One of the top items on every golfer’s bucket
list is to meet the King, Arnold Palmer. Last
month I was able to check that off my personal
list, when I had the distinct pleasure of meeting
the living legend. It was an experience I will
always remember and cherish.
In our discussion, he specifically mentioned
one thing that allowed me to understand the
key ingredient to the success of this living
legend, which I will share momentarily, but
first I want to remind you of the “5 step process
to be 100% READY on Every Shot.”
STOP the ANTs
- ANTS are those
Automatic Negative Thoughts
, and in
order to be 100% READY, you must eliminate
any negative thoughts or negative emotions.
- Pick a Dime Spot Target
- Every shot
has a target and the more specific you are with
it, the better.
- Visualize the Entire Shot
to Finish - I refer to it as watching the entire
movie, and is one of the best ways to commit
to your shot and trust your swing.
– Be 100% READY
- As you walk up to
the ball, all conscious and negative thoughts
are gone. You know what you want to achieve,
and it is now time to execute it.
- Just Swing
- As you are over the ball
feeling 100% READY, it is time to pull the
trigger. Your swing is rehearsed, and it is now
time to let your free-flowing mind create a
free-flowing swing, by thinking about Nothing.
