Here at Palmetto Dunes, we believe that improving your golf game often times starts in your head. Our Hilton Head golf school, the Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy, offers a variety of classes that work on your mental golf game. Our head of golf instruction, Doug Weaver, is a big proponent of spending time on the mind in order to improve your skills.
â€śThe average person is so busy, they donâ€™t have time to master the perfect golf game. Plus, every golfer is restricted by the limits of his physical skill,â€ť says Doug. â€śThe one thing within our control, however, is how we approach an overall round, a specific hole or a given shot.â€ťÂ
We offer a Mental Golf Workshop weekly, as well as part of our three-day Hilton Head golf school. Before you even come to class, youâ€™ll fill out a survey online, which takes about 15 minutes, that determines your golf personality. The result is a 24-page report that Doug uses to improve your game during the Hilton Head golf class. With the survey, youâ€™ll get an analysis of your golf temperament, golf fitness tendencies and ability to work with instructors and get customized strategies for pre-round preparation, playing shots and course management.
Doug teaches his students how to concentrate and not just think on a conscious level, but a subconscious level. But he promises, no hypnotism involved :). â€śItâ€™s a fun way to play golf,â€ť says Doug.
He encourages his students to envision a good golf shot before ever taking a swing and even to try putting with eyes closed, or with eyes on the cup and not the ball.
Come try Dougâ€™s methods of using your mind to become a better golf player. Read more about our 2- and 3-day golf schools and variety of golf clinics.
