If only there was a way to stop our minds from working OT...
I've been there, done that, and no doubt, will do it
again...it's just normal human psyche...it's what
seperates us weekend warriors from the pros. Their ability to
focus, and not get ahead...I can't help but think
ahead...like if I par in from here, I'll shoot so &
It's different for every individual I think...I've shoot
74s and 75s whilst having fun with the rest of the guys, I've
also shoot the same score keeping to myself, and not interacting
too much with them...on the other hand, I've shoot 87,88,89
etc etc doing the exact same things...
You'll have to find a way to 'distract' yourself
between shots...mine is to carry a club with me between
shots...then I'll try and work on my grip...takeaway -
followthru...of coz this only works if you're carrying your
bag, and not on a pull cart. If I'm not using the
club...I'll just get my hands/arms to simulate the
backswing-followthru path...it keeps my mind on the basics rather
than what I could score etc etc...
But once you get into the flow, you'll tend to just carry
on...coz I don think you'll be thinking too much of your
score. Holes 4-14 are usually the bogey holes - where this
can happen...once you can get to 14, then you should be
right...in most cases anyway... :roll:
In my case, my bad is always comparing my best score for the nine
- and not playing the course. I've got to a stage where
I've hit 34s for both the front and back nine - and I'm
always using that as a yardstick - setting my score to
that...it's wrong...but can't help it.
I also cant seem to bounce back after a bad hole...it tends to go
downhill after that, coz I know I've just blown my
chances...bad...but also...can't be helped...
anyway...hope the tip helps...
