Learn to Think like a Pro
At the Bird Golf Schools, we not only address and solve your swing, but just as importantly teach you how to think on the golf course. This vital ingredient to playing better golf comes from the long-time direction and instruction of Carey Mumford, who was the Bird Golf Schools’ ‘Director of Game Enhancement’. Our instructors were all mentored by Carey, and with his passing in 2013, he left an amazing legacy of learning and understanding that we all continue to teach.
Mumford was the author of several books, and owner/professor of “KeyGolf”. His unique approach to the mental game earned wide acceptance among US and Canadian PGA golf professionals. Golf Magazine recognized him among the top dozen golf psychologists in the country in 1990, and Golf World Magazine devoted several pages to his book, The Double Connexion, in 1992. For over fifteen years, he faced more than 22,000 of the Class A Member Professionals of the PGA, conducted in excess of 200 clinics for amateurs and professionals in 30 states and Canada, and worked individually with over 100 players on the PGA, LPGA, Seniors, Nike, TC Jordan, Hooters, Futures, and Mini Tours. Carey’s storied involvement in Bird Golf is just another reason that our golf school differs from any other.
Through his teaching philosophy, you learn how to “mentally” improve your golf game and thought process. After mastering your keys to physical improvement, our instructors will introduce you to the “32 ball exercise”. This exercise will bridge the gap between conscious and sub-conscious, where all habit resides. You have arrived at the core of the games learning (swing) and you will see the results in your playing immediately. Learn to swing the club on automatic – and never think again!
