Figure out why you’d a bad hole or two. Positive and negative thinking aside, swing mechanics can make or break a hole or whole round of golf. Rapidly evaluation every shot following a bad hole. Identify if your swing is too long– or brief– and adjust on the next hole. Determine if you’re drawing your head or body off the ball, which modifies the direction of any shot.

Stay Calm

Be Realistic

Understand the challenges of playing golf, and expect to fail on a hole or more throughout every round.

Pro players have short memories and hardly ever let a bad hole or more wreck the entire round. They stay with the original strategy and progress.
