Creating Well Rounded Junior Golfers

Cordie Walker with Golf Science Lab is joined by Bhrett McCabe, PhD.

Bhrett McCabe, PhD is a performance and sports psychologist that has worked extensively across a variety of settings and athletic groups through his company, The MindSide, LLC. Dr. McCabe has a diverse background of working in the pharmaceutical industry in clinical trial research and education prior to returning to his academic and professional training as a clinical and sports psychologist.

The important thing is early diversity and the early exposure to other sports that teach kids how to sit on the bench and realize that maybe you are not the superstar. And if you are not the superstar, can you be a role player? Can you be the guy that goes into a basketball game and only gets to play a third of the minutes, but you can learn how to play defense and maybe score two points?

The amazing thing about sports is that everybody is on a different maturation schedule and the guy or the girl who is four inches taller and stronger, who grew early may not grow last.

We have to start developing the psychological resiliency, communication skills, and how to deal with failures in juniors. For juniors that play other sports there is a benefit to playing with kids that are better than you, there is also a benefit of playing with kids that are not as good as you we have to allow for as many experiences as possible.
Failure Drills

It’s important to put an athlete through drills that forces them to not succeed and see how they deal with failure. We’re looking for players that go, “That drill that we did, kicked my butt, when are we doing it again? I’m going to get it this time” versus, “I don’t want to do that drill ever again because it made me lose my confidence.”

A drill can’t make you lose your confidence unless you chose to allow that drill to make you lose your confidence.

We have a putting drill that I do that is really hard called the ‘The Closer’ which is eight stations from five feet away around the hole and you have to make 24 in a row to win it, all from five feet or you have to start over.

The average completion time is over an hour-and-a-half the first time because the nerves start kicking in and the last putts are hard to make.

It’s a failure drill, you are going to fail at it, but can you handle the failure in order and put it in the back of your mind to focus on the success?

5 More SAT Prep Tips For The 2016, Redesigned New SAT

5 More SAT Prep Tips For The 2016, Redesigned New SAT

Shaan Patel – 2400 Expert

There is a lot of trepidation around the New SAT. However, I have good news for you. The New SAT is easier than ever to prepare for. Here are 5 tips to help you prepare. You can also join my 6-week Online SAT Class that starts this weekend to learn 95 more strategies by enrolling here.

(1) SAT General Strategy – Follow the 1,000 Question Rule: To really excel, you should practice with 1,000 SAT questions. You should also review those 1,000 SAT questions. Just as critical as the practice itself is understanding why you got certain questions incorrect and what you can do next time to make sure you don’t get similar problems incorrect. The College Board only has a limited number of concepts and question types it can ask you on the SAT. If you practice and review 1,000 questions, you will be sufficiently prepared for test day.

(2) SAT Math Strategy: SAT – Substitute Abstract (with) Tangibles – To avoid doing algebra on the SAT, create your own numbers (tangibles) to plug in for variables (abstracts). This strategy is applicable to algebra, geometry, proportions, etc. Our minds prefer working with tangibles (numbers) over abstracts (variables). 2 is often a simple and easy number to plug-in.

(3) SAT Reading Strategy: Watch Out For Extreme Language – Extreme answer choices are typically incorrect on SAT Reading. Test question writers must be able to defend why correct answers are correct. Answer choices with milder language are easier to defend than answer choices with extreme language. Here are some examples of extreme language:

-all
-always
-completely
-entirely
-every
-everyday
-everyone
-everything
-never
-none
-only
-throughout history
-throughout the ages
-totally
-unique

Answer choices that include the words and phrases above are generally incorrect on the SAT.

(4) SAT Writing Strategy: Watch Out For 99% Wrong Words & Phrases – There are certain words and phrases that are almost always (99% of the time) incorrect on the SAT grammar section, including:

-being
-for the reason
-is because
-is the reason why
-is why

The above are typically incorrect because they create passive voice or redundancy issues.

(5) SAT Essay Strategy – CREW SAID: Although the essay section is technically optional, many competitive colleges will require students to submit their New SAT score with the essay. The New SAT requires students to write an analysis essay based on an argumentative passage that they read. To have a competitive advantage over other students on the SAT Essay, use the acronym CREW SAID to recall eight common argumentative tools that authors use to support their arguments. By analyzing the SAT Essay passage using CREW SAID, you take a lot of the guesswork out of determining how the author will build his or her argument on test-day.

C – Contrast – when an author highlights differences between two items
R – Repercussions – when an author points out the far-reaching consequences of his/her argument
E – Emotion – when an author attempts to make an emotional appeal to the reader
W – Word Choice – when an author purposefully uses certain language in order to build his or her argument

S – Similarity – when an author highlights similarities between two items
A – Authority – when an author cites an expert or influencer to add clout to his or argument
I – Imagery – when an author paints a picture using words
D – Data – when an author uses statistics or numerical evidence

The above represents just 5 of the 100 strategies that we teach in our New SAT courses at Prep Expert (formerly 2400 Expert). You can also join my 6-week Online SAT Class that starts this weekend to learn 95 more strategies by enrolling here.
