Mistwood Performance Center - 4 Steps to Success

Golf mastery requires continuous feedback and training over time, both on and off the course. To acheive 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.
