The worst club in my bag is my brain. ~Chris Perry

The worst club in my bag is my brain.  ~Chris Perry.....

....very telling statement.  If you play golf or for that matter any sport you understand what this means....those negative, recurring thoughts, put downs, replaying the last shot in your mind when you should be focused  on how well your next shot will be. The tenseness of your muscles as you relive that last move, the should'ves and could'ves that only make you feel the rush of anger and adrenaline.     So what do you do about it..........?  How can you train your brain to allow your body and mind to move on?   "Every shot (hit, play) is in the past...reliving it in your mind will only make your muscles freeze up or  repeat the motion(s) that you were not happy with to begin with.     Practice relaxation methods...Tapping...and mentally rehearse the movements before you play the game.   A mental rehearsal has the same affect on your muscles as the real thing.  Get in the zone!!
