Excellent tip – the critic is a killer, so “keep your enemies close to you” applies here – I like the idea of embracing of the critic and de-personalising their message. I will try it asap – on the range and when playing,
YES–depersonalizing it is important–it’s not you and never was–it’s just a “voice” that left to it’s own devices will “play on”. Embrace it and it loses steam–fight with it and it loves that and gets LOUDER AND LOUDER.
Let me know what happens!

This one hit close to home for me. When playing well, the voice is let the group watch this putt drop.
My hang up is my pre putt routine, it’s a little different in that I like my stance open, left foot off line behind right foot putt line. Make putts all day practicing chips with wedge leading edge, from everywhere on green.
In a round, My voice inside starts to question what the group thinks of the unorthodox set up, causing a short of quick putt pace.
How do you block out a style of equipment that doesn’t conform to the average golfers?
