Billy Horschel on how to shine when it’s crunch time.

▶ Whether you’re try­ing to sink a three-foot putt to win a bet or play­ing for a $10-mil­lion bonus in the FedEx Cup, you’re go­ing to strug­gle if you let the mag­ni­tude of the mo­ment make you do things you wouldn’t nor­mally do. If you want to be clutch, my rst piece of ad­vice is to be your­self. Swing with the rhythm that feels most com­fort­able; use the clubs and play the shots you have the most con dence in; and stick to your rou­tines. Don’t try to con­cen­trate harder in those pres­sure mo­ments. In­stead, get out of your head and treat the tour­na­ment, round or shot as if it were a reg­u­lar day on the course. It’s part men­tal, part phys­i­cal:You’ve got to think clearly and have a sim­ple me­chan­i­cal cue. Here’s how to ap­ply that and play clutch in ve com­mon sit­u­a­tions. WITH RON KASPRISKE
