Is College Golf in Your Future?

Over the past decade, the Mistwood junior programs have a legacy of helping student athletes achieve their goal of playing college golf. Every player’s goals are unique and our staff is dedicated to guiding each individual player on a path to meet their goals.

Our coaches are dedicated to ensuring our students and parents are making the best choices in the recruitment process. We routinely talk to college coaches and recruiters to better guide our staff and players on the proper steps. We’ve found the process is different from school to school, division to division, and coach to coach.

Mistwood Performance Center - 4 Steps to Success

Golf mastery requires continuous feedback and training over time, both on and off the course. To achieve this, the coaches of the Committed Athlete Program utilize the "4 Steps to Success" process to help players transfer skills from the range to the course, make correct on-course decisions, and manage their thoughts, attention, and emotions under competition.

Step 1: Understanding Cause and Effect: Player and coach determine which skills are costing them the most, understand what they are doing wrong, and seek to identify what needs to be fixed.

Step 2: Supervised Practice: Player experiences a lot of supervised practice and a lot of repetition with feedback. Player is engaged in practice with the deliberate intention of improving their skills.

Step 3: Transfer Training: MPC Coach assists the player in exposing golf skills to conditions that simulate those that they would experience on the golf course under competition.

Step 4: Play: MPC Coach helps golfers better play the game using their existing skills while keeping score and getting out on the course.
