Mastering How You Think, Train, and Perform


SH-Photo 2


As a coach and coaching a team of individuals, I realize the importance of consistency. Not only as a team—but as individuals.   One of the challenging aspects of golf is it’s a self-initiated sport, where the player initiates the action. Players have to control their thoughts before, during, and after the action. More importantly, not let the environment dictate how they think.  It’s the defining factor that allows players and teams to be consistent in competition.  Beyond Sports Psychology, Elite Performance System is achieving mental consistency in an inconsistent environment—such as golf.

History and Snap Shot

Shawn and Lanny Bassham

Lanny Bassham

As a 27 year veteran golf coach and Golf Magazine top 100 teacher, I have taught and championed hundreds of student athletes.  In fact, I had developed what I thought was THE complete training solution to maximize the potential and consistency of young players.

But there was a level of performance I could see in my students that I wasn’t attaining. It is difficult to describe, but there was a remaining element of real championship potential that I couldn’t seem to unlock in them.

Until, I met Olympic gold medalist Lanny Bassham in 2009. Over the next six years I studied daily and side-by-side with Lanny to learn his Olympic training model. Thus mastering how to apply it to the very successful training system that I had independently developed.

Lanny’s Olympic Training Method was THE missing piece I needed to unlock that last bit of potential.  After seven years of assembling and honing, this proprietary and comprehensive training system, it was complete and WORKING.

I started turning out tournament champions CONSISTENTLY.  Players with breadth and depth could now have consistent event performances on a regular basis.  We had solved the riddle!
