We all draw inspiration from the winners and leaders of the biggest golf tournaments. Jon Rahm may not have been your favorite to win Masters but you must have been impressed by his ability to control his emotions. Wind, rain and cold affected every player’s performance, but Jon endured it all. WHY JON AND MANY OTHER TOP PERFORMERS WERE CLOSE TO CUT LINE W THIS RBC HERITAGE TOURNAMENT at the end of the first day of the game?
Controlling your emotions and self-confidence are the keys to success
Every professional golfer saw the $20,000,000 prize money at RBC Heritage, so everyone was motivated to succeed. All pros also aim to win their first professional golf tournament or become the best golfer of the year in order to win important endorsement deals.
As a recreational golfer no pressure to win big money, still want to improve your scores and maybe win a friendly match for a few dollars. The thrill of perfecting your game and winning continues to be the driving force that keeps you coming back for the next game. So what should you do to control your emotions and build your confidence?
1/ Practice: Get professional help and practice at the shooting range. Know your weaknesses and focus on the best solutions to improve your next round of golf.
2/ First T-shirt shocks: Get to the course early and spend your time hitting balls with different clubs and putting. Sit back with your practice shots and choose the swing that suits you. I find the 3ft takeaway swing makes my body rotate properly for my actual swing.
3/ Avoid mistakes: You’ll get better contact with the ball if you practice your swing at the same speed you want to make your shot. Don’t lose your sense of this training swing. Just walk over and hit the ball at the same speed.
4/ Hitting from rough terrain: Use an iron. The deeper, the more uneven, to escape you need a lofty club. Don’t hit long distance escape. Just bring the ball back to the fairway.
5/ Missing short putts: Professionals only sink 30% of their putts between 10 and 15 feet on average. Delay your putts within 4 feet of the hole. Practice MORE short putts to avoid 3 putt greens.
6/ Missing long putts: Keep them close and DON’T EXPECT THEM TO SINK. Take iron lessons to get closer to the hole and bring the chippings closer.
