1. Pay no attention to your score after you enter each hole's score.  Surprise yourself at the end of the round - not halfway through. 

2. Your last shot, good or bad, has no bearing on your next shot - unless you let it. 

3. Pick a longer club for each shot - never count on getting your best yardage with any one shot.  Heros die on the battlefield - don't try to be a hero.

4. Take a deep breath before pulling a club.  Analyze your options and keep clear of danger in your shot selection (see #2). 

5. Your job is to make your next shot, the number of errant shots you avoid improves your score.  Let someone worry about making a 75, or paring a hole or getting a birdie.

6. The game is supposed to be fun.  Enjoy every minute - even the shank into the swamp.

Hi Adam,

 

Some good advice from Don O.

Play each individual shot as thought it's the last golf shot you are ever going to hit in your life. After that, go find your ball. Then, regardless of the result (good, bad, or indifferent), play the next shot as thought IT'S the last golf shot you are ever going to hit in your life. This goes for each and every shot (off the tee, approaches, putts). When you finish your round you'll be surprised.

Good luck.
