PostSubject: The Mind Factor Course   Sat Oct 08, 2011 3:18 pm

read this and am wondering if any of you guys have undergone some Mental coaching too???

The Mind Factor Course

Golfers are beginning to understand the power of the mind and in a few weeks time golfers of all standards will have the opportunity to spend three days with the man who has mind-coached many of the recent major champions.


The 2011 Mind Factor Course is fast approaching, taking place this year from 18-20th November in Central Manchester, and is your chance to spend to spend three days in an interactive learning environment with renowned Golf Mind coach Karl Morris.

Karl is well respected in the game and lists four major winners - 2011 Open Champion Darren Clarke, 2011 US Masters Champion Charl Schwartzel, 2010 US Open Champion Graeme McDowell & 2010 Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen - amongst his recent clients plus former world number one Lee Westwood, to name just a few.

And whilst his work with the top pros is well known, Karl has spent years delivering successful mind training to golfers of all levels. No matter whether you're a pro or keen amateur, attendance on the course will arm you with practical, mental game tools that are guaranteed to help your game.

Whether golf is your profession or passion, the course delivers three great days of entertaining learning with several inspirational speakers each day who will give you food for thought on how to think differently, before, during and after golf and will provide inspiration not only for your golf game, but also other important sectors of your life, such as business.

In order to maintain the exclusive benefits of the course it is held only once each year and for individuals who have previously attended the Mind Factor Course (including 2011 attendees) there is now the exciting chance to partake in the Masters Course on the 22nd & 23rd November, where your learning will be taken to an altogether new level.

Throughout the experience Karl works closely with all individuals to give them time and attention when they need it.

Attendees will learn throughout the three days just how much we tend to be stuck in our own limiting patterns of behaviour and how strong the pull of familiarity is.

However, the course will arm attendees with the tools to effectively tackle the change process along with many other new skills. The engaging, interactive exercises provide practical experience you can take back into your life.

Once complete the course qualifies participants as Certified MIND FACTOR Coaches.

his allows them to put their investment to great use and use their new skills either in current coaching or new opportunities to share their knowledge in the game.

Mind Factor will help promote qualified Mind Factor coaches on www.golf-brain.com, giving attendees a great start and generating both awareness and potentially income.

The Mind Factor course is a unique event in golf,

The usual price is £999+VAT, but if you book online at www.golf-brain.com you get the special price of £699+VAT (price freeze from 2010). Mention Golf365.com whilst booking for a further and exclusive £100 discount (only applicable for bookings made by 7th October).

If intensity is required, then the Masters immediately follows the live course on 22 & 23rd November. The Masters RRP is £299.00+VAT. If you sign up for the Masters at the same time as signing up for the live course, you receive an automatic reduced rate of £199+VAT.

For further details please contact nick@golf-brain.com or to book call 01925 764053. We hope to have the pleasure of your company in November; it could just be the most rewarding golf break you've ever been on.

I liked to add some more write up about this topic....

Golf: Mindset Makes All The Difference

There is a mental side to the game of golf which will always attack your nerves and exploit your imagination if you allow it to.

Various estimates of the extent to which golf is mental as distinct from the purely physical have been expounded in locker-room and in print. Some pundits, amateur and professional, have even maintained that golf is as much as seventy-five per cent mental.

I do not propose to venture an opinion on a matter which must vary according to the make-up and the outlook of the individual. But of this I am convinced. No game throws out a stronger challenge to the temperament of the player. Some face this challenge and beat it, but others never quite come to master their emotions and in consequence never achieve all of which they are capable.

X may have a fine method but a suspect temperament. Y may be ideally equipped temperamentally but his technique will show obvious flaws. Both X and Y will meet with a certain degree of success, but neither will attain the standard which could have been his if he had overcome his weaknesses, of temperament in the case of X, of technique in the case of Y.

The instructor, like the doctor, can only prescribe so far. Just as the doctor must have the co-operation and the will to get well of his patient, so the golf instructor requires perseverance and determined effort on the part of his pupil.

