By PGTAA member Dr. Patrick CohnDo you compare yourself to other golfers you play? Have you caught yourself thinking,"I can't drive the ball as far as that golfer," "My rival has such a better short game than I do." or"My friend is a much better golfer than me." If comparison thoughts cross your mind, welcome to the comparison trap. The comparison trap is a great hazard you will face as a golfer. When you compare yourself to others, you look for all the reasons you are not good enough. You look for all the aspects of your game that are lacking and your confidence takes a big hit. When your confidence is low, it shows up in your game, leading to even lower confidence. You become trapped in this cycle because you are focused on the performance or abilities of other golfers. The solution to the comparison trap is to focus on your game: Find ways to improve the weak parts of your game. If your long game needs improvement, take extra time to work on your technique in the driving range. Look for ways to build your physical strength. Take notice of your strengths. What aspects of your game are positive? Every golfer has strengths. Finding the positive aspects of your game builds confidence. Compare your game to how you played in the past. Self-comparison is an effective strategy to keep improving your game. Recognize your growth. Be proud of how far you have come in the sport. You worked hard to develop your game. You deserve the credit. A little bit of credit goes a long way and keeps you motivated to progress further. Celebrate your successes. Your successes were a result of your efforts. Never trivialize your accomplishments. When you focus on your game, you fuel your confidence, motivation and desire to work hard.After winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, his fourth PGA Tour title, Daniel Berger commented on his view of being underrated. BERGER: "I do feel like I'm underrated, but that's okay with me. I just think its put a little chip on my shoulder, which is totally fine." For Berger, being overlooked fuels motivation, motivation fuels work, work fuels preparation and preparation fuels confidence. BERGER: "I've set some really high goals. I'm not scared to put in the work. I'm not the most talented guy out here. I don't hit it the farthest, but I'll outwork anybody. So I think, that is my biggest weapon." To maintain stable and high confidence, compare yourself to yourself using your past performances. Give yourself credit for your successes and work hard to improve aspects of your game that need to be further developed. Always keep the focus on you. Avoiding the Comparison Trap: Start recognizing your strengths and successes. Most golfers dissect their game and point out every mistake and bad shot after a round. To combat this, buy a notebook and write down your strengths and successes after each round. No success is too small. Then, focus on what you want to improve for the next week or practice.www.peaksports.com ... See MoreSee Less

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market are that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry.

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institutions, whether the PGA, LPGA, or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module.

Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations, specifically the PGA and LPGA, could cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Additionally, contrary to what any of these alternate “schools” tell you, ONE CANNOT BECOME A PROFESSIONAL GOLF TEACHER IN A 5-DAY SCHOOL NO MORE THAN YOU CAN BECOME A DENTIST, PLUMBER ELECTRICIAN OR ANY OTHER PROFESSION. The theoretical foundation requires studying. At the PGTAA, our written manuals exceed 700 pages and include a DVD of all the key points of teaching and playing golf.

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA, and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our member’s teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at PGTAA.com.
