We all know the mental game plays a huge role in being successful at any sport, but this is especially true for golf. Yet, a lot of times, we lose our ability to stay positive.
I'm here to tell you that you must always look at every shot in a positive way, otherwise you'll end up where you don't want to be. If you're constantly worried about where you DON'T want to hit the ball, you're more than likely going to hit it there.
Your brain does not work with negatives. If you tell yourself not to do something, your brain is instantly going to be focused in on that. It’s just like saying don’t think of an elephant. What’s the first thing you think about? An elephant!
So, remember to stay positive out there. It's even more important when you're not playing your best golf. Don't give up, visualize where you WANT to hit it, and execute.
Keep it vertical!