The teacher of golf can do best for his pupil by helping him to acquire a sound and lasting method, making sure that he understands what he is trying to do and why and warning him against allowing other considerations, temptations and fears to encroach upon the overall objective of reproducing the shaped swing and the timed delivery which, unaided, will do all that can possibly be done in dispatching the ball from point A to point B.

That is why I set out to equip a pupil with a shaped swing and a good delivery, a technique which will give him full confidence as soon as he steps up to the ball if only he will realize it.

The top players put their trust in their swing, particularly the great ones. It is true that when that swing is not working at its best they have to buckle down to "scrambling" their figures, but no one knows better than they themselves that they cannot "scramble" indefinitely. Maybe they will get by for one round or part of a round in a 7 2-hole tournament but they must get it working smoothly again without delay if they are to stay in the race.

The bad and the indifferent shots, the unexpected thrusts of a match-play opponent, are bound to come in the course of a round. One's reflexes will inevitably play tricks now and again. But the hole you have just played is done with. Another hole, with a fresh challenge, awaits you on the next tee. Go to meet it in the right frame of mind, or it is odds on your dropping another stroke perhaps more.

Always your refuge, when the imagination threatens to overcome self-discipline and when you feel the tension mounting, is the picture of the shape of the swing which you have stored in your mind. Only through this mental picture can you feel and sense the position of the club head at the various stages of the movement.

The more you can discipline yourself to do this and keep doing it in spite of all distractions and changing circumstances the more natural it will become, both physically and mentally. The intention is formed in the mind. The muscles must be trained to obey, not to take charge.

I repeat once again.

Your swing and the delivery you have fitted into it will do all that can possibly be done to give you YOUR peak performance. You cannot augment it in any way, but you can quickly turn the chance of success into failure by "thinking" a vague something else into the operation. Likewise, a positive approach can quickly change failure into success. Good luck!

Mindset matters when making putting changes


This week I am checking in from Midland, Texas, at the WNB Golf Classic on the Nationwide Tour. I have several students out on the Nationwide including Matthew Goggin [pictured], Matt Weibring, Matt Every and Danny Lee so I try to get out to at least three or four events every year.

During tournament weeks, the mindset of my Tour pro students falls into one of two camps. I have named these mindsets “preservation” and “improvement.” (For the record, there is a third mindset that I refer to as “Leave me alone, Marius! I am putting great,” but that does not really need to be discussed.)

In “preservation” mode, the player is comfortable with his current putting stroke and is seeking my advice as merely an avenue to boost their current confidence or possibly looking for a small swing thought or putting trigger to help them continue to roll their putts well. In “improvement” mode, the player is willing to make changes because what they are currently doing or feeling with the putter is not correct.

On Tuesday, I spent some time with Will Claxton addressing a putter-path issue that was significant enough for Will to ask my advice. Will was cutting across the ball, which makes it very difficult to be a consistently good putter. We worked to get Will to feel more like he was hooking his putts, which he was able to do in a relatively short period of time.

I understand many of you will read this and think, “Thanks for writing about the obvious, Marius.” OK, but stop and think about your own game. I know that many of you have been struggling with your game as you were about to play in your club championship or maybe a state tournament. So what should you do? Well, most of you will reach out to your local PGA professional, which is what I would recommend 100 out of a 100 times, BUT only if you approach that lesson with the correct mindset.

What do I mean by “correct mindset”? Evaluate the severity of your current level of struggle. This is the time to be honest with yourself. If you are a good player who is maybe missing more fairways to the left than normal, approach your PGA professional with a “preservation” mindset. That means you aren’t making a major change but something simple, such as weakening your grip or maybe changing your alignment. These changes can be made without damaging your confidence.

On the other hand, if you are struggling greatly with your putting before a big event, you need to decide whether you have enough time to feel comfortable playing under pressure after making a major technical change. If you are certain that a change must be made to give yourself the best chance to succeed, then approach your change under an “improvement” mindset.

Thanks for all the emails, folks. Please keep them coming to blog@mariusgolf.com. Also, you have only a couple more weeks to order the Automatic Putting Package for the promotional rate of $59.95. After Oct. 15, it will return to $99.95. Please visit mariusgolf.com for more details.

Until next time…cheers!
