Recipe for Success
get happy on the course, by a guy who dropped 20 strokes overnight.
Play Holes on the Range
Scrape, hit. Scrape, hit. Don't mindlessly beat range balls pre-round. Instead, using your regular routine before
every swing, imagine playing the course's opening three holes. This
reduces the unhappy tension that can plague your first several swings.
To Your Personal Par
Change your course's par to reflect your ability, adding a stroke to the most
difficult holes. You're a 12 handicap? Your par 72 is now an 84. (Write
the new "par" for each hole on the scorecard.) This gives you a
realistic score to shoot for and helps your course Management.
for the Back of the Green
On approach shots, hit the club that, if struck
perfectly, will reach the back of the green. This brings more green
into play if you miss-hit the shot. Also, don't expect to rattle every
pin--the pros don't. The average leave on Tour from 100-125 yards is 21
feet from the hole, according to Shotlink.
And Let 'Er
Standing over the ball, find a swing thought that helps you commit to the
shot. A positive thought wards off fear about where the ball will go.
Remember, it's going to come down somewhere.
