Video Golf Tip | Practice With Pressure

Well that shot came out pretty nice. Part of practice is inviting pressure into the practice environment. An example would be that I have to hit another shot just like that to validate it. If I did not I would have to do it over again and keep practicing that shot until I got it right. Something you can do in putting for example is you can have 10 three footers that you have to make in a row from different parts of the hole. You need to make one more to validate that whole thing or else you have to start over again. What you are doing is you are inviting pressure into the practice environment and that is the same kind of pressure that you are going to be under on the golf course because you are going to have to make that three footer, you are going to have to hit this hundred yard shot. If you can practice it under pressure you are building a skill that will directly transfer to the golf course and allow you to execute. Let me see if I can do this shot again. Here we go. Well, that was ok, not great. I think I need to do it over again and keep practicing.
