Most professional golfers now have a mental coach as well as a swing coach. Even those that don't have a specific "mind guru" work on their mental strength and are conscious of the need to develop it. How often does the amateur actively learn about these techniques that the top pros are using to such great effect? Little, if ever!

The mental side of golf is still relatively unexplored compared to traditional golf instruction. Developments in golf swing technique are reaching a point of diminishing returns. The inner game with r11 irons, on the other hand, is the place where more and more golfers are finding their source of rapid and significant improvement.

The biggest difference between champion golfers and the average player is the way they think. There is absolutely no reason why the amateur golfer cannot benefit from the very same exercises, ideas and philosophies that work so well for the top golfers who play with r11 irons. They are used by top athletes in every sport and some of the principles are even followed by the most successful business people and leaders in all walks of life. So that raises the question, what is it that the pro golfers are doing that the amateur golfer isn't?

Well, for one thing, mentally trained golfers set themselves up to win on the golf course whilst club golfers, more often than not, set themselves up to fail with taylormade r11 irons. The average golfer will focus on what he doesn't want to happen whilst the tour pro knows he has to focus solely on his target. Mentally tough players know how to channel the power of their subconscious mind to help them on the course.

The club golfer does not understand the power of his subconscious mind and will probably be programming it negatively. It is only when you start to see yourself as a better golfer than you currently are that you will begin to play better golf. You can create a better self image by simply taking 5 or 10 minutes out of each day to visualize yourself playing good golf with taylormade r11 irons.

Simply think back to your best ever round of golf. Recreate the feelings you had then. See what you saw, hear what you heard. Make it as vivid as you possibly can. It will feel like you are back in that moment and you will feel great. This is a very healthy thing to do.
