Example text

Again, the focus is on the result (thanks to the power of fear), when the focus should be on the process. Problem 4: Coming Out of the Shot The final way that nervousness translates into the golf swing is that golfers often pull out of shots early. They jerk or flinch and do not stay down through the golf ball. If you are someone who plays a lot of golf, then you are aware that the most common error when golfers lose their confidence and begin playing frightened golf is to block the ball out to the right.

But go deeper and it is just as easy to realize that this fear can fall away once we are willing to hear an answer to one of these moderately absurd questions. ” we are telling ourselves to look objectively at our particular uncertainty and deal with it thoroughly. In the case of fear of flying, for example, maybe it means reminding ourselves of the safety record of air travel, or even more simply, finding a way to deal with that uncomfortable moment of a flight (takeoff, let’s say) by focusing on a process (reading a book, listening to music, closing your eyes and meditating) that takes our mind away from an absurd fear.

Every golfer’s supreme challenge is to find a way to overcome this basic emotion that, even in the smallest doses, can undermine the soundest mechanical skills. The successful golfers play fearless golf. It’s not that they don’t experience fear, because as we’ve said, fear is natural, inherent in the human condition. Seeing that natural condition and overcoming it through a practical approach to success is the hallmark of fearless golf. As Tiger Woods has offered, fear may be real, but it is no match for the committed, confident golfer.
