Coach in your pocket app launched by golf pro graduate
The Pre-Shot Training Programme, created by Jon Finn, who is also a Visiting Research Fellow at Leeds Met, has been given the seal of approval by leading PGA coaches offering Pre-Shot lessons, including Cookridge Hall's PGA Coach, Mark Pinkett, and adapted into the new app. His original training programme is currently used by anyone training to be a professional golf coach in Great Britain and Ireland.
Jon commented: "The app is effectively a golf coach in your pocket. It trains golfers how to think before, during and after playing golf shots, making them think effectively when they're on the golf course and helping them to manage their confidence, concentration and ability to deal with pressure. The app is based on a practical and highly effective system of mental training that I have created for players of all levels. It works by making key aspects of psychology tangible and real so that they can be easily practiced. The Pre-Shot Programme has a generic framework which can be matched with any individual's personal preferences, making it suitable for players of all types and standards, using video and still images to make the training more effective."
