A Neuro-scientific Approach to Playing Your Best Golf
Tour Focus trains players to achieve professional levels of play, to get onto professional golf circuits and to reach peak performance within each individual's ability and capacity by using the knowledge of the the brain.
It uses, next to all traditional coaching methods, the very latest of knowledge in Neuroscience about the functioning of the human brain in relation to physical and mental performances, Together with lifestyle counselling to optimise those performances. It aims at instinctive rather than cognitive conscious golf. Tour Focus is certain that an athlete can be at his or her best if the conscious mind stays out of it. And to reach that potential a different approach is needed and offered. Training effectively so players achieve their best possible performance in a minimum of time. We do that mainly at our location at Hacienda del Álamo Golf Resort in sunny Murcia, Spain. The practice and playing facilities there are the best in South East Spain.

Tour Focus Philosophy
Tour Focus students are trained with the support of the latest neuro mechanical and neuro psychological methods.
The reasons is that for top performance accomplishment in sports, the brain dynamics needs to be taken into account because it determines both motor control and crucial psychological factors, such as intrinsic motivation, selective attention, goal setting, working memory, decision making, positive self-concept, and self-control.
This "neuro" approach makes therefore a big difference and is many times totally different from the approaches used thus far. At Tour Focus we also concentrate on working with applied knowledge in health and fitness because there is much evidence that these factors play a crucial role in brain health besides others. The results of all these we use in our approaches within our training- and coaching sessions. The outcomes seem simple and are easy to adopt.
During the technique building phase a golf player takes lessons, usually with their club professional and coach. The swing is build and motions are formed and stored in the procedural memory. Preferably within the players own typical natural physical characteristics. At Tour Focus we basically do not change a technique but have players perform better within their technique! There lies a fundamental difference! We focus on the working and functioning of the brain in the body; how a movement is made in neuro mechanical and neuro biological sense. With emphasis on the establishment of learned adopted movements, specially under stress conditions, and the constant repetition thereof. We use the muscle and nervous system for initiating movements which results in associative learning within brain circuitry and its functions in loco motor adaption, etc. With this approach a player has the best chance to achieve and make that achievement sustainable also under pressure.
"We do not over-coach. We do not change someone's swing to become a model swing, We want our students to become best within their own swing"
