Do you know what your golf personality is? There are six dominant types that I’ve encountered over the years.
From an outside perspective, they all appear to have merit. But there are some serious downsides to seemingly good ones that may surprise you.
That’s why in this episode, I reveal the pros and cons of the six dominant golf personalities and the reason why there is only one that I teach my clients to adopt.
Here’s how this episode plays out…
- [03:40] #1 – The Worker Bee – This persona is just as the name implies, centered around constantly working hard on your game. While you may think this is good, there are downsides to working hard.
- [06:17] #2 – The Socialite – This may be your personality type if you love to be at the center of the fun and enjoy the casual and social side of golf. But have you considered how being so wrapped up in the social side of golf might be impacting your performance?
- [08:27] #3 – The Defender – If you make a point to know where the trouble is on a hole, where you’ve had issues in the past, or where it might be okay to miss then you’re playing like a Defender. But knowing where the trouble lies simply makes trouble spots possible targets.
-  #4 – The Historian – This may be your golf personality if you get wrapped up in reminiscing about the past, the glory days, the game, swing, or distance you once had and wish you still had today. Learn how measuring your present game on the past can diminish your confidence.
- [13:50] #5 – The Fixer – If you get consumed by learning everything you can about your swing from a multitude of sources then you are likely a Fixer. Discover how this approach can inhibit your ability to trust your swing.
- [18:45] #6 – The Scholar – See why this is the only golf personality I teach my clients to adopt and how it encompasses the best of all the personality types in one.
