Advice for Mental Strength?
It’s kind of different for everyone. One thing I learned from my coach especially is the importance of meditation and taking some time for yourself and being able to find a quiet place in your head. It’s tough. We have so much distraction—cell phones, iPads, everyone’s always on something or Facetiming, or doing so many different things, and a lot of time you’re not just able to be with yourself and your thoughts. And when you’re on the golf course, that’s a majority of your time. And if you’re not practicing that, it’s easy to lose. Especially under pressure and when you’re feeling nervous. There are things that make you uncomfortable, so it’s really important to practice mental strength. And also be kind to yourself. Golf is really hard, especially from a mental standpoint, so you can’t beat yourself up whenever you make a mistake or do something wrong.
