GSfMO#260
Jon Adler is a performance coach focused on working with golfers and executives. He says that we need to get our mind right and let our bodies swing the club. We spend an too much time focusing on correcting our swing during a round, but not correcting our mind, which can make us feel frustrated because we can't figure a solution. He offers a 12 question survey on his site that will get you thinking about your game in new ways even before you analyze the answers. http://www.golfisamindgame.com/competition.asp
