Since this is a real first year that I’ve been playing, I play by myself. My biggest distraction in the morning are the maintenance men. Leave blowers and lawnmowers… Loud!
Also they are supposed to stop so you can make your shot but how annoying when they just watch you while I’m trying to make a beginner swing.
Good thing about it is that I’ve received a couple compliments. One on my swing and one I made a par three and he said good shot!

You have to get used to these distractions. I don’t mind lots of or continuous noise. It is when it is quiet and someone makes a noise that blows my concentration.
Don’t worry about them watching you. They have seen a million swings and are not even paying attention.

The compliments are telling you that you are getting it. This will continue long into the future.

Paul is there a tip about ball position with the driver I notice in some of your video’s it looks like when you set your feet with the driver you take a pretty good sized step with your left foot

Hi Paul, I too used to try to ignore distractions and continue to hit – 99% of the time I regretted it, so I have learned to be patient, stop, regroup my focus and restart my pre-shot routine – I no longer care if my playing partners are annoyed by this 🙂

Exactly. It is tough to start over but if you are not 100% before you hit your shot it is highly likely the outcome will be poor. Glad you are starting to not care about others. It is your game not theirs.

I have done this when I am distracted for whatever reason (most of the time)…STOP…RESET/FOCUS…HIT!
My challenge is, if it is someone I am playing with making chatter, noise, movement, whatever…then I have a another distraction in my mind to not be upset with that person and “LETTING IT GO.”
It’s like a double edge sword…Yikes!!! LOL!!!

Give them a dirty look then get back in your zone. It’s tough but after you keep getting in this zone it becomes easier.
