    Fred Shoemaker, Karl Morris and Richard Sheridan – Presentation to the Olympic Club in San Francisco #189

    Fred Shoemaker, Karl Morris and Richard Sheridan – Presentation to the Olympic Club in San Francisco #189

    What ACTUALLY makes difference in coaching ?
    What REALLY has an impact on the way you experience the game?
    On today’s Brain Booster we have a slightly different show lined up for you. One that I am sure you will enjoy.
    A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of being asked to do a live presentation with Fred Shoemaker and Richard Sheridan to members of the world famous Olympic Club in San Francisco.
    We had a wonderful wide ranging discussion which I am sure will really get you thinking about your game and if you are a coach your whole philosophy and approach to the game.
    We really drill into what does and doesn’t make a difference. To both playing and coaching.
    Why the ‘DO’ instruction which is so dominant in the world of coaching is largely ineffective
    How there are 4 levels of instruction and how to gain an understanding of which levels actually make a true impact
    We look at natural movement
    Instinctive movement
    The joy of actually moving in a way that is complementary with YOUR body
    How is it actually created?
    How the CONTEXT you create for your golf will determine the way you play and feel both on and off the golf course
    Do you have a mind or ARE you your mind?
    How you can look at your mind as a crazy machine that will do what it will do but you don’t have to fall into the trap of believing everything your mind tells you
    As ever when Fred gets talking it is a wonderful listen. It is a great experience. You will want to have a note book and pen handy with this one. There are some absolute gems

    The Lost Art of the Short game – Gary Nicol #187

    The Lost Art of the Short game – Gary Nicol #187

    It is exciting to announce that we have just finished the final book in the ‘Lost Art’ trilogy.
    The Lost Art of the Short Game will be available in the autumn so it seemed a really good idea to get back onto the Brain Booster fellow author Gary Nicol.
    Gary has a wealth of experience in coaching from his time on the European Tour working with some of the best players in the world to his current position of coaching from one of the most beautiful golfing locations on earth Archerfield in Scotland
    We have both been greatly touched by the feedback we have received from the two previous books, The Lost Art of Putting and the Lost Art of Playing golf.
    It seems we have been able to connect a number of golfers back to the source of the joy of creating shots and putts.
    Creating shots and putts in YOUR way as opposed to a prescribed method engineered by someone else.
    On today’s show we dive a bit deeper into all things Lost Art
    What have we actually LOST?
    More importantly how do we FIND it again?
    How we lost connection with the real heart and soul of the game
    Looking more specifically at the SHORT GAME
    We had the great honour to have the legend of wedges Bob Vokey write the introduction for us to the book.
    He stressed the importance of knowing what the club in your hand is meant to do and HOW to use it.
    Gary describes this perfectly
    This simple understanding will make a BIG difference in your ability to go out and CREATE some great short game shots
    We look into the role of imagination
    The often over looked aspect of the game
    A great session with Gary his wisdom and practical common sense always shine through in his words

    Finding True Purpose in your Coaching – Sandy Jamieson #186

    Finding True Purpose in your Coaching – Sandy Jamieson #186

    Today on the Brain Booster we have a fantastic session with Sandy Jamieson.
    We got the chance to pay our respects to Ramsay McMaster who had a big influence on us both. Ramsay past away 10 years ago in the most sudden and tragic of circumstances
    Sandy himself is a fascinating story of a golf coach achieving what many perceive to be the ultimate in the coaching arena which is working with tour players.
    He had great success and became a ‘big name’ on the PGA and European Tour working with the likes of Robert Allenby and Jarrod Lyle
    More and more players sought out his advice.
    The trajectory was stellar
    Yet he realised bit by bit how little this life actually satisfied him at a deep level
    He stopped working on the Tour
    He went back to club life working at one of the top member’s clubs in Australia
    Coaching club golfers but as Sandy mentions this again didn’t give him a true sense of satisfaction
    He finally connected back with his true purpose and passion in life by going back to the very heart of the game of golf
    He went back to coaching beginners at a public course
    Not only did he do this but he did this with just ONE CLUB
    He now ONLY coaches beginners
    We had a great chat about his philosophy of learning the game
    The benefits of SIMPLICITY
    Also about the future of the game
    Growing the game
    The need to get people playing golf in a way they enjoy so we can RETAIN them
    To make the game fun and accessible
    A great session to make you think about TRUE PURPOSE in life

