PNW PGA “Stay Involved” Education presented by Rick Heard – Golf MasterMind @ Online
Nov 10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Golf MasterMind – Integrating Mental and Physical Coaching In Your Teaching Business

Join us for a one-hour webinar presented by Rick Heard. The Golf Mastermind system is an innovative approach that combines physical golf skills with inner mental and emotional abilities to help golfers improve. “The Golf MasterMind” is a practical guide that brings the outer physical golf game and the inner mental and emotional abilities together to help golfers reach their potential. The goal of the Golf MasterMind approach is to reduce the “gap” between potential scores (determined by physical golf skills) and actual scores (determined by how those physical skills are applied on the course). The premise is that in order to lower your golf scores, you must have five things:

  1. You must really want to do it, and you must not give up in the face of inevitable challenges and setbacks (MOTIVATION).
  2. You must be able to do it; that is, your skills and abilities must be at a level to support your dreams and goals (ABILITY).
  3. You must use your skills and abilities effectively (STRATEGY).
  4. You must apply yourself and care about the result (FOCUS).
  5. You must believe that you can do it (CONFIDENCE).

“The Golf MasterMind” addresses each of these levels in detail, and provides a way to measure your performance so that you can track your progress as you improve. “The Golf MasterMind” is for every level of golfer, and covers mental toughness, the focus switch, managing emotions, and optimizing your playing strategy so that you can play your best, regardless of your physical skills.
