BE READY FOR EMER­GEN­CIES

Golf Digest Middle East - - Play Your Best Curing Faults By Rick Smith -

Pi­lots train for emer­gen­cies so they don’t panic un­der pres­sure. Leav­ing the ball in the bunker is a golf emer­gency. You need a bul­let­proof, go-to process. I like S.F.T. (See, Feel and Trust). It’s a pre­de­ter­mined de­ci­sion that trumps panic. You see suc­cess, not dis­as­ter; feel calm, not tense; and trust, in­stead of doubt. Ev­ery week, tour play­ers prac­tice lots of sand shots. If they dump one dur­ing a round, they re­cover.
