1. THE GOLFING MINDSET – A golfer must learn to manage their thinking and control their emotions. A golfer is tested mentally and physically throughout their round. If negative emotions and thoughts are permitted to exist, the golfer will struggle to trust their talent and succumb to the pressures of tournament play.
2. THE REAL GAME OF GOLF – Golf is a game of misses & mistakes; nobody has perfected the game and no one ever will. However, to win a golfer need not be perfect, just shoot the lowest score. The question is, “How do you shoot lower scores?” We teach junior golfers, through game-based training, how to shoot lower scores and track their improvement for continuous development.
3. PURPOSEFUL PRACTICE – We believe practice does not make perfect; rather, perfect practice makes permanent! To become a champion golfer, your practice routine must reflect that of champion golfers. We teach our players fun ways to challenge themselves in ways that simulate tournament conditions and produce superior results.
4. SKILL DEVELOPMENT – There are so many parts to the game of golf that players often become overwhelmed with information and bogged down thinking about technique. At CJGA, we focus on teaching players only the skills they need to achieve their stated goals, later adding new skills to further enhance the learning. Just as a young gymnast must learn a somersault before a handspring, we teach junior golfers the basics before moving on to more complex skills.
