Trusting yourself is one of the most important aspects of life, both on and off the course. When it comes to golf, you must learn to trust yourself and your gut instincts, especially regarding your swing. When you learn to trust yourself under pressure on the course, your swing will come more naturally to you, helping you to succeed throughout your game. Here are some ways that you can work on trusting your instincts on the course:
1. Have a positive outlook When you are golfing, talk positively to yourself and to everyone surrounding you. If you have a negative outlook, you will most likely have a negative game. Know deep down that you can do it, be as confident as you can be, and get ready to crush the game! Showcasing confidence and positivity on the course will not only help you but will help those who are playing with you and may need that extra boost for their own game!
2. Practice, practice, practice The only way that you will learn to trust yourself is if you can truly believe in yourself. The more that you practice on the course or on the driving range, the more confident you will become from a physical and mental standpoint. Practice all aspects of the game – even the types of shots that you do not like – and you will see the magic start to happen!
3. Practice breathing techniques When something does not go your way on the course, focus on relaxing and focusing on your end goal. By playing at a steady and relaxed pace, you will stay motivated to finish out the game strong. You can enhance these types of skills by attending yoga classes, rolling your shoulders, and actively working to unclench your jaw.
