In the competitive world of junior golf, talent alone is notenough to ensure success. Developing a growth mindset, an unwavering belief in
the ability to improve through effort and determination, is essential for young
golfers aiming to reach their full potential. GAMECHANGER Performance Coaching

Understanding the Growth Mindset:

A growth mindset, coined by psychologist Carol Dweck(Mindset), is the belief that abilities and talents can be developed through
dedication, hard work, and continuous learning. Individuals with a growth
mindset embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as a
path to mastery, and learn from criticism. By cultivating a growth mindset,
junior golfers can unlock their full potential and excel both on and off the
golf course.
