This happens to me all the time, i’m about a 20 handicapper but making rapid progress using Pauls excellent teaching methods. I am now starting to make consistent parrs and some bogies then every round i’ll get the card wrecker 8 then another 8 then get so angry because i have played well then ruined the scorecard with a few bad holes out of 18.
Is this just being part of being a higher handicap golfer that i can play well mostly then go to bits or is it possibly me worrying to much about having the card wrecker that makes me have them?

Yes, it’s what happens to 20 handicappers and is part of the “maturation” process.
AND…yes again–thinking about your “card wreckers” is a recipe for making them happen more!–When one knows the actual laws that guarantee that kind of outcome–they know how to not only avoid them but generate something better as well (not a shameless “plug”–but the simple truth).
You’re doing just fine!.

THIS IS A VERY HELPFUL LESSON.

I find myself getting mechanical when things go bad. It sometimes helps with my swing but my feel goes out of my game, especially around the green and I can’t hit shots with the necessary touch. I play best when I have enough confidence in my stroke that I can focus on landing areas and touch.

Thanks David. Just a great lesson about stopping and re-grouping.
I have read Wited to Win and it is such a great book with so much good information to incorporate into golf and life.
