Whether Golf is more ‘Mental or Physical’ has been debated for as long as I’ve been around the game … and started well before I stepped on this planet.
Is one more important than the other … or is it a balance that creates a consistent golf swing?
When one’s mind isn’t clear … it’s difficult to sync up the physical movements in your golf swing. So, perhaps … your golf swing starts in your mind … yet, the limitations of your body (physical) sends signals back to the brain saying whether it can or can’t do what you’re asking for. With the brain then coming up with a ‘McGyver’ type of compensation to make up for your physical limitations.
Thus, a lack of consistency! As it takes incredible skill to be repeatedly consistent while managing multiple compensations in your golf swing.
This week’s video will introduce you to the Anxiety Scale … and how understanding the scale can help you to better balance the Mental and Physical to play a more consistent game on the golf course.
