3 thoughts on “Mental Mondays: Know Your Distances”

  1. The advice about knowing one’s distances is spot on, especially the “carry”.  If one plays courses with significant bunkering or forced carries, knowing how far the ball goes on the fly is crucial.  Ocassionally playing when a course is very wet is a good check on one’s “carry” distances.  It does not help the ego but it gives you a good read on how far the ball travels without any roll.

  2. I’ve always thought the game of golf was more mental than anything else.  Although talent goes a lot way, you need to have the right attitude when out on the links.

  3. Great idea for a series!  And a great start!  Couldn’t agree with you (and the commenters) more.  Looking forward to the rest and getting smarter about my game. smile
