48. I Can
http://www.siegergolf.comLow expectations generally find their origins in a negative outlook - which is usually the result of past experience. However, think of your outlook like a lens through which you see and interpret the world. On the golf course in particular low expectations seem to be a common factor in those who perform poorly - and poor shots are generally met with a shrug of the shoulders and an exasperated shout of "I knew I was going to do that". But guess what there is a much more simple fix than you have ever imagined.

47. What To Do When It All Goes To Trash
http://www.siegergolf.comWhen our game deserts us in the middle of a match it is rather like being in a skid in a car when whatever you do appears to make no difference. Why?Chances are you were not taught what to do and certainly never practiced what to do, the analogy is similar with golf - we need to BE PREPARED!! Like a boy scout. This podcast not only explores this idea but for the first time gives you an exercise you can do to prevent meltdown on the course, and in the supermarket queue as well!!

46. Accentuate The Positive
http://www.siegergolf.comThe notion of having a positive attitude is too simple a concept to be taken seriously. It sounds straight out of the Disney movie playbook. Yet research and studies have demonstrated that it does. On the golf course too many. p[layers are starting with a bad attitude and simply compounding the consequences of such an approach. Listen to Robin look at the facts and reflect on how we can and should embrace a positive attitude both on and off the golf course.

45. Make Your Practice Swing Count
http://www.siegergolf.comToo many golfers have rather dull, feeble and rather pointless practice swings. They've seen the pro's do it so think I'd better have a go at that. It's called a practice swing because that is exactly what it is - an opportunity to actually PRACTICE the shot you are about to take.Why waste this opportunity! This podcast explores the major benefits one will gain from incorporating it into your pre-shot routine.Plus it will settle tension and make for more consistent shots.

44. Never Play The Blame Game
http://www.siegergolf.comBlaming circumstances, the rules, our opponents, our star sign, or God, is not of any benefit to our being in the right space to play our best golf. Easy to do (which is why we do it so often) but in reality, it is a distraction that is negative and impedes up from playing our best golf.

43. A Small Matter of Strategy
http://www.siegergolf.comWith the Ryder Cup around the corner, how do we manage a strategy in match play to give up our best chance of playing our best golf? Sadly there is no go-to solution but from my experience, there are some personal strategies which I believe can be the difference that makes the difference when the going gets tough.

42. Are You Ready Are You Prepared?
http://www.siegergolf.comLack of preparation before we tee off is possible for the amateur golfer amongst the most common yet easily fixed problems I encounter. But who wants to warm up when there is golf to be played. If pilots, surgeons or actors went to their work with the same level of pre-performance preparation that the average amateur golfer display no one would fly - get operated on or go to the theatre :-))) Food for thought plus a great way to save a few shots on every round.

41. Emotional Overload
http://www.siegergolf.comSometimes we get emotional overload, not just when we are angry, but also when we try too hard or get down on ourselves over a poor shot, or when our game does not match our expectations. It does us no favours the idea that you play better when you are 'mad' is amongst the dumbest things some golfers say.This podcast has there instant on-course tips you can apply in any situation where you feel the emotional state is getting out of control.

39. When the Light Turns Green .................Go!!
http://www.siegergolf.comWe all know universally that a red light means Stop, Danger, Do Not Pass Go. It brings our attention to the fact that we need to be exercise caution. Equally, we know that 'getting the green light ' means Go, All is Safe, Proceed.In golf on the course, we need to make sure we are not making decisions with the Red Light shining in our minds (or the Red Mist to be more exact), as it impairs our ability to perform to our best. The faster we can turn red to green the better. Find out more.

37. Don't Fight the Nerves
http://www.siegergolf.comNerves we all get them, but how we manage them will determine how we deal with them. Too often players try to either ignore (bad option), think their way out of it (impossible) or simple beat themselves up for being "weak" - (dumb).This weeks episode is all about how to understand the function of nerves accept and make friends with them - as you'll understand it can help you to focus on the task at hand, and not over think the nerves themselves.

36. Meaningful Practice
http://www.siegergolf.comThe single least utilised aspect of improvement is the lack of meaningful practice on the range. I imagine that on average 95% of people at the range are simply hitting balls in the hope that they hit a good shot. Usually without any clues as to why or how that happened :-))Practicing with intent and purpose will reward the diligent player, who hits 20 balls in 30 minutes rather than 100 in haste and without really thought.

35. You Truly Need To Believe
http://www.siegergolf.comWhat is the X Factor that the very best golfers have, what is their secret sauce? Though they may differ in background, temperament and approach to the game, the one thing they all have in abundance is confidence in their ability to win. They believe. They believe that have what it takes, they believe that coming down the stretch they will prevail. We amateur golfers would do well to believe in ourselves just a little more, to adopt a more positive approach to how we think about what we can do.

33. A 100 Year Old Brilliant Mental Game Lesson From Mr H Vardon
http://www.siegergolf.comThe notion that the mental game is a modern study is both erroneous and quite simply bonkers. However, very few players of the past wrote much or articulated their approach to the mental game. One who fortunately did is the 6-time Open Champion, Harry Vardon.One bit of his advice he shares I think is the single best tip for golfers of all levels and until I read it, I had never heard a teacher /writer /coach or player mention it. When you hear it I hope it has the same impact on you. Quite Brilliant.

32. What A Parachute Malfunction Can Teach You About Managing Pressure
http://www.siegergolf.comPressure in golf exists, but it is self-created and not in the least life-threatening. If it were life-threatening in the way that emergencies in skydiving are, especially when you are falling at 120 mph with a failed main parachute and 13 seconds left to live, then you make sure you do have Emergency Procedures to save your life. Creating strategies of the course to help you deal with emergencies on the course I believe is the single most overlooked weapon players should be developing.

31. Try v Don't Try
http://www.siegergolf.comThere is a paradox in golf that the less we try to control the swing, the process the actions surrounding the actual playing of the game, the better we often play. Too often we play at a level of Conscious Incompetance, rather than Unconscious Excellence.It is a rather elusive position but we regularly get to it almost in an instant in the most improbable of circumstances.

29. An Amazing Fact, and other Stuff about Putting

In truth probably not but there are factors we are often unaware of, that can help us. Robin explores in this weeks episode.
