Stop Caring for More Control

It’s extremely common for golfers, pro or amateur, to have a hole or holes that they routinely play poorly. You know the ones; they aren’t just adding bogeys to the scorecard. In fact, it’s closer to a total meltdown. Hitting drives into the weeds, skulling chips, leaving balls in the bunker, and finishing things off with a putting exhibition might resemble slapstick comedy more than respectable sport.

 

So, the next time you tee up on your personal problem hole, pretend it’s a brand-new hole. Maybe, select an iron instead of driver; perhaps, lay up short of the water hazard you normally try to carry. But most important of all, try not to care what anyone thinks of your approach.
