PUTT WITH A COLD HEART

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best - – Mor­ris Pick­ens, PhD

Some­times when you feel you re­ally need to make a putt, you have good in­ten­tions, but they get over­run with emo­tion. Through self-talk, you need to re­place emo­tion with ob­jec­tiv­ity, as if you were talk­ing to your­self like a com­puter. In­stead of say­ing, If I make this putt, I’ll go 2 up in my matc hand then I can tell all my friends about it in the bar, you should tell your­self, This is 10 feet, down hill, break­ing right to left. Hit a solid putt.
