649: Jon Stabler and his partner at GolfPsych.com have conducted comprehensive personality assessments of more than 400 Tour players and have come up with a report and book they call “The 8 Traits of Champion Golfers: How to Develop the Mental Game of a Pro”. 21 of their clients have combined for 31 Major victories and Jon tells about shares the path to success for those players, including Gary McCord. As they say on their website, “Golf is a unique blend of physical skill and mental fortitude. Swing training and short game training can only get you so far.” This is a longer than usual episode at about an hour, but I’m confident that you will get tremendous value from his insights.
