- worry about our score
- concern about our swing
- thinking about upcoming holes
And that’s only a start!
A great mindset to overcome this thinking is to say to yourself:
What do I need to do on this shot?
That one question will make you refocus on the shot at hand. You’ll instantly forget about all the garbage and be focused on the important stuff. Like swinging freely and playing automatically.
This is how you play one shot at a time. And it leads you into a process that will help you make the most of each shot you play,
- How far away from the hole am I?
- What is the wind doing?
- What club do I need to hit?
There’s no room for distraction and at it’s heart is the source of positive thinking.
Focusing on the task at hand.
