Remember The Name

It’s been a great summer for i2i sport. As well as helping Wigan to win the FA Cup, one of our golfing clients, Tommy Fleetwood, picked up his first European Tour victory in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.

Having led the tournament at various stages, Tommy found himself in a three way play off with Stephen Gallacher and Ricardo Gonzalez and kept his nerve on the first play-off hole to claim his maiden success with a birdie. For those who watched on TV, you might remember the image of Tommy posing for the press alongside the family dog, Maisy.

A former Number 1 Amateur and Challenge Tour Champion, Tommy Fleetwood is still only 22 but is now beginning to deal with the challenges of life on the European Tour like a seasoned professional. However, in sport as in life there are always challenges. 2012 was tough and he dug deep to keep his Tour card on the final tournament of the year. This year the challenges have been different – turning Top 10s and Top 20s into that elusive victory.

Sport is never easy and golf, as many of you will know, can be the most frustrating and anger-inducing of them all! What brief lessons can we, the amateur golfer, take from Tommy?

  1. Commit to every shot
  2. Accept the outcome whatever happens
  3. Keep your self-talk positive at all times
  4. Never lose sight of the dream
  5. Never stop learning from both success and failure
The i2i Approach to Coaching

When working with a golfer, it is important to firstly understand the individual you are working before starting to develop their sporting performance. We begin by building a picture of the client’s personality, background, motivation, goals and values.

We then take the client through some psychological theory so they have an understanding of why we ask them to try certain things. The third step is to teach a series of tools and techniques that can be used both on and off the course.
