Notes from Time Kremer, PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit Presentation -Visionary Peak Performance Consultant
- Pre-existing emotion affects conditioning. What we see is what we already believe to be true. Unless we believe/imagine success, it can’t happen. Change the picture.
- What if every tee shot always went in the hole… it wouldn’t be as challenging. Quantum Physics meets the Law of Attraction. We get what we focus on, not what we want. (I found this to be true the morning after the speech as I was tossing something out in the trash and thought “Wouldn’t it be funny if my key card fell in there at the same time?” and low and behold, it sure did after I had forgotten about that!).
- If it was only physical talent and hard work, golf would be easier. Rearrange your emotional paradigm. Imagine the future as if it’s a done deal. Work out your imagination 5 minutes before you go to sleep and 5 minutes after you sleep (less left-brain awareness/control going on).
- Let things go if it doesn’t feel right. Don’t get so locked into problems that you can’t see the solutions. Shift your focus to what your desire, not what you don’t desire.
- What we believe is what we see. We need to be in positive states of emotion and receptive. Move towards what we want and stop giving energy to what we don’t want. ‘Disemotional energy scale.’ We get sloppy with emotions.
- DETACH (learn to allow/accept), SHIFT (already doing well, move up) and EMBRACE (keep it going)
Notes from Ian Poulter, PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit Presentation…
-PGA Tour Professional & European Tour Professional
- In the 2 weeks before the Ryder Cup, he practiced a total of 15 minutes of putting. He does not like a lot of tweaking, mechanics and high tech. He is a feel player. Ian doesn’t putt to a spot. He putts on a visualized line. He sees the hole in his peripheral vision and sees the line faster when the pressure is on. He stays intense but focuses on the line. During one key putt at the 2012 Ryder Cup, “I felt very, very confident I was going to make it.” He never asked “What happens if I miss?” but instead asked himself “How crazy will my teammates be when I make it?” Many golfers don’t want to feel the pressure. You have to want that position. He knows he’ll never miss a 3’ putt!
- Ian works on different shots at the range and in short game practice. All games and challenges, less mechanics. Betting is good and one-on-one is the best.
- A great amount of respect goes to Ian for his clothing line, his interest in growing the game through youth golf and his genuine and honest attitude about life
