The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
so, about a week ago, i went out to my local course and beat the HELL out of my personal best by six strokes!!! A par 54 18 hole setup that i couldn't break par on and, all of a sudden, i shoot 6 under par with 5 60 footers made in one day. I understand that most of it was a strong mixture of luck and timing but since then, i haven't made a putt from 30 feet within a week...
I guess what I'm asking is, how do you guys rise above it? I've been reading Zen Golf, but to no avail...
I know pretty much all it is is that I'm psyching myself out, but it scares the hell of of me that I can practice from 20 feet away and miss 3 out of 4...
Well congrats on the good Round Dave! I love those days.
I have read Zen Golf twice now. It helps me deal with my screw ups and get over them. Playing one shot at a time, more or less. But, it hasn't affected my scores a ton. BUT, I am trying to stick with it and use the methods outlined in the book. I seem to have more fun when I do, and I ALWAYS play better when I am having fun instead of being pissed off. Lol. I am good at that. :)
I notice when I do my putting practice, I am MUCH more consistent and relaxed then out on the course. I make a lot more putts at the practice basket than on the course, until lately. I started realizing how much more I think when putting during a game than practice. So, I started making sure I line up, don't think about it, and putt. Just like practice. I am putting MUCH better on the course since doing this.
