In preparation for the 2005 season, on 11th April 2005 The Oxfordshire Golf Club will play host to three of sport’s most forward thinking minds, Scott Cranfield, Dr Karl Morris and Jamie Edwards.

The event is aimed at developing players, pros, and aspiring pros. Every pro taking part in the seminar will receive 25 CPD points. Tickets cost £99, places are strictly limited, so to reserve your place contact Trained Brain on: 0161 655 0353.
Scott Cranfield, is one of the world’s most knowledgeable golfers, and has been a European Tour coach for the last 14 years, during which time he has coached several players to Ryder Cup and tournament success. He is also the founder of the Cranfield Golf Academies, which are now located at 12 sites across London and the Southeast. He has also become one of the most sought after speakers worldwide with his groundbreaking work on “Linking Mind & Body for a Better Swing”.
Commenting on this seminar, delivered at the European Teaching and Coaching Conference in October 2003, Sandy Jones, chief executive of the PGA said, “At Munich Scott demonstrated how an appreciation of how people learn is as important as understanding the golf swing.”
Concentrating on mental training, Dr Karl Morris and Jamie Edwards, will examine, “The thinking game you want, for the future you desire”. Karl Morris is former professional golfer, who retrained to study psychology to assist golfers with some of the “performance disorders” he suffered from playing as a pro. His work consisted studying many forms of performance training and sciences and today has emerged as one of the leading psychologists in sports. He recently assisted Darren Clarke with his mental game after his early exit from the US Open. Their work together led Clarke to recording the biggest tournament win of his career to date, the NEC Invitational title.
Jamie Edwards is a former England international basketball player, who at only 5‘6″ had to find new ways to overcome obvious physical limitations. The physical disadvantage gave him a thirst for knowledge- what separates the average athlete from good and good from great. Edwards developed his approach to mental coaching, whilst in the USA, where had first hand experience of the skills used to develop NBA players. Commenting on his approach, Edwards says, “The only way to improve the standards in sports is for the coach to learn how to train the brain as well as train the technique”
