If you hit some really bad shots and get upset, does your temper start to destroy the rest of your game or the rest of the round?
In this week's golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, responds to a question from Keith who had this to say about his game:
"I've been golfing for 50 years but I've gone from a solid 9 to scoring around 90. I hit some great shots but also some terrible ones including the occasional shank, but then I get so down on myself that my game goes to pieces. I can't control my temper which destroys my confidence, there by resulting in a downward spiral. Is there some way I can learn to stay more positive and control my temper?"
Listen to the podcast now to learn what Dr. Cohn has to say about controlling your temper during a round.
