BE READY FOR EMERGENCIES
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.
