Kiva Spirit Foundation

Master Golf's Mental Game

An eight week program to:

  • Develop precise control over each drive, approach shot and putt
  • Play at your peak consistently
  • Quiet the "yips" and sink more putts
  • End your pre-game "jitters"

The first session is an introductory session in which includes an explanation of the program and how imagery will work to your advantage. The first session also includes a hypnosis session so that you will understand what it feels like to be in the formal hypnotic state. This session lasts approximately two hours.

Each week of the formal Master Golf's Mental Game program will be a 50 minute session which includes a discussion of your specific needs and a formal imagery/hypnosis experience that will implant that week's lesson.

Each week, here is what you will learn:

Week 1: Prime the inner state of excellence
Establish a peak playing performance anchor that you will use as a foundation for all your shots.
Week 2: Establish specific arousal levels
Develop the exact level of power and precision for the shot you want using a refinement of your peak playing performance anchor introducted in Week 1.
Week 3: Pre-shot success inducing mental sequence
Start each shot with confidence and continue to build on the peak performance techniques.
Week 4: Changing perception of hard/difficult holes
Learn how to change your mind and see holes differently.
Week 5: Changing perception of a difficult shot
If you get a bad lie or a difficult shot, see it differently by changing your mind.
Week 6: Mental zone lock-in for putting
Use your skills to consistantly hit the hole.
Week 7: Pre-game success programming
Prepare for each game by putting yourself in the right frame of mind.
Week 8: Post-game/pre-sleep success impact programming
Reinforce your good play and prepare yourself for future success.
