How Soren Kjeldsen Turned His Game Round Overnight

Sam Jarman - Thursday, May 19, 2016

I'd like to share an article from Golfweek magazine by my friend Alistair Tait. He interviewed Soren Kjeldsen from Denmark who defends his Irish Open title this week at the K Club.

The nub of the story is how a simple change of mind set, rather than a technical swing change or months of practice, took Soren from No 303 in the world to the top 40. He has had ten top 10 finishes since winning the Irish Open, including 7th at the Masters. All this from a player who averages less than 280 yards off the tee, a remarkable achievement in an age where power is supposedly the dominating factor in success.

There is a big misunderstanding about how these turnarounds in fortune happen. The assumption is that if you have been playing badly for a while, it will take you a long time and thousands of practice shots to see improvements. In my experience this isn't always the case. Often, as with Kjeldsen, one single insight, a fresh piece of thinking can give a new outlook on the game, and a seemingly miraculous upturn in performance is the result.

Often, what is blocking people from having such an insight, is confusion about where this fresh new thinking originates from. We are so caught up in repetitive, habitual patterns of thought, that there is no room for an insight to come in. However, once you get a glimpse of how you can get past this thinking and access a deeper level of intelligence, your world and your golf can change around in a moment.

I'm going to be running some speaking events and workshops around the country. Please drop me an email if you'd like me to come to your golf club in the coming months.

If you'd like to have a chat about how you can see things differently, and how you can take your game to the next level, please get in touch.

Individual lessons and lesson packages are still available as normal.
