Video Golf Tip | Tournament Preparation

We happen to be filming this right before the US Open, probably the most stressful tournament situation in all of professional golf. My job as a trainer, as a sports psychologist, is to create a system or a set of drills or tasks that are going to help those players perform under the special intense pressure of a US Open. Heat, long rounds under the most pressure, on television, all of the greatest most pressurized situations. What I will do this week is ask players to taper their physical practice, go out and play nine holes. Play a round simply with your wedges and putter. Most of the game, as we know, is played around the greens. Your score is mainly accounted for by the things you do inside 100 yards. So that is what we will be doing this week in the afternoons at Tory Pines is going around the golf course with wedges and putters and hitting a lot of game like shots under conditions.
