I stood on the 18th tee not aware of my score - it is recorded automatically through Arccos. I knew I was playing well (to my standards) but it didn’t feel lights out. There were some mishits, but they were saved. Some short putts that were missed. I didn’t even card a single birdie - which I have done in the past multiple time and still card in the high 80's, low 90's

I put a drive about 245 into the fairway - I am not a long hitter. I had 135 left to the front of the green, pin set 10 paces on. I stood over my bag and without thinking or making judgments, I let myself pull my 8i. On the range my 8 is my 150 club - but I took the ego out of the situation and trusted my feeling. I put a smooth swing on it and the ball just cleared the sand trap guarding the right of the green - pin high, 10 yards to the right of my target.

So, when stepped up the 18th green at Architects to take my 35ft birdie putt, I was surprised to see that I had shot a 75 through 17 holes and that if I carded a par here, I’d break 80 and my lowest round ever. I immediately got nervous and though there was no one to care about my score and no crowds watching me, I felt this perceived pressure mounting. Something I had avoided for 17 holes. I let my thoughts get the best of me and I left myself with a nerve-wracking 5ft left. I became acutely aware of my tense upper body so I took a deep breath and allowed my shoulders to relax. “This truly doesn’t matter one way or the other”, I told myself. I stepped up the ball after getting my read and I imagined the feeling of picking the ball out of the cup and took my shot. It landed true and I finished the hole with a par. 79.

While I celebrate that accomplishment, I know that some days will be better or worse than others and that I should not feel defeated if the next time I go out I shoot an 89. Expectation is the enemy of enjoyment.

Up until that round I hadn’t played 18 in 3 or 4 weeks. I had been to the range a bunch because I am one of those nuts that loves to practice. But practice has been different lately. Instead of trying to “perfect” a certain swing, or come more from the inside, or hitting the ball first, I am working to practice what I preach - learning how to feel and getting my mind in the right space to play. I am learning to trust that my body can make the swing that it needs to make to get the ball where it needs to be.

I was going out with little expectation on myself. The only thing I told myself as I played was trust your “learning self” and accept the uncertainty - because uncertainty is part of the fun. If I could control every shot, I’d be great but at the cost of not enjoying the game. I was great at my job and could control most aspects of the work I did, but I still quit because it didn’t bring me joy in doing it anymore. I don’t want golf to be a job. I’m here to have fun, release stress, and enjoy nature.

Accepting the uncertainty in turn allowed me to unconsciously loosen up as a played. And being loose allowed me to have a smoother, more athletic swing than normally wanting to control how I swing and tightening up.

I don’t know how often I’ll shoot that low, but I’m inclined to continue accepting the uncertainty and enjoying the game a little more. I know working on my mental game will make a larger impact for me than trying to engineer a better swing.

Solid work!

Just think about how many times you are at the local muni and you see some hack getting upset every time they miss an 10 foot putt.

Meanwhile, the average player on the PGA Tour makes only 52% of their 8 footers.  Under 20% for 15-20 footers.

Yet the guy that golfs two or three times a month and never practices has an expectation that he should make a 10 footer almost every time

This.

One of the guys at work didn't play for two years and expects to make everything inside 10 feet and gets upset when he doesn't. I've been working on convincing him about this stat to help him manage expectations. I'm not sure I'm getting through to him, but the times we've played together I've made sure to compliment him on his putting and let him know the make rate. 

We play a game that gets harder the closer we get to the hole.

Fantastic round and a great attitude.  It seems like the best rounds come when we are not cognizant of our score and enjoying the moment.  I know mine was.

It is amazing that stat, I know I get wrapped up in missing those 5-8' putts, and making a few can really change a round but realistically 2 putting those all day is good!

This mental side pops up from time to time, especially expectation management but it always a good reminder. To kick off next year I'll probably be digging out the Bob Rotella books I have as a refresher. Used to do this every year before the high school golf season, but it has been a while. That with stats like the one you mention above are the best.

I didn’t even card a single birdie - which I have done in the past multiple time and still card in the high 80's, low 90's

So, when stepped up the 18th green at Architects to take my 35ft birdie putt, I was surprised to see that I had shot a 75 through 17 holes and that if I carded a par here, I’d break 80 and my lowest round ever. I immediately got nervous and though there was no one to care about my score and no crowds watching me, I felt this perceived pressure mounting. Something I had avoided for 17 holes. I let my thoughts get the best of me and I left myself with a nerve-wracking 5ft left. I became acutely aware of my tense upper body so I took a deep breath and allowed my shoulders to relax. “This truly doesn’t matter one way or the other”, I told myself. I stepped up the ball after getting my read and I imagined the feeling of picking the ball out of the cup and took my shot. It landed true and I finished the hole with a par. 79.

