Ever heard of the pre-shot routine “SFT?” It means “see, feel, and trust.” See the shot. Take practice swing of the sort that will produce a successful shot. And then trust your club, swing, and ability. Oh, and then stay in the moment.
O.K. Now, for the average golfer, I’d say that the norm is what I’d call “WOD.” This means “worry, obsess, and disappear.” Worry about everything, especially how your foursome sees you. Obsess about the swing mechanics emphasized in the same magazine that told you about “SFT.” And then disappear from the shot as if you had a transient ischemic episode and blanked out completely.
