Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the "Golfer's Mental Edge" CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf.
Believe it or not, your preshot routine is very important to shot making and consistency. But guess what? Far too many golfers just go through the motions physically without mental focus.
Here’s the thing: You really don’t have a preshot routine if you perform your routine mindlessly without mental focus.
Now let’s suppose that you take physical steps to prepare for a shot such as a practice swing, set up, etc. This is a good start, but not the whole ball of wax.
The reality is the physical part of your routine is only one facet to a good preshot routine…
That’s why your mental routine is the most important part of your preshot preparation, but so easy to neglect for most golfers. Get this: your mind controls your body. Your thoughts and images trigger a good swing.
OK, if you want to discover three critical mental strategies you must have in your preshot routine, watch my new golf confidence video. Check out my new golf psychology video to learn the three mental components of a good preshot routine.

Do you get upset with poor shots and your frustration causes more mistakes that leads to a string of bogeys?
Many of my students struggle with their composure after hitting bad shots.
Hitting a bad shot is not what's costly to your score… A poor reaction to a bad shot is costly because it can lead to more mistakes - due to frustration – and then "riding the bogey train!”
You want to let go of poor shots quickly so they don"t compound into more bad shots.
You’ll learn a couple strategies I teach my students to move on after poor shots. Check it out if you want to avoid the bogey train after mistakes.
My new mental game program for golfers titled, “The Golfer’s Mental Edge,” will be available next Thursday. I wanted to share a few details…
Using the 8 CDs and a workbook, you’re taken through my top 8 sessions I do with my personal golf students…
I’ve also decided that the first 10 people to grab by new program will get my GMAP assessment and personal mental game plan prescription. I’ll have more details next week.

Dr. Patrick Cohn, author of The Mental Game of Golf, Going Low, and The Mental Art of Putting, teaches golfers - of all levels - how improve their inner game of golf.
In this week's golf psychology video cast, mental game of golf expert Dr. Cohn helps golfers focus on the target instead of the trouble.
Do you focus on where not to hit the ball? I know many of my students focus too much on where not to hit the ball…
"Don't miss the green and have a tough up and down,” you might be thinking. If you do this, you focus too much on avoiding mistakes or have an avoidance mindset.
You can"t play your best when you think about NOT hitting bad shots. You’ll tighten up and steer the shot away from the trouble. You have to focus on where you want to hit the ball.
I just posted a new golf confidence video to help you do just that...You'll find out if have an avoidance mindset and how to have a success-driven mindset.
