If you've played golf a while you've heard practice makes perfect.
Here's the bad news.
Keep reading for the good news.
Have you ever had a day on the course where everything goes just right? Tee shots are straight and far. Putts were true and short. The sand wedge was left in the bag. No hooks or slices.
And Cheap Brad Wing Jersey , if Tiger was in your foursome, you would have beaten him? Almost.
Then, the next time you played, you couldn't do anything right? Hooks. Slices. Traps. Short putts that got longer. Topped tees shots.
What was the difference in the two rounds?
You know how to play golf. Any golfer that's been playing for a couple of years knows the fundamentals of golf. You know where to put your feel, how to swing the club, how to putt, and what club to use.
What's the big difference in the two rounds?
The answer is simple. And, now, believe it or not, the solution is easy.
On the good day you were hitting from "The Zone". The one you try to get into on every shot. On the good day you managed to get into it on some shots. If it was a great day, you got into it on most shots. On the bad day the only zone you could find was the twilight zone.
But there's another zone perhaps just as important in golf. The "Comfort Zone". And, you're about to learn how you can lower your's.
What do you normally shoot? Eighty? Ninety? Hundred? Whatever it is, that's your comfort zone.
All you have to do to lower your handicap is to change your comfort zone.
The problem with the comfort zone is that it has nothing to do with how well you know the fundamentals or techniques of golf. If you've been playing a while you know them. And, I'm assuming you do.
Instead, it has everything to do with how good a golfer you think you are.
If you "think" you're 20 handicapper that's what you are. If you think 10 that's your handicap. Think 5...be 5.
Do you believe Tiger thinks he's a five handicapper? Not on your life.
He thinks he's a minus five so he's the world's greatest golfer. Maybe of all time.
So how good of a golfer do you think you are? More important, how do you change your thinking?
Ron Johnson, of Seattle, Washington, thought he was a 90 golfer. Until he changed his thinking and started shooting rounds in the mid 70s.
I'll let Ron explain
"My statements began something like..."even though putting is extremely frustrating Cheap Andre Williams Jersey , I still completely accept myself." I would practice on the putting green with 10-twenty foot putts, 10-ten foot putts and 10-five foot putts. Each time, I would go through the nine-step process with the same statement..."Even though these putts are nerve-racking, I still completely accept myself." I found that I began to feel much more confident over the putts and some actually went in the cup. Three-putts to get the ball in the hole began to disappear and, within three months, my average scores went from 95-100 down to 85-90. I've had many rounds in the 70's during the past year and I am now setting a goal of shooting below 70. The process works equally well with each shot in the game, not just the putter. In fact, I now use the process before beginning the round with the following statements: "Even though I am filled with apprehension on this round, I completely and totally accept myself."
Statements? Completely accept myself? What is this new age stuff?
Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT. You've probably read about it in the golfing magazines at the club house.
Ron was so impressed with what EFT did for his golf game he started coaching golf using EFT.
One of his students dropped his "average putts per round" from 37 to 29. Another golfer knocked an average of 5 to 6 strokes per round off of her score.
How did they do that? They changed their "Comfort Zone using EFT.
What is this EFT you've been reading about in the golfing magazine and online?
Gary Craig, a Stanford trained engineer, who developed Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, explains.
As he states on his world wide headquarters web site, "EFT is based on a new discovery that has provided thousands with relief from pain, diseases and emotional issues. Simply stated, it is an emotional version of acupuncture except needles aren't necessary. Instead, you stimulate well established energy meridian points on your body by tapping on them with your fingertips. The process is easy to memorize and is portable so you can do it anywhere. It launches off the EFT Discovery Statement which says...
"The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system."
He goes on to say:
"All of the discoveries of modern physics, from Einstein on, support the ancient theory that a universal energy flows through everything in nature http://www.nygiantsteamshop.com/ ," says Gary Craig, a Stanford-trained engineer. "This energy, called Qi or Chi, flows through the body along paths called meridians. Anything that stimulates points along these meridians helps the energy flow freely. Acupuncture uses needles, acupressure uses massage, and EFT uses fingertip tapping. By combining the tapping with focused thought, you can release energy blocks that interfere with a good night's sleep. In countless clinical cases, EFT has helped people fall asleep and stay asleep, even in times of stress and adversity.
What can EFT be used for? For one thing, lowering your golf handicap.
