Why thinking positively may NOT be helping your golf game
Golf is full of variety, and given that no two shots experienced are the same, there is a clear need to possess an ability to adapt to each situation presented. Be it our swing, our approach, or our mindset, we must adapt.
The benefits of thinking clearly
To better understand the benefits to thinking clearly, Think Clearly Golf has teamed up with Tom Davies, a PGA Advanced Professional, coach educator and researcher. Tom holds a masters degree in Sports Coaching and PhD in Sport Psychology and has kindly offered some insight into his research, and suggests different ways you can think clearly more often.

Pay attention to the details that matter: How to improve your focus
How many times have you focussed so hard on the line of a putt, that when it comes to hitting it, you get the weight of the putt wrong and end up missing it?
