  1. Hi Dave, What do you call it when there is something you don’t want to do and then do it? Example: playing the 18 th fairway and have used just one golfball for the round. Third shot and you think, put this on the green and I will be safe. Instead you pull it hard left almost in a water hazard that is not even in line with green.
    Thanks Mike

  2. Hi Mike!
    Great to hear from you.
    Great question. Here’s the deal. From my experience…even though you thought you’d like to hit the safe shot–there is usually a “Don’t go….” kind of thought lurking underneath. THAT thought is the one “playing out” and often why we hit the poor shot.

    Remember, the mind doesn’t respond to the word, “Don’t”. so whatever you put after that is the message you’re sending yourself.

    For example, “Don’t go left” is interpreted by your mind as “GO LEFT”. because the word, “Don’t” does not register.

    I know it sounds funny but that’s what happens.

    Your post started out with >>>What do you call it when there is something you don

    Pressure for me happens because I fear doing something wrong. My hands get cold and I start thinking of what someone else will think if I make a mistake. I am now going to try your way of thinking about pressure and turn it inside out. Thanks for your expertise…

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
