Runnin' on Empty?
The Mental Game is Authored by Michael Riggs
Are you aware that your brain, when in an intensely concentrated state, burns over 33% of the body’s available energy?
With this fact in mind, you should begin to consider ways to save mental energy and develop strategies to reduce the strain on your brain during a round of golf.
Consider this metaphor – you’re in your car waiting at a stoplight for the light to turn green, but instead of gently idling to keep your engine at a very low rpm, you put your left foot on the break and push your right foot on the gas pedal simultaneously. Your engine begins wail away. Your car wants to lunge forward but is held back because your breaks are applied.
What Should I Say When Calling a Coach to Decline a College Offer?
Article by Coach Brooks
The great news is you have multiple offers to attend various colleges and participate on their respective golf teams, potentially as a scholarship student-athlete. But now you have to decide which school is best for you, and then you have to let the other coaches know you will not be accepting their offers. This sounds like a tough call to make, but in reality, it is something coaches hear frequently, and in most cases, the call goes extremely well.
First, once you have made a college decision and spoken to that coach to ensure all things are in order with your admissions application, scholarship, etc., it will be time to call the other coaches who recruited you to let them know of your recent decision. Confirm with the coach you are committed to that it is the right time to make these other calls.
