Dr. Glen Albaugh sport psychologist and author of “Winning the Battle Within,” talks about suspending judgement and how with this technique coaches can help players overcome their fear of failure.
Glen taught sports psychology at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California for 28 years where he coached the Pacific Tigers golf team. It was during this time, while working with the finest sports psychologists, coaches and golf instructors in the world, that he formulated the basis for the principles in his renowned book, which was authored with Michael Bowker, Winning the Battle Within. These principles have been refined over the years through applications and consultations with established touring pros, and a broad-base of amateurs – juniors to elite. By establishing structure in pre, post and in-between shot routines, Glen gives golfers the ability to apply his most profound insight “the perfect swing is the one you trust”. In Winning the Battle Within – the book and workshop/consultations – Glen features quality practice describing drills that will enhance learning and improve performance. Glen also takes you on a journey into the inner game where he tells you about the “zone;” what it is, how to get there, and how to stay there.
