Chances are you won’t have too many chances to play in a celebrity golf tournament in Wesley Chapel, Florida, but if you do, you don’t want to end up head-butting your famous partner. However, remaining calm and preventing a Happy Gilmore style freakout isn’t always as easy as it sounds. If you aren’t playing up to your skill level, are having trouble concentrating, or just need some meditation on the links, here are three tips to help you.
Let It Go
Most people who lose their cool on the course do so because they hit a bad shot or a series of bad shots. What makes this situation so frustrating is that you know you can do better. However, you shouldn’t let it get the best of you. Even professionals make poor shots from sometimes. It’s part of the human element to the game, and if you can’t let it go, you’re in for a rough day on the course.
Become Your Own Coach
Negative thoughts can adversely affect one’s game. Instead of putting yourself down when you miss a shot, become a good coach. This means that you should analyze your swing, what caused you to play a poor shot, and what you can do to fix it. Coupled with positive thoughts and strategies for the next shot, becoming your own coach is an awesome way to improve your next stroke.
You’re in Control
Golf is a tough and yet interesting sport because there’s no one else to place blame on or rely on to get the job done. It’s just you. This fact makes the game mentally taxing. However, remembering that you have the reins can allow you to relax. It’s all about how you respond to a shot or a given scenario.
