How to Stay Calm Under Pressure While Playing Golf

Keep Your Composure While Playing Golf

The recent invention of portable biofeedback devices like the Stress Eraser have been very important in golf and baseball and some of the other sports. Players use these little devices to monitor their heart rate, to use their breathing to slow their heart rates down and to use their pre-performance techniques, their guided visual imagery and other specialized techniques that they use for mental training to slow themselves down, to improve their performance under pressure. I recommend to amateur golfers, players who want to compete who want to get better, learn how to control your heart rate, use your breathing to control your heart rate. It will make you a better player, especially under pressure.
