What have you done to get out of a funk?


Recommended Posts

I take time off.  I can't keep my bad habits fresh if I keep playing.

Well I went to the driving range yesterday... I hit well! still some bad shots here and there but not every club in the bag and my irons are back to being trusty! I am sure it was all mental.

I've just picked up the game in the past year or so (Lockdown golfer) and I've definitely hit a few ruts recently, for me I focus less so on things I'm trying to implement especially if I've taken some time off! (Even a week tends to throw me off a bit when I get back to it).

Slowing down my swing and just stripping everything back to basics has helped me massively! Especially when i'm caught up with 10000 different swing thoughts when things aren't going to plan

So a fun thing my coaches in other sports reminded me whenever I was in a rut is that "athletes need to be idiot savants." Absolute geniuses who know exactly what they need to do but can let their minds go blank right before a shot and immediately after every bad shot/bounce. 

The more we stack on our minds, the more things tend to spiral and compound. So slowing your swing down and going back to basics is perfect.

Play bad once forget it

Play bad twice, go to the range and review basics

Play bad a third time, go see your Pro

Usually if I have a funk that lasts more than 2 rounds I get a lesson or take a week off. That soft reset gives me a chance to forget the bad vibes and looking forward to getting back to the game.

My answer is to get to the range and work on fundamentals.  More often than not, your grip, your stance, your balance and tempo, and your alignment are contributing factors.  

If I have a bad round, I shrug it off and go out another day.  When I see a pattern, I have someone (not necessarily my coach) just watch my setup and fundamentals.  Having someone film your swing and then reviewing it is very beneficial.  Many times, what we feel isn't what is real.
