugar junk foods or caffeine as these give you a short term boost followed by a crash.

Remember that this is not the same as not taking it seriously. You should not strive to be bad or mess about. It is about always wanting to do better and develop but without feeling that everything is going to go wrong if you do not always do better or if you are unable to beat everyone.

Of course one of the best mental golf tips is to get the best help. When you go to a driving range or a course do not be afraid to ask for people to look at your swing. Getting the right advice can help you change your mental response to improve your game and generally make it more enjoyable!
