About Underpin

Mental performance coaching for Elite Amateur & Professional Golfers

We work closely with ambitious elite amateur and professional golfers, helping them to develop the mental strength and resilience needed to succeed at the highest levels of the sport.

Why Underpin?

Unlock your potential

Our philosophy is centred around coaching through experience, unlocking people’s potential and creating higher levels of performance.

Through our own calm, assured and flexible style we are able to work beneath the surface, challenging players to learn and understand how to get the best out of themselves and their game.

We combine our own unique skills and experience with world renowned coaching models which have decades of proven success at the highest levels of sport. Our goal is to help players to score as well as possible, have the best experience while competing and learn something valuable while playing.

To achieve higher levels of performance we can help bring focus and development to areas such as:

  • Daily habits, routines and behaviours
  • Self-confidence and core beliefs
  • Emotional awareness
  • Mindfulness practice

“The key to our approach is creating a relationship of trust where individuals are comfortable to share their experiences, thoughts, feelings and the internal relationship with themselves. This allows us to help them become more self-aware and more equipped to manage themselves and their emotions when competing at the highest levels. Our goal is to enable them to become calmer and more focused in competitive environments and allow their best performances to come through. Ultimately creating higher performing, mentally healthier human beings."

Greg Robertson, Underpin founder & Mental Performance Coach.
