“Success depends almost entirely on how effectively you learn to manage the game’s two ultimate adversaries: the course and yourself.” – Jack Nicklaus

 

Golf is one of the most interesting sports in the world. Seemingly simple, it provides an illusion of ease.  Golf is most often practiced in stark contrast to how and where it is played, except at The G2 Academy.

 

The brain and mind are two of the most complicated features of the human system. Learning how to use them to your advantage is essential for achieving your goals and success. Properly preparing for the mental aspects and challenges of the game enables you to perform on the course and in the pressure of competition.

Learn. Apply. Integrate. Engage. Evolve.

 

Learn. G2's mental training program is designed first and foremost to educate:

  • Build self-awareness (for example, mindset, habits of thinking, personality characteristics)

  • Knowledge about the mind and the role it plays in golf performance

  • Themes such as confidence, resilience, emotional intelligence and composure, focus, navigating career transitions, and handling stress and pressure

  • High performance habits and strategies used by the best collegiate and professional athletes in the world (for example, goal setting, routines, self-talk, visualization, and mindfulness)

 

Apply and Integrate. Building on this foundation, athletes have; 

  • The opportunity to practice applying their learning to their golf game.  

  • Integrated mental training as part of their practice and on-course experiences.

  • They develop powerful and effective high performance habits. 

  • Commitment and engagement in deliberate practice.

  • Effectively prepared for pressure and competition.

  • Developed strong self-leadership skills.

 

Engage. Creating an effective team atmosphere is essential for both individual and team sports. In an academy environment, it ensures that each athlete has the ability to perform to and continue to elevate her potential. Further, developing strong teamwork and communication skills will assist the athletes in the future when they play on collegiate golf teams or work with their support teams as professional athletes.

 

Evolve. The G2 mental training program is designed with progression,  giving the students the knowledge and tools they need as they improve their golf. As the athletes evolve so will their mental training ultimately preparing them to own their future on and off the course. 

The mental training program at G2 is designed to provide powerful mindset training geared specifically to young female athletes.

  • Students and athletes attending the camps will experience a combination of

    • engaging and interactive classroom sessions

    • one-on-one mental training sessions 

    • on-course mental game drills and challenges 

    • integration of mental performance into their coaching and on-course experiences.

At G2, we believe in empowering young women to reach and expand their potential.   

 

Though efforts have been made recently to engage more women in golf, the game is still predominantly played by men. For example, in 2015 the breakdown was approximately 75% men versus 25% women in the US.  The G2 Academy aims to change that by providing young women with coaching that is geared towards helping them develop not only their golf games but also strong mindsets and mental game strategies that will serve them well out on the course, as they progress throughout their golf careers, and in life.
