"I believe in Jennifer Munro's approach to the mental and emotional side of golf so much that I encourage all the PGA Tour professionals I work with to take the profile test and to work with Jennifer's analysis to improve their response to the pressures and stress of tournament golf. It has produced great results. I never bought into the "one size fits all" approach that is currently peddled such as "relax, visualize, pre-shot routine, etc.". They can help some, but I believe actually harm others who try them. The approach to handling the intense pressure of tournament golf must be tailored to the individual's personality. With out understanding the personality factor, any suggestions on how to handle stress is like throwing a dart at the wall. "
"The Golf Mind Rx profile is a sophisticated yet common sense approach to learn about your personality traits and how they affect your game. I completed the profile and the results had me pegged right down to the color of the socks I prefer!"
ON THE GOLF COURSE
By: Jennifer Munro
Golf courses are designed with hazards and obstacles to make them more challenging. As we master fundamentals, we try to work more on “trouble shots” to minimize our losses when we encounter these obstacles. Although we all know there is a very large mental component to playing golf, few golfers spend enough time on their mental trouble shots, or become familiar with their personal Mind Traps.
Personal temperament determines which specific Mind Traps will plague
us most as individuals. While the mind can be very complex, most of us
fall into fairly simple and predictable patterns of what distracts and
deters us from playing the game to our own personal best potential. GolfMindRx,
Inc. identifies four Mind Trap buckets that correspond to four primary
Golfer Types: The Challenger, Social, Traditional and Technical.
Mind Trap #1 – It is all about winning and control!
The Challenger Golfer is typically a person who will fall into this Mind Trap. With a strong dominance trait in their personality makeup, they thrive when they are in control of all major aspects of their lives. This includes the golf course. They play best when there is challenge from the course, or from strong competitors, or both. They are focused and purposeful until they fall into their Mind Trap.Challenger Mind Traps
Mind Trap #2 – It is all about relationships and fun!
Mind Trap #3 – It is all about Practice and Respect!
The Traditional Golfer is most likely to be troubled by this one. Their highest traits are patience, steadiness and persistence. They thrive when they have plenty of time to prepare, practice and master their routine. They are most comfortable with traditional views and techniques and might prefer practice to playing. They remain internally focused unless there are obvious distractions they find uncomfortable around them.
Mind Trap #4 – It is all about Perfection and Discipline!
The Technical Golfer is challenged by this Mind Trap. Their highest traits
center on conformity, or adherence to systems, processes and perfection. They
believe in mastering the process and maintaining strict discipline to reach
mastery of their game.
Once you understand your primary Golfer Type and recognize the Mind Trap associated
with your temperament, you are well on your way to understanding why you don’t
always do what you intended to do on the golf course. To get an in depth understanding
