“Mistakes happen.” “Mistakes are a fact of life.” “We all make mistakes.”

Most people generally accept these common sayings as true… except if you’re a golfer!

How many times has your play spiraled downward during a golf game after you made a mistake?

Why does your golf game suffer after a mistake when you know: “Mistakes happen,” “Mistakes are a fact of life,” and “We all make mistakes”?

How to recover from making a bogey or two is a common question that pops up on our golf surveys.

One golfer, who wants help with this issue, wrote about how one mistake can completely ruin his round of golf.

“How do I stop myself from unraveling after a mistake or a bad hole? Somehow, it always seems to happen. I’m playing a great round then one bad bounce, one bad shot, one bad hole on the back nine and it ruins the rest of the round. I want to learn how to get back on track after a bad hole.”

Getting off the bogey train has nothing to with technique, a mistake or the bad shot itself.

It's your thoughts about what happened and your expectations of what is going to happen after the mistake!

Statements such as “unraveling after a bad hole always seem to happen... it ruins the rest of the round” are a self-fulfilling prophecy. It gives you no other way to respond. You already believe you are going to unravel.

Your beliefs or assumptions affect emotions and produce a physiological stress response within your body.

As your thoughts spiral out of control, your emotions run wild, and your physiology is altered, it’s no wonder that your performance suffers and unravels.

Being in command of his thoughts was Nick Taylor’s key to victory at the 2020 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM.

Taylor started the final round with a one-stroke lead and faced some challenges during the final round. For one, Taylor was paired with Phil Mickelson, winner of five Major Championships. Even though the wind picked up, Taylor kept his mind clear to win the tournament by 4-strokes.

There were definitely challenges to be met and distractions to overcome as
Taylor stated after the third round.

TAYLOR: “I’ve just got to do my own thing and try to block all that out.”

Taylor admitted that winning wasn’t easy but he was in charge of his thoughts rather than letting his thoughts control him.

TAYLOR: “Yeah, it was really, really difficult. The wind picked up kind of the end of that front nine, and I was hanging on there, and a few poor drives that I didn't think were too bad but ended up in bad spots and just tried to manage my way from there. And 14's such a difficult hole, once I made double there I had to settle myself down and know that I still had a two-shot lead. And then obviously, chip-in the next hole and get one shot back was massive.”

If unraveling after a mistake is initiated by your thoughts, you can also direct your thoughts to enhance your golf game. The key is to stop buying into the false assumptions and false generalizations that pop up in your mind.

Getting Off the Bogey Train Mindset

Conscious Debate – You can alter the message in your mind by quickly challenging your expectations about how you are playing or scoring.

For example, “Is it always true that one bogey will turn into several?" No, unless you buy into this self-fulfilling prophecy.

One bogey doesn't have to turn into another bogey--unless you make it so. You have to control yourself (emotions) before you can control your golf game!

Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts Inc., announced today that Inbee Park, winner of the LPGA ISPS HANDA Women's Australian Open held at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club in Seaton, South Australia was playing a Graphite Design Tour AD MJ-6 Stiff flex wood shaft in her XXIO Driver.

(My favorite female player and my favorite shaft company)

The champion won her 20th LPGA event by 3 strokes after shooting a 67 - 69 - 68 – 74 during the 4 days of the tournament.

“Congratulations to the winner of the ISPS HANDA Women’s Australian Open. We are excited she plays Graphite Design and is back in the winner’s circle”, stated Wayne Ageno, President, Pro’s Choice Golf Shafts, Inc.

The Tour AD MJ utilizes premium, aerospace quality 50t carbon-fiber materials to provide the best performing shaft available. Designed with a softer tip and stiffer mid to butt section to promote a higher launch condition and low/mid-spin, the Tour AD MJ also utilizes the 3rd generation version of the Toray Nano-alloy material technology known as “DI Technology” in the tip section of the shaft for additional shaft stability, exceptional feel and precise ball control.

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 is 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 institution, whether PGA, LPGA or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module or $2495.00 via the On-Site module. Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations, specifically the PGA and LPGA, could cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

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 members teaching expertise.

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