Manage your state and you'll manage to play well
Is your mental state prepared? Have you rehearsed your mental game approach to your round???
You're standing on the 1st tee, psyched to play. You casually set the ball on the tee and back off from the ball. "Geez," you say to yourself, "I can barely feel the club in my hands". You step to the ball without even a half-hearted commitment to a pre-shot routine.
You're an accident waiting to happen.
Your heart is pounding now and nerves course through your veins. "Ok, let's just blast this one and get it over with" you say with the hopes of shedding your nervousness. Swooosh! Clank. Boing.
Hmm, it looks like the accident just happened...
You don't even want to watch as the odds are your lie won't be great after rattling around those trees.
Ahh, such is the game of golf. Managing your state is of paramount importance at each stage of your golf game. Seasoned pro or rank beginner. The game is won and lost within your mind.
It's all a state of mind...
