A very good and thoughtful talk,Dave ,precise,down to earth and constructive .It should help any golfer ,whether a champion ,a good golfer or a hacker.
As for myself,I have a simple way of dealing with my shots :
-if it was good ,I pat myself (mentally ) on the back and say to myself “Good shot ,Raymond” !
-if it was bad ,I just laugh at it ,and say to myself :”it was a bad shot ,so what ,OK ,let’s laugh at it and forget it “,and I do laugh out loud so my golf companions do hear me laughing .
As for the next shot ,I “rehearse “several times the swing to come so as to erase all previous bad feelings if the shot had been bad
Generally speaking ,you have to be a philospher and take the game as it comes:some days you are excellent ,some others you are just average ,some other days you are plain bad .
So what !Just accept that golf is unpredictable .
Look at great players :RORY McILROY pushed into water an easy shot with an iron on hole 17 of the DUBAI Open on Sunday November 22 ,he was unmoved and proceeded to play two more amazing short shots to finish with Bogey 4 to ANDY SUllIVAN “s par 3 score ,he still had a 1 shot lead going in hole 18.
He didn’t break up !
And he did finally win on hole 18.
A great lesson for us all !
Hey Dave; good lesson that goes beyond the links. Here’s my question; how do you internalize, remember and then duplicate a good shot? Thanks…
