Golf Psychology Secrets Reveal!
Here’s how to get more power in your drives overnight using this easy golf psychology tip.
I’ve said it many times.
One of the most common causes of short distance is over-tighness in your grip.
As pro John Daly said, “I’ll see guys squeezing a club like they were trying to wring out a dishrag.”
A tight grip reduces your backswing, which reduces your distance.
Your tight hands also creates poor wrist action, which inhibits your power even more.
Tension in your hands is one of the easiest ways to guarantee you’ll be inconsistent on the golf course.U.S. Open Champion Jim Furyk has two remedies: the double interlocking group or the double overlapping grip.
With the double overlapping grip, you wrap the last two fingers of your right hand over the index and middle fingers of your left hand.
With the double interlocking grip, you interlock the index finger of your left hand and the last two fingers of your right hand.
At this point you’re wondering where the golf psychology part comes in.
After all, the golf grip is not golf psychology.
Or is it?
Here’s the deal.
When you are frustrated or anxious out there, telling yourself to relax rarely does the trick.
Your mind is all worked up.
So your body follows suit.
A new golf grip will naturally reduce tension in your hands without you trying to relax yourself deliberately.
It will also get your mind off your last shot by giving you something constructive to try on the next one.
And no matter which grip you use, here’s the key, courtesy of Steve Bosdosh, Golf Magazine top 100 Teacher:
Hold the handle of your club more in your fingers. Make an athletic, tension-free motion without concern for the outcome.
When you use your golf grip as a playground, your mental golf psychology will start to fall into place.

The Golf Psychology Cure For Over-Analysing and Over-Thinking
Over-thinking and over-analyzing are two diseases that will sabotage your golf psychology every time.
In the rest of life, thinking and analyzing are good.
They help you solve problems.
On the golf course, however, you’ll end up thinking your ball right into the water, sand trap, or rough.
If you’re a superstar thinker, instead of trusting your body and your heart, you’ll over-analyze every shot.
Slice a drive?
You’ll start analyzing your hips and elbows.
Over hit a putt?
You’ll start analyzing your wrists.
You cannot swing and think about your swing at the same time. You’ll become self-conscious and clumsy before you can say, “birdie.”
In the words of PGA pro John Daly:
“The average golfer steps up to the ball and starts thinking a mile a minute. ‘What’s my target line, how’s my grip, where are my elbows, take it back low and slow, remember to pivot, cock my wrists, bring my shoulder down and through–what’d I forget?
Shit, with all that thinking going on, it’s wonder every swing doesn’t end up a whiff. Let me tell you, by the time I’m ready to start my swing, I’ve stopped thinking. I’ve looked close at my lie, I’ve checked my distance, I’ve factored in the wind, and I’ve figured out where I want to ball to end up–all BEFORE I step up to the ball. Then what I try to do is go blank. Not consciously think 0.about ANYTHING. Just swing the club.”
John is explaining what you already know instinctively. When you second-guess yourself, you become unable to engage your Great Jock Mind.
Your Great Jock Mind is your organic sixth sense in golf. It’s what allows you to make quick adjustments, read greens, and assess weather conditions.
When you over-ride your Great Jock Mind by over-thinking and over-analyzing, you quickly snuff it out. It lays dormant and only surfaces briefly from time to time, much to your frustration.
Turning off your analytical mind is easy to do when you set your mind to it. You start by making a decision to trust yourself rather than analyze yourself – no matter how experienced you are.
Then you practice self-trust. This means resisting the temptation to over-analyze and make technical adjustments and use simple, practical golf psychology on every shot instead.
