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.
Bobby 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 been involved with the DISC Profile System during those stages of my life.
With that in mind, we built this DISC profile in golf language so that players, instructors and coaches could enjoy the same benefits I’ve seen countless experience with DISC profiles in other areas of life.”
Once you work through a 10 minute questionnaire, the system generates customized information about you and your mental game tendencies, much like video and launch monitors produce customized information for working on your swing and customizing your equipment. The profile is built for self-coaching as well as for collaborating with your instructor or coach.
Your report includes “workshop” type exercises that will reinforce important mental game strategies and make it easy to self-coach yourself and improve your game.
