BLOG POST #1 – Goal Setting

Who Is Inky Johnson?

By Iain Highfield, KOHR Academy Director

Inky Johnson is a thankful man.

He’s naturally grateful, as anyone would be, for the precious gifts of a rewarding career, a loving wife, and two beautiful children.

But most of all, he gives thanks for the 9th of September 2006. It was the day his world changed in an instant and forever.
It was the day he nearly died.



BLOG POST #2 – Happiness

The Fisherman’s Tale – The Endless Quest for More

By Iain Highfield, KOHR Academy Director

A rich tourist is walking around a beautiful harbor, and he is texting and checking his emails on his mobile phone. On the odd occasion, he takes a break from his phone to soak in some scenery or feel the cool breeze caress his face.

An old fisherman catches his eye, as his boat is the only one to have docked from the morning fishing trip.

The rich tourist shouts across to the fisherman, “You should stay out longer and catch more fish.”



BLOG POST #3 – Resilience

Who is Kai Knight? And what can we learn from him?

By Iain Highfield, KOHR Academy Director

A bespectacled and slightly built classical violinist might at first sight seem an odd choice of inspirational speaker for one of America’s top NFL teams.

But coach Pete Carroll knew exactly what he was doing when he invited Kai Kight to talk to his Seattle Seahawks following their bruising loss in 2015’s Super Bowl XLIX.



BLOG POST #4 – Golf Practice

Why, why, why, why, why (etc.)
can’t I take my range game to the golf course?’

By Iain Highfield – KOHR Academy Director

The answer to this question, admittedly one that the KOHR Coaching team have all spent time trying to solve is a framework that helps coaches and players think and practice in a way that will lead to the retention and transfer of golfing skill.

The KOHR Coaching Team have accumulated thousands of hours coaching golf at all levels, studying sports psychology, the learning sciences and – most importantly – spending time with some of the greatest minds in, not only professional golf, but also many other fields of human performance. And what that has given us is a distillation of this vast bank of knowledge that makes it practical (and digestible) for you to become a better golfer where, and when, it matters most.


Blog Post #5 – Delayed Gratification

The Number 1 factor a child needs to succeed on and off the golf course.

By Iain Highfield – KOHR Academy Director

The Marshmallow Experiment

At Stanford University, in the 1960s, a team of researchers, led by Professor Walter Mischel, set out to explore the ability of young children to defer their gratification, and the implications that this ability, or the lack of it, might have for their development.

Hundreds of four year old children were tested by being put in a room alone with a marshmallow. “If it’s still here when I get back,” a researcher told them, “you will get another.” The researchers were then absent from the room for fifteen minutes, during which time 2 out of 3 of the children tested ate the marshmallow.

If the research had concluded at this point, its findings might well have been dismissed as neither surprising nor particularly interesting. But the marshmallow experiment was to become world famous because of the followup study that Mischel conducted with his child subjects when they reached the age of 18.
