A Week In The Life Of A Black Belt Golfer; The Golf AM Tour Nationals – 2013

Posted by on Oct 2, 2013 in Blog, Golf Tournament | 0 comments

This past week I played in the Golf AM Tour Nationals. I thought it would be useful to my readers to share my experiences of the past week here, and the lessons that it taught me. Day 1: Leading up to the tournament’s first round I was very anxious, worried, and nervous about how the first round would go for me. The funny thing was, in the days leading up to the tournament I had good practice sessions and rounds, but a couple of days before Sunday, I felt my...

In my last blog, I talked about how to play golf with limited time. Today I offer some guidance on playing golf when your limited resource is money. For many of the clients I work with, and most others in the golfing world, this problem is not much of an issue. However, there are others, especially younger players just starting out, for whom the cost involved in playing golf can seem like a barrier to entry into the game.

A colleague of mine recently posed a question to me about one of the current great golf professionals, Sergio Garcia, and why he had the lead going into the final round but did not win. He actually wound up 5 shots out of the lead when the final round was over.

Overcome Your Biggest Challenges With A Black Belt Golf Mindset

Posted by on Sep 2, 2013 in Blog, Golf Psychology, Playing Golf | 0 comments

Today was one of my most challenging days as a golfer. Yesterday was day 1 of a 2 day event. I was hitting the ball well, and even though the putts were not falling I felt good about my game. Having been in competitive golf now for around 2 years, I have come to realize that it can be challenging for me to finish well in my events. The challenge comes from a lack of focus on staying in the moment, trusting my own ability and really believing in myself. So, back to today; I...

The question “how to play golf?” is such a challenging one, that a whole book could be written about this subject.  There are so many different ways to play the game.  For starters, you can play the game left handed like Phil Michelson, or right handed like Jack Nicklaus. I think the most important question to focus on is “how do I play the game of golf to the best of my ability?”; this is where the Black Belt Golf mentality comes in to help you...
