Performance Analysis (Growth Zone)

“A player can become mentally tougher by learning from their experiences. You store your experiences for when you will need them again because the game is a constant learning process. You should learn from your failures as well as successes. Ask yourself what you did or didn’t do right in a situation. Learn from your experiences both positive and negative……Take ownership of your mistakes. Every shot is your responsibility you have to accept the consequences… never make the same mistake twice.” (Tiger Woods, 2007)
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” (Michael Jordan)
“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions – as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.” (Friedrich Nietzsche)

For; Those who are failing to achieve their golfing goals and potential. This may be characterised by a plateau in performance and a lack of progress towards long-term objectives. This method of coaching would also suit those with an inquisitive mind and a passion for learning and developing a deep personal and golf understanding.

Overview; You may think that when the golfing day is over that all is left to do is to is visit the 19th hole and reminisce about the days trials, tribulations and successes.

It is a natural process to replay and look back on what we experienced and yet if we harboured this skill effectively we could improve our performances, take control of own development and achieve our long-term objectives in golf.

However, the period after competing is quite often neglected and forgotten by the less serious golfer and yet it is quite often the missing link in our quest towards achieving long-term goals and fulfilment in golf.

Top athletes, golfers and successful people realise the importance of performance analysis as it is from this process that they can plot the road ahead, grow as people, understand themselves and what they do and improve personal performance.

However, Performance Analysis is a well learned skill and consists of the analysis of 2 key areas. Firstly, Performance Feedback allows you to evaluate the performance of your technical game (long and short game, putting, bunker play etc) whereas Self Reflection allows you to evaluate your own personal performance (I.e. you without a golf club).

Both are critical to your development as a golfer and ultimately it is a process that will determine your future success in golf.
