NO TAR­GET? THINK ONE UP

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best - RICHARD COOP, ED.D.

Golfers o en take chances with­out re­al­is­ing it. When I worked with Payne Ste­wart, we talked a lot about OTEs (op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­cel). When he hit his ball into trou­ble, his in­stinct was to play the hero shot. He learned that just get­ting back in the fair­way can be a good shot. Imag­ine a green in the fair­way and “hit” that green. Hav­ing a clearly de­fined tar­get helps you stay on task.
