The Anxious Golfer’s Experience with Mindfulness Meditation


71: There are so many times during a round of golf that creates anxiety for us and hinders great play. Have you ever identified your anxiety while on the golf course? How ’bout a 3 foot putt for par? Hitting out of a greenside bunker? First up on the first tee…without warming up? Now compare those shots to how you felt while hitting a ten foot putt for birdie after 2 consecutive pars. It’s amazing how a calm, confident state and being relaxed over the ball will garner More…much better results. Episode #160 of the GOLF SMARTER podcast investigates calmness while on the course and whether it truly makes a difference. Sports Psychology Consultant Ben Kline discusses his study on Mindfulness Meditation and the impact of meditation on golfers to understand whether they reported changes in their feelings of anxiety.
