human skills

We believe in the equation: 
Technical Skills x Human Skills = How Well You Play

A good enough technique is essential to play the game well, but it's insufficient.

Most golfers who want to improve their performance go to the range and work painstakingly on their swings, not realizing it's often their performance state on the course that needs work, not their technique. Simple things such as awareness of your balance, tension, and tempo, as well as the ability to control mental, emotional, and social variables you encounter while playing can quickly take your game to a new performance level. We teach these "human skills" to complement what you do technically so you can play better ON course and be a happier golfer.


PLAY BOX – BE focused!
Every shot requires you to be focused / present / athletic until the end of the motion. No more thinking. The shorter time you need the easier it is under pressure.

THINK BOX – BE decisive!
Every shot requires you to make a decision in a confident way and to trust your decision about the club, shot and your Play Box. Also, to get present and engaged before stepping into the shot.

MEMORY BOX  – BE confident!
For every shot you want to manage what your brain stores as a memory. Be neutral / objective to shots and processes you did not like. Be positive / happy to shots and proceeds that are great / good / good enough. Emotions make memories stick in the brain.

BTT: BALANCE / TEMPO / TENSION AWARENESS – BE athletic!
To make good swings you want your body to be calibrated to an athletic state. Your body varies from day to day, and you always want your balance, tempo and tension levels to be what makes your swing great.

EMOTIONAL RESILIENT  – BE resilient!
As you play your emotional states will vary from excited, nervous, calm, frustrated, confident to anxious. You never know before starting a round how you will be tested. This is about being in charge of your own emotional state and bounce back from any adversity.

MANAGING SELF-TALK – BE mindful!
As you play you will have thousands of thoughts going through your mind. You want to be sure to create a habit of productive ways of talking to yourself, and the ability to quiet your own mind when needed.

MASTER OF VARIABILITY – BE adaptable!
Every day on the golf course will be variable. Consistency is a myth. You want to learn your own common tendencies what you do when playing great and how you get in your own way. Those tendencies can be consistent! By recognizing these tendencies you can start to manage yourself on the course, no matter what happens each day – and you will be a master of your own variability.
