“We are what we repeatedly do.” -Aristotle
Pavlov? That rings a bell. That ever elusive quest for consistency! We are surprising more programed for “repeatability” than you might think. Take note of how consistent you are at sabotaging your golf game:
-Negative self talk/self criticism.
-Too many swing thoughts.
-Letting outside factors and score affect your performance.
-Playing without awareness and swinging with too much tension.
The secret to improving “repeatability” is to re-program your body and mind for better golf. Make your pre-shot routine more affective. Have a purpose when you practice. Manage your Self-Talk and emotions while on the course. Make sure you are working on the right stuff. . .stop wasting time on bad habits and create new and improved muscle memory.
It takes time and discipline, but the long term “repeatability” is well worth it!