While I celebrate that accomplishment, I know that some days will be better or worse than others and that I should not feel defeated if the next time I go out I shoot an 89. Expectation is the enemy of enjoyment.

Up until that round I hadn’t played 18 in 3 or 4 weeks. I had been to the range a bunch because I am one of those nuts that loves to practice. But practice has been different lately. Instead of trying to “perfect” a certain swing, or come more from the inside, or hitting the ball first, I am working to practice what I preach - learning how to feel and getting my mind in the right space to play. I am learning to trust that my body can make the swing that it needs to make to get the ball where it needs to be.

I was going out with little expectation on myself. The only thing I told myself as I played was trust your “learning self” and accept the uncertainty - because uncertainty is part of the fun. If I could control every shot, I’d be great but at the cost of not enjoying the game. I was great at my job and could control most aspects of the work I did, but I still quit because it didn’t bring me joy in doing it anymore. I don’t want golf to be a job. I’m here to have fun, release stress, and enjoy nature.

Accepting the uncertainty in turn allowed me to unconsciously loosen up as a played. And being loose allowed me to have a smoother, more athletic swing than normally wanting to control how I swing and tightening up.

I don’t know how often I’ll shoot that low, but I’m inclined to continue accepting the uncertainty and enjoying the game a little more. I know working on my mental game will make a larger impact for me than trying to engineer a better swing.

Reading your post brings back a flood of thoughts related to the changes we go through as golfers. Lucky for me my memory is still very sharp. Or maybe not so lucky!

The first few years I spent a 1/2 hour in the bathroom sick to my stomach thinking about hitting off the first tee. I'd get to the course and within minutes was off to the bathroom. Even though I was playing with friends there were always groups gathered to watch while waiting for their tee time. A few years later it was all ok but then nervous about getting paired up with strangers. Then you get into the why can't I break 100, then 90, 80, 70 (and that's where that ends). Then you always have that "If I par this last hole I will break "X". That was the kiss of death especially if there was a crowd at the clubhouse watching people hitting into the 18th hole.

But as I look at where I am now all those things have a way of working themselves out over time. Now I don't give a sh t. I welcome playing with strangers, I enjoy a crowd watching. Granted there was a lot of work involved to hone my game to be able to be comfortable in any situation. But it is interesting to see how you were when you started and how you have changed over time. 

Last week I was in a tournament and standing on the 18th tee box you could see all the other groups that had finished standing on the patio overlooking the 18th green. It was a par 4. My team had some balls in play but nothing great.  The crowd got my competitive nature up and I smoked one to within 60 yards of the green. The hecklers started as we got closer. "$20.00 he misses the green'.  It was a very elevated green with severe slopes surrounding the green, so I played to center. Executed to center. Then they started "double or nothing that they don't make the putt". I told the team I would putt first. They objected as I was the better putter and they wanted to give me the line. I turned and said I got this. A 32-foot putt with a right to left break. I drained it. (The big mouth welched on paying up).  But I teed up last and still went for it, took the first approach shot, and first putt because I had the confidence in myself that I could do it.

But the point is 30 plus years ago I would have crapped my pants but today I welcome the challenge. Trust in your abilities, don't second guess yourself, don't stress yourself out as this causes tension in the swing. Have fun as this is really what it is all about. (OK getting a trophy and a check is ok too!)

Golf is after all SUPPOSED to be FUN.  Loose as a goose.  When I feel myself tightening I think of the Three Stooges, who I grew up with in the 50s and 60s.  And I think of being a slingshot, a rubber band.  Good for you.  (I hope todays kids get a full measure of the Stooges and Daffy duck.)

Yeah that is awesome; great encapsulation of not just golf games/our golfing selves!

Enjoyed the whole post ... been trying to work on mental game/on-course attitude as that is definitely one of the bigger things holding me back....

Yeah that is awesome; great encapsulation of not just golf games/our golfing selves!

Enjoyed the whole post ... been trying to work on mental game/on-course attitude as that is definitely one of the bigger things holding me back....

It's certainly going to be a journey - doing it once isn't going to satisfy me very long haha

Good for you! Investing in your mental game is going to pay dividends. Shoot me a message if you want to talk about mental game coaching - my book is open for new folks.
