Does anyone know where to find a good sports psychology course?

Guys i'm getting a bit sick of searching but does anyone know where I can find a REAL sports psychology course... I cant seem to find anything but cheap junk sites that look like my grandma slapped together. I'm sure others would be interested in finding the same thing! Help appreciated

Patrick Cohn has written several books specifically about golf. He knows his stuff.

Thanks, Ive checked out Mr Cohns stuff. Joined his membership a couple of years ago and got access to some articles. Was disappointing tho, I paid like $150 and got access to articles promoting other products. I would still be interested in checking out the CD's he has. They might be ok? Have you check out the confident athlete etc? Thanks for the post also. :D appreciate it.

Check out Amazon for books, you can find some good ones there. You could just get some basic psychology text books and learn the basics first as a background as well. Sometimes trying to understand specifics is tough with out the general concepts.

I bought his book "Peak Performance Golf" and skimmed through "Going Low" at a bookstore. I didn't pay for a membership, although I signed up to get his emails every once in awhile which sometimes include ebooks on golf-related subjects.

 I haven't found a REAL sports psychology course, but Bob Rotella's book "Golf Is Not A Game Of Perfect" helped me a lot. His follow up book "Golf Is A Game Of Confidence" is a bunch of anecdotal junk about how good his first book and his work with golfers. I recommend the first book very highly but I feel my money was wasted on the second.

Thanks guys. I guess I just have to go out and buy some books. Does not help that I'm a bit obsessive... I will end up starting a thread on here publishing my findings! ;)

found a book called THE WINNERS BIBLE! looks pretty good. The guy teaches F1 drivers sports psychology :D might help the golf i reckon.

I suggest any of Bob Rotellas books as well.

Certain colleges have a Sports Psychology course, often in the Psychology dept. rather than in Phys Ed. Courses in Economics of Sports would touch on similar topics, although at a societal rather than individual level.
