Shoot Lower Scores
Without knowing the answer to this question, it will make it extremely difficult to improve as a golfer and shoot lower scores on the golf course.
The first thing to recognize is that your personality traits should translate to behavior on golf course. If you walk slow in your everyday slow, walk slow in between shots on the golf course. Do not let your playing competitors dictate your routine on the golf course, go at your own flow! Be yourself and this will lead to the most success on the golf course!
In order to understand yourself as a golfer, ask yourself these questions:
(tip: use positive language when answering the questions.)
How would you describe yourself as a player?
What is your golf swing?
Feel or technical?
What is your go to shot?
What is your miss?
What do you do well mentally?
What do you need to improve mentally?
What is your strength?
What is your weakness?
Physical traits – strong, weak, flexible, high stamina for more practice?
What is your game plan to improve?
Mental game golf tips for your success:
- If you are emotional, be emotional on the course. Yes, I said emotional! But if you get mad at yourself for hitting bad shots, remember to pat yourself on the back for your good shots. Make sure the emotion only lasts for one minute or less before letting it go and relaxing in between shots. There needs to be a steady balance of emotions.
- Play to your strengths. You can avoid your weaknesses for the most part. If you are bad from 20-60 yards from the green, then never lay up to those distances. Lay back to the yardages that you are best at.
- Work on your weaknesses. It is your goal to play to your strengths, but you also need to work on your golf game weaknesses to improve them for when you have no choice but to play that uncomfortable shot.
Hopefully this golf blog topic will help you understand your game and shoot lower scores on the golf course!
