There is another forum discussion concerning bad game remedies. Several comments said to treat each round like a tournament round.
Here's my problem. I love to play rounds alone. I get to work at my own pace, and, therefore, develop a rhythm. The rhythm can get broken if I have a bad shot, but usually can recover the rhythm quickly and do okay.
Tournament rounds, though... I have never gotten used to Person A, then B (I'll insert myself here), then C, then D... Then furthest away (C), then A, then D, then B... and so on and so forth completing each hole... No rhythm is developed.
This holds true for my days of traditional golf. I could play pretty doggone good on my own, but add two or three others, and the rhythm is gone.
The question is, how is the best way to prepare for tournament play where you never can develop a true rhythm? The waiting for others between shots "interferes" (not meant to sound bad, but couldn't think of any other word) with my brain, and I start thinking about the upcoming shot and rethinking and second-guessing. How is do you keep from second-guessing shot selection? If I over think, then I am bound to perform poorly on that shot, and what rhythm there was, is completely gone.
