Can hypnosis improve my golf game?
(This inquiry came to me by email from RK. As my reply messages have been rejected by AOL, I will answer it here. )
Immediately I think yes, of course, so I do a search on the internet and find that
Hypnosis can improve your golf game and concentration! Also, an article about The MENTAL game of golf. Many athletes have used and continue to use hypnotic techniques to improve their game. Tiger Woods admits to using visualization. This is a technique often used in hypnosis. The imagination can be used to improve many areas of your life, including athletic ability. How many times have you seen the better team lose? They may have more talent and ability, but sometimes the less than stellar athletes are better prepared mentally. They don’t get discouraged if someone drops the ball. They just keep playing their best until the game is over. They don’t give up and sometimes that is enough to “Psyche” out the opponents.
When someone is in the hypnotic state they can practice their golf game mentally. And feel all the feelings they will feel when they win, or beat their best score. This mental rehearsal has been shown to keep a person in good condition, even when they have to sit out for several weeks to recover from an injury. There have been some studies done with college basketball players in some California University. The players who had injuries, but continued to practice in their minds, played with the same skill as those who actually did practice! And a later study showed that the best combination for top athletic skill, was something like 75% visualization plus 25% actual physical practice. And fewer injuries resulted from the visualized practices!
So I’d have to yes, hypnosis can improve your golf game!
