I was reading on another Golf website the other day about a golfer that is a 3 handicap asking everyone what is needed to get to a 0 handicap. He further discussed that he had made to a 1 handicap at one point but regressed to a 3. This caused me to initially think, well his short game and putting game need more work....or he needs to make more consistent contact with the ball...or he needs more work on his long game....etc..etc...
Then a couple days went by and it occurred to me that those last few digits on the handicap meter are probably more about one's mental approach to the game of golf vs. anything technical.
Think about it, mental peak performance is now really a must at a scratch handicap level or even better. That is, the state of mind of relaxed, no fear, confidence as you move through each shot is required.
What do you think? Maybe I am off base with my thinking....However, I do not think so but I thought this might be an interesting discussion point since many of us are in search of being the best player possible.
Please chime in with your thoughts...Looking forward to reading your comments! I know there are some really great golfers in this community so many of us have encountered such a situation at least once or more in our golfer career!
