Here’s a new video for you; this time it’s all about “the ONE Thing” that you can do to improve your golf performance.
As an interesting synchronicity, this one thing is something that Roger Federer, who’s recently won a record 8th Wimbledon Men’s Singles Championship title, has been practising for years.
Studies of Federer’s game have shown that he waits the longest time possible before committing to a returning shot. When his opponents are already deciding what to do, how to react and which shot to play when the ball is still 20 feet away, Federer simply waits and waits until the last moment before deciding upon and committing to the shot he wants to take, at which point he usually wrong-foots his opponent and takes the point.
Now I know tennis is a game of reacting to a moving ball while the golf shot always begins from stillness, but what I’m talking about here is what’s going on in the mind of champion athletes, whatever the sport…and that’s very little in the way of mental interference.
Enjoy the video and as always, I look forward to your comments and questions.
