2 thoughts on “Mental Mondays: Follow The Rule of Five”

  1. I’ve read about the mental tricks athletes are working with. Golf is a sport where you need to concentrate. Sometimes I think I’m concentrating to hard, try to much. Maybe I should try your little tip.

  2. The “Rule of Five” is a good target when a player wants to shoot sub-100 consistently.  I no longer routinely use that goal except when I am having a particularly bad day on the course.  At those times, I revert to the “Rule of Five” to give myself an achievable target.  The most recent case was Pinehurst No. 2.  The green complexes were giving me a beating.  Once I rolled back my target from “par” to “five” I was able to relax and had a reasonable second nine.
