Train your brain – Golf Media-Info Online

Living in our time means having access to a variety of technological means to improve performance. Experienced by professionals, these remedies can also be used and adapted at an amateur level. Knowledge of dynamics helps improve performance, we are sure. However, the engine of our actions is controlled by the brain and everything still needs to be learned from this information center.


A system used by many of the world’s top professionals measures alpha, beta and gamma brain waves in correlation with heart rate and breathing. Alpha brain waves occur when a person relaxes or rests, resulting in a slower heartbeat.

In turn, when solving a problem, beta and gamma waves occur, causing an increase in breathing and heart rate.

When playing golf, we sometimes feel nervous, anxious or worried about various game situations. Then our heart beats faster and the brain produces an excess of beta waves. In this situation, it is difficult to concentrate, stay calm, think logically and coordinate movements well.

In just a few sessions with this measurement system, you can find the right mix of alpha, beta and gamma waves individually for each person, finding the ideal heart rate to stay calm and focused.


What I notice in my practice confirms these observations. Everyone I have in class is nervous and that’s completely normal. I just try to calm her down and slow down the pace.

As they become calmer and more focused, I have a clearer idea of ​​what adjustments I need to make to their movement.


To increase the pressure that comes with playing golf, I invite you to use your imagination and take on performance challenges of all kinds. Here’s a simple thing that comes to mind:

When putting, line up five balls 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 feet from the hole. The challenge is to complete the sequence of 5 without making any mistakes. The pressure increases when you complete 4 and are on the fifth.

Light up! Invent challenges to exercise your brain.

Good golfing
