About the Mental Golf Profile:
The profile was developed by Bobby Foster, a management consultant headquartered in Columbia, SC. Bobby is a former teaching professional and golf coach at the University of South Carolina where he coached several All-Americans including four players who played on The PGA Tour. He is a Certified Behavioral Analyst specializing in the DISC Behavioral Style Model. He explains the purpose behind the development of the mental golf profile -
"Our company has had great success using DISC profiles in work language to help people improve performance in all types of working environments. Over the years, I've often thought about how much better I would have been as a player, instructor and coach if I'd known about the DISC System during that stage of my life. We built this profile in golf language so that players, instructors and coaches could enjoy the same benefits I've seen countless experience with DISC profiles in the workplace."
The system generates personalized information for working on your mental game just as video and launch monitors produce personalized information for working on your swing and customizing your equipment. The profile works great for self-coaching as well as for collaborating with your instructor or coach.
