I' am a 11 Handicap (officially) As of recently i have been consistently shooting in the mid- to high 70's. I feel i am on the cusp of playing some really good golf. However I find it very difficult mentally to handle it. Great example, the last 3 or 4 holes. I can be shooting -2 or even a -3 going into 14. Then my nerves hit me. I almost become to excited that I may shoot a 72 or better and i end up taking a 7 or an 8 on one of the final hole then getting lucky if I bogey after that.
Mentally, I like to think i am fairly tough in regards to recovering from a bad hole. I generally play a round 3-holes at a time. If i am swinging bad I take the time to breathe and look around. It's just extremely difficult to shut off my mind that I am playing a good round with possibilities to score very well towards the end.
Any tips/advice would be great, Thanks!
