    What are the keys to a RESILIENT Mind – Matt Caldaroni #228

    What are the keys to a RESILIENT Mind – Matt Caldaroni #228

    In today’s unpredictable and chaotic world the mental skill of resilience is one to be really prized and developed.
    In the game of golf being resilient to the inevitable setbacks the game throws at you is a major asset and one the very best players have in abundance.
    On today’s Brain Booster we are joined by Matt Caldaroni a Performance Coach specializing in RESILIENCE
     
    Matt Caldaroni, was faced with adversity at the age of twelve. A coach tried to rip away his lifelong dream of becoming a professional soccer goalkeeper, telling him the sport just wasn’t for him.
    At that moment, Molliteum was born. Matt had realized that in order to get to where he wanted to be, he needed to be in charge. Nothing in life was going to be given but needed to be taken.
     
    Matt weaponized the adversity he experienced and became the best version of himself. Earning himself a scholarship at the age of seventeen, he made the jump to the professional ranks of soccer, in Italy, at the age of nineteen. It was here that Matt realized there was an unseen advantage that lay beneath the surface within us all:
    resilience saved his career.
    Most of the time in sport and in life we are faced with setbacks and disappointment.
    We don’t hit the shot we want
    We don’t make the birdie we expected
    We finish down the field in a tournament
    Our handicap doesn’t come down
    Setbacks are part of the game of life
    How we DEAL with those setbacks is the very heart of the resilient mind
    With Matt - We discuss:
    The four cornerstones to building resilience How you build your IDENTITY as a resilient person The key steps to resilience Building a resilient mind and body

    How to create an EFFICIENT golf swing – Kelvin Kelley #226

    How to create an EFFICIENT golf swing – Kelvin Kelley #226

    Welcome back to the Brain Booster for another week.
    Thank you for supporting the show, it really is appreciated.
    From time to time people question me about my seemingly indifferent approach to ‘working’ on the golf swing. And that all I want people to do is ‘just play’
    This couldn’t be further from the truth as I have always believed that the key to great golf is a blend of swing efficiency coupled with a great mindset.
    I do not believe in endlessly dissecting your swing and obsessing over positions but I do believe in having a good understanding of what creates your SHOTS.
    It was with that in mind I wanted to welcome back a great coach from the USA and a big supporter of the podcast Kelvin Kelley to discuss how best to make your swing more efficient.
    We discuss:
    How the set up is the very best place to start making your swing more efficient.
    Why you can set up in a way to help you create a powerful impact position
    Feeling a dynamic impact position with an impact bag
    Hitting angles at address
    How to turn the switch to performance on the golf course
    Becoming a ‘shot detective’ out on the golf course
    Letting the shot create the swing
    How your physiology affects your performance
    How your lifestyle dramatically affects your performance
    Some really solid and interesting concepts from a top coach
    Kelvin is a Class A PGA golf professional in San Francisco, California. He has taught at some of the top golf clubs in the Bay Area, which include The Olympic Club and Sonoma Golf Club. Kelvin was recently voted a “Top Instructor To Watch” by golf.com and has written several articles for golf.com and GolfWRX.
    Kelvin works with his students to develop an efficient golf swing. He welcomes golfers of all skill levels however is geared towards the more committed golfer. Besides swing and short game instruction, Kelvin is an expert in on and off the course coaching. This includes mental preparation, developing practice routines and course strategizing.

    Coaching and Caddying for a PGA Tour winner – Randy Joyner #224

    Coaching and Caddying for a PGA Tour winner – Randy Joyner #224

    Today we welcome back onto the Brain Booster our really good friend and colleague from the USA, Randy Joyner.
    Randy has been establishing himself over the past few years as one of the very best coaches in the States.
    He has had outstanding results at ALL levels applying many of the ‘Lost Art of Golf’ principles. One of his long time students is Derek Ernst who has been a winner on the PGA Tour.
    We got the chance to discuss with Randy how he works with Derek and in particular what he learned from a recent experience where he caddied for Derek in the John Deere Classic.
    There are some absolute gems of information within this conversation.
    On this particular week Derek was struggling to make the cut and Randy describes just how they manged to get the job done and play at the weekend.
    We often hear about winners on Tour but the real pressure for many players is to get over the cut line and have employment for the weekend
    We get totally inside the ropes here with the player/caddie relationship
    We discussed :
    How a top player would prepare for a PGA Tour event
    The pitfalls of doing the WRONG type of practice
    Falling into the ‘seriousness’ trap
    How you need to ‘live life’ outside the confines of the four rounds
    The importance of the ‘in between’ time. The 90% of golf that is NOT golf
    Trying to make the cut, feeling uncomfortable but getting the job done anyway

    This session is a recording of a live webinar I did with Rupert recently discussing the nature of the ‘Zone Experience’
    As ever with Rupert it was a wonderfully engaging and thought provoking session full of insight to be applied to all areas of your life.
    Rupert Spira is the author of numerous books including ‘Being Myself’ and ‘Being aware of being aware’ His most recent book is ‘You are the happiness you seek’

    What is the Zone?
    More importantly how can we access its qualities on a more frequent basis
    How do we interact with the environment?
    Do we see the course as a ‘friendly place’?
    What place does ambition have in the Non Dual approach?
    Being completely absorbed in something you LOVE to do

Brainbooster Podcast

I have been a long time follower of Karl’s work and his teachings have played a big part in my golf game improving significantly even as I have got older. Check out The Mindfactor website, Mind Caddie App and lost Art of Golf Series of Books also - this Podcast is however a great way of checking in weekly to relevant topics, accumulating good days and improved skills. Highly Recommended.

Golf between the ears ,

Brainbooster podcast

I’ve been an avid listener since training with Karl. Great insights and excellent variety of input on the mental side of golf. An area overlooked by majority of amateur golfers.

Great for golf and life

I’ve been listening to this avidly while walking my dog during the lockdown. It offers some fantastic golfing insights, a great variety of guests and views and has really helped me change my approach to my golf game.

Some of the guests have given me fantastic nuggets of advice that can help in life and business, as well as Golf. It is also introduced me to some other great reading material.

Karl will be pleased to hear that as a result I’ve bought or three of the recent ‘Lost Art of’ books and I’ve also invested in Adam Young’s golf practice manual.

It’s going to be disappointing when I’ve finally caught up with my binge listening.
