Hitting over hazards in golf can be a real problem. A golfer might check the wind and the slopes and plan their stroke, but like a throbbing pain or a mosquito buzzing past your ear, certain obstacles can be a real pain. How can you make sure you overcome these hazards every time?
Play to Your Best
You’ve performed to your optimum all day and it’s your moment to shine, but your mind is clouding over. The hazards are flashing like emergency signs on the highway.
A golf swing is at its best when it’s natural and relaxed because a clearer mind gives a cleaner connection. Sometimes the real obstacle is not on the course but in your mind.
Why is it that when we see open fairway, we feel calm? Our minds are uncluttered and it couldn’t be a simpler game, yet when obstacles appear, we are filled with dread. Our back stiffens, the pulse quickens, dry hands become clammy and our grip tightens on the club, but we don’t feel in control of the shot. Does this sound familiar?
We’ve probably all stormed off from a shot, a hole or even a round, vowing that we’ll never play again. This is par for the course – but it doesn’t need to be like this.
Relish The Challenge
Hazards are built to trip us up and complicate our journey from tee to green. If we just wanted to smack the ball, we’d go to the driving range. If it was just about the glory, we could sink the ball all day on putting greens. We crave the challenge, we play golf to be tested and we embrace this most rigorous examination.
Sport is all the mind – especially individual sports. Time on a golf course is mostly walking and waiting, and it’s a relatively short period where you need total focus and can’t allow outside distractions in. Your mind must be there in the moment, present and totally determined to nail the next shot.
