i am right there with you, my friend. i've played in around ten tourneys thus far, and only one of them did i shoot what i would shoot in a casual round.
wow, its all been covered here. When I compete, I just think of it as a casual round to settle the mind. Pressure can be a killer!
It's Fun to play with the Crowd / Gallery cheering for you. Get's you pumped up ! Get's a bit nerve racking , but after a few times doing it , you will thrive on it !!! It's exciting and memorable.
Professional Athletes use relaxation techniques.
There are about 12 or so to choose from.
I use 4 different ones because sometimes one can fail (learn them one at a time).
They are on the internet everywhere-read up. Pick one, or more.
Just like your game...you have to practice with your new relaxation system.
Pressure my brother...pressure.Its the same reaction most people get when a cop pulls up behind them. Even if you havent done anything you feel suspect. Its that mental mind !@#$that will always garner higher scores. Wax on...you know the rest.
pressure can turn coal into diamonds, you just have to embrace it.
you got that right doggie
good reply...........v ery good
it is in your head... really... if the only difference is that it is a compeditive round ... a wise man told me ALL OF LIFE IS A MATTER OF 6 INCHES ... THE 6 BETWEEN YOUR EARS... dude just relax....
not sure how this goes.....
looked it up..
