I am still trying to win my forst OPEN PDGA event. I have come close a few times. Last weekend I threw the hot round of the tourney (2 rounds, C-tier) in the first round. I had a 2 stroke lead on 2nd place, and finnished the second round 6 strokes worse than my first round. I ended up in 3rd place, cashing $165. It was a great day! BUT...
I feel like I could have won! It is all mental at this point. Its been an off year due to the birth of my little girl, but I have put the time in, and now i want the payoff. I just want to hear a few words of wisdome from the guys out there who have actually become winners. What is going through your head when you have the lead and you are trying to pull off the win? How did you change your mentality to become a winner?
Based on my performance, I need to work on my stamina and mental tuffness. I let a few mistakes echo in my head throughout the second round. I failed to make adjustments when my body started to tell me I was getting tired. I feel like its my attitude. What is the attitude of a winner?
turn off the little voice in your head