    Learning with the Brain in Mind – Michael Hebron and Susie Meyers #185

    Learning with the Brain in Mind – Michael Hebron and Susie Meyers #185

    Today we have a very special show as we welcome back to the Brain Booster Michael Hebron and Susie Meyers.
    The podcast with Susie a few weeks ago went down really well and we had some tremendous feedback.
    On that show Susie mentioned how much Michael Hebron had been an influence on her career.
    I can say the same myself.
    Michael was very kind to me a number of years ago when he welcomed me to his club at Smithtown Landing in New York and he allowed me to watch him teach.
    We have kept in touch ever since
    From those early days Michael has evolved his coaching from a very technique orientated model to one that is much more about the nature of LEARNING
    How we need to create learning environments to allow students to best develop their game.
    Michael has spent many years researching the most productive ways to coach and learn with the brain in mind
    The conversation flowed in a number of directions that you will find useful to consider
    Golf is a game of motion not positions
    The importance of time in the golf swing
    Bad swings are not made when get out of time
    A putting swing and a driver swing take the same time
    The concept of ONE in the swing
    Coaching to get students to THINK
    How we react to the images in our mind before the shot
    How to create more effective images
    How we can develop effective sub conscious learning
    The myth of ‘muscle memory’
    What we CAN influence before he shot
    The vital role of IMAGINATION
    How emotions drive so much of our development

    Asking some of life’s BIG questions – Sam Jarman #184

    Asking some of life’s BIG questions – Sam Jarman #184

    I had the chance to talk with Sam Jarman on today’s Brain Booster.
    Golf was the thread we began with but the conversation moved in so many interesting areas.
    Sam is a radically different thinker
    A potential game changer
    He looks at both golf and life through a refreshingly honest lens
    His work has been influenced by the teachings of Sydney Banks the originator of the concept of Three Principles
    He has written two great books ‘The Three Principles to Outstanding Golf’ and ‘Take Relief’
    Both outstanding pieces of work
    During our time together Sam discussed his own journey of exploration and his commitment to answer some of life’s deeper questions.
    Who am I?
    What is my purpose?
    Why am I here?
    As I said not the usual discussion you may find on most podcasts about golf
    Yet I am absolutely certain that our golf will always be a reflection of US
    We cannot help but bring ourselves with us to the golf course
    When golf is a means to try to quieten the ego
    When golf is so much of our identity
    When the outcome of a golf shot is like life and death
    The journey will probably be a miserable one
    Sam gives some great insights about our true nature
    The nature of our mind
    The nature of our being
    Many of the myths and misconceptions around the ‘mental game’
    The futility of trying to fix thinking with more and more thinking
    Why we fall into the trap of feeling we lack something
    The feeling we need to be and do more
    We discuss the wonderful concept of ‘utmost sincerity’
    A great session with a fascinating man

Simply the best golf podcast out there

Been listening to this podcast for a year or so now and its really made an amazing difference to my game. Not through what i need to be doing, because thats unique to me and i have grown to learn that, but the way i feel when i play the game. I seem to have a far better attitude than people i play with, and although i feel a proportion of that is perhaps down to the kind of person i am, it must be said that a decent chunk of it is from listening to Karl and the various guests he has on, and so I'm extremely grateful. Just listened to the most recent episode and wasn’t sure how to get in touch with you Karl but just wanted to send my best wishes and hope you’re ok mate. Cheers. All the best.

The real Stevo ,

Superb

Excellent podcast, hours of quality discussions with top guests. Guaranteed to open your mind and get you thinking about your approach to golf, sport and who knows maybe even your daily life.
Has kept me entertained on long car journeys for hours and reignited my enjoyment of a game I’ve played for 35 years.

Golf listener ,

Fantastic insights

Why do we keep playing this game? Some days are better than others but all create joy (every shot pleases someone) and great memories. Listening to this podcasts reinforces how lucky we are to both play the game and build friendships for life. Andrew Murray and Karl Morris fireside reflections could become a spin off series we would all enjoy!
