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.
