Helping Players Break Through Mental Barriers In Golf

Share This Resource

Anne Walker was named the Margot and Mitch Milias Director of Women’s Golf (@StanfordWGolf) in 2012, quickly establishing herself as one of the top college coaches in the country. She has guided the Cardinal to four consecutive NCAA Championships berths and captured the first national title in program history during the 2014-15 season.

In this video, Walker talks about the unique challenges that arise when trying to break mental barriers with athletes. Coaches are familiar with pushing players past physical limits that they thought they had. This teaches them that they are capable of more than they realized. In golf, there are less physical barriers and more mental barriers. She stays positive and talks about pushing her players mentally so they can accomplish things they did not realize they were capable of.
