Mental control of your golf game is a developmental process. It starts with having fun playing the game. That does not mean you have to be good to enjoy the game but it helps. A simple mantra that best describes playing the game of golf is that golf is a game of total relaxation, then total concentration. See the shot, feel the shot, trust the shot. As your golf IQ improves, so will your golf game. Trust and confidence comes from focused practice and setting specific goals. Keep it simple and achievable.
