Well it’s not a far stretch to practice some of the same mental discipline in your own game while playing with your friends. Through this blog segment this week we will discuss different techniques to keep your round going throughout the day.
- Positive Affirmations are probably the most important things you can do during your round. Maintaining a good “vibe” during your round is paramount to maintaining good play. -Repeat these sayings before every golf shot or just while you are driving down the fairway:
>”I am a good player and I hit good shots”
>”Putting is easy and I always hit my putts on my line”
>”I like hitting good golf shots”
>”I always hit it where I aim” These are a few quick things to say to yourself during the round.
Now some of you might be thinking “Well I don’t always hit it where I am” or ” I’m really not the best putter” and these are valid concerns, but it is important that to stay positive throughout the entire round and to keep those positive ideas in your mind. Maintaining positive “vibes” during your pre-shot routine and during your round will keep your confidence up even when you are not playing your best.
