    Do you need some straight talk about your mental game?  Well, Liam is here to bring the truth about how you can program your mind to eliminate mental interference.

      The language of the subconscious mind is images and feelings

          • Make sure you have no doubt in your mind when you take your shot.

          • Programming is when you’re trying to transfer something from you conscious mind, to the subconscious mind-get a clear image of the shot.

          • Liam’s favorite quote/statement: “Stick to the process, and let the results take care of themselves.”

          • Think Well, Play Great emphasizes the learning aspect-lots of lesson summaries.

          • Lessons that are covered in the program: to lessen mental interference; have a positive and constructive focus; what is an emotional state and how to help get into that state where you can execute better; then focus on developing your player image.

          • Don’t place limitations on yourself or have negative self-talk.

          • Analyze, program, allow: pre shot routine that Liam swears by.

          • In a slump? Maybe it’s just a simple fix. Don’t make any big swing changes.

          • Get technique correct before adding speed.

          • Liam’s book recommendation: “Zen Golf.”

          • Don’t get overwhelmed with new information and tips. Select the things that best apply to your game, and master those fundamentals.

      • The importance of getting your body in the best possible position and have your muscles prepared to swing.

      • How to get the right tension level by squeezing all of your muscles when you breathe in, then blow out and let the muscles go and relax.

      If you're looking for some unique ways to prep for an important round (like a tournament!) you're in luck!  Nick Duffy is here to share how he helps his junior golfers prepare to become elite.

      We can all learn from the experience of junior golfers

      EPISODE FEATURED GUEST: NICK DUFFY

      Nick is a teacher out of the Core Golf Academy at Orange County National in Winter Garden, Florida and he previously taught at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy as well. He’s a PGA Class A member, a TPI level 2 certified, and a participant in two US Junior Championships.

      IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

      • Nick’s favorite quote/mantra: Try to make the best shot you can, instead of trying to steer it away from the trouble and hoping for it to turns out good. If the trouble is really that bad, just play it safe.

      • To always try to do situational practice; practice for what course you’re going to be playing on.

        • If you’re preparing for a tight course play the rough at your regular course as if it were unplayable trouble. Force yourself to pitch out if you land there so you can simulate that tournament course you have on your list.

      • To transition to a more elite level you have to continue to challenge yourself, even if you’re the best in your group.

      • Lots of tips on how to coach and train junior golfers and how to get them to focus.

        • Don’t think where anything is or if you picked the right club-just swing

      • Commit to what you’re doing way before it happens.

        • Make sure all decisions regarding the club selection and type of shot you’ll play are finalized before you address the ball.

      • Instead of being afraid to miss a shot, just hit the shot as best you can. If you miss, miss it because you’re trying to hit it well rather than just trying to get it around the green.

      • Nick’s method of breaking a slump is to address the problem directly and iron it out on the range.

      • The go to drill for Nick is simple 9 to 3 swings, or “power punches” as he calls them.

      • Nick’s parting piece of guidance: Always have a plan. Whether it’s practice or playing, have a specific goal for each activity so you know you get the most out of your time.
