Walking to the first tee every golfer feels an awakening of sorts. Whether you are a scratch handicap or a beginner you are aware of the moment. As we watched the world’s best players prepare and strike the opening tee shots this morning at the 43rd Ryder Cup, we can learn from the world’s best on how to handle that moment.
All pressure is self-induced. We can prepare ourselves for the first tee experience with three small keys. Believe it or not, it will not be a swing key that gets that ball off its perch.
1. Start your preparation by visualizing the setting and your feelings.
2. All successful players take advantage of a set pre-shot routine.
3. Control your heart rate.
Walk slowly, focus on that routine and see your success. Follow those three keys and you’ll be more than ready to embrace the moment at the start of your round.
