IJGT Mental Training Series
The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) is proud to announce the 2013 Spring Events schedule for the IJGT Mental Training program.
IJGT Mental Training assists members, regardless of their current ability or skill level, to improve themselves on and off the golf course by working on the mental aspect of competitive golf. Mental Training assists athletes in developing a mindset of continuous improvement that will allow participants to maximize their athletic potential by increasing their effort and energy in training and competition.
Our Assistant Director of Mental Training, Scott Swainston, will be on-site at three IJGT Events during the Spring season. At each of the Events, he will be available for Personalized Mental Training Packages. These packages include a practice round session to prepare for the weekend, tournament observation session (including 30 minute post round session), and end with a post event session on Sunday. In each of these sessions Swainston will work with athletes on four key themes of improvement: developing true confidence, controlling attention, understanding and effectively managing emotions, and maintaining motivation throughout the development process.
