Elite Athletes Use Performance Journals to Increase Confidence and Practice With Purpose
A performance journal is a tool that many to most sport psychologists will insist their pupils use. Ask Stephen Curry how many 3 pointers in a row he has made in practice and he will quickly respond "77". Olympic Athletes track practice sessions as well and are always just trying to have a personal best performance. Tour Players know exactly how many greens, fairways and putts they had after each round. They also can remember personal best practice sessions. If you want to improve your score on the golf course, you should too. I have been coaching golf for 20 years and it drives me crazy to see my players not keep a journal. I catch myself saying, "How can I help you improve your scoring if I don't know what your Strengths and Weaknesses are?" Try using the performance journal for golf practice, casual rounds and competition. I promise your practice sessions will get better, you will be better at playing a golf course 1 shot at a time, and you will have less high's and lows.
