Help Golfers Bounce Back After A Low Round
Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the “Golfer’s Mental Edge” CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf using golf psychology strategies developed over the last 20 years of his career.
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 a golfer, who wants to know how to follow up a low round with another low round.
COHN: “Do you struggle following up a low round with another good round?… Here’s a question from Matt, “Even the pros have a hard time shooting a good round or a low round after they have had one of their best rounds in the tournament. How do you help golfers bounce back or perform well after one of their career low rounds or best rounds on their succeeding or next round?”
“Matt, this is a great question…I put all this under the topic category of comfort zones. Let’s say you’re in a 3 day or 4 day tournament and you go out the first round and you shot a career low round. You shot in the mid-60s and everything was just working for you. You’re driving the ball well, you’re hitting a lot of greens, the ball is rolling in the hole, so you’re making some putts. And everything felt easy and everything felt good. But then typically what happens the next day is you’ll go out there and shot maybe in the mid-70s. There’s a ten shot difference from your first round and second round. Well what’s up with that? Why would you shot ten shots different in your second round when you’re playing well in the first round? Like I said, I believe it’s a comfort zone issue…”

“WOW!!! What a week I had. I was able to perform with a confidence that allowed my style to shine through–no more entering the arena with that “deer in the headlights” look or feeling. I stopped evaluating myself while I was performing, and I actually left the arena after my patterns feeling like I had experienced a lot of fun. Thank you so much.”
