Do You Revert Back To What’s “Comfortable” After Lessons?

Golf Psychology Podcast

Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the “Golfer’s Mental Edge” CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf using golf psychology strategies developed over the last 20 years of his career.

In this week’s golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, answers a question from a golfer who has been taking lessons and working on improving his game. After the lessons, he reverts back to his old swing. He wants to fix it, but he is losing hope.

Perry wrote in and said:

“I’ve been taking lessons from several teachers, I consider my self a good student but somehow a week or two after lessons I tend to go back to what is comfortable because what is taught is not working or developing. I love the game but I don’t think it loves me. As many lessons as I’ve taken my game has not improved. I’m a 15 handicapper and have been for 12 years. I’m about ready to throw in the towel and find a new past-time.”
