Jim Fannin Show: A True Champion Builds a Culture of Success

For the University of Illinois Men’s Golf Team, the 2017 season was supposed to be what sports journalists often call a “rebuilding year.” Instead, head coach Mike Small took his team to the NCAA Championship for the 10th straight season and was honored as the Big Ten Coach of the Year.

In the golf world, schools in northern states, such as Illinois, tend to lag behind their southern competitors due to the difficulty of recruiting to a place where part of the season can be afflicted with bitter cold and wind. Not only has Coach Small built a world-class program with a top-notch facility, but he also stocks the program with young talent year after year. For the past 10 years, one or more of his charges has become a professional golfer and two team members have won the NCAA individual championship.

In this episode, Mike shares how using Jim Fannin’s S.C.O.R.E.® System helps the U of I men’s golf team “peak” at the right time and place during a grueling season that includes both fall and spring play. Even more importantly, he guides his young athletes to be true champions in every arena in life.

Coach Small also shares the secret on how coaching makes him a better pro golfer. This summer, Mike tied for 20th at the American Family Insurance Tournament on the PGA Champions Tour.

Plus, Jim taps into his experience coaching of top professional golfers. He breaks down the mental side of the game between athletes that make a mistake and quickly recover, and those who fall apart in the wake of an error. And Jim and Seth discuss why many teams struggle to find the Zone after a championship year.

Of course, Jim and Seth check out “Who’s in the Zone” this week, answer the Ask Jim Mailbag, and finally Jim guides you through the Zone Café.
