    Default Mental game for the single handicappers

    With the recent lessons I had, and the changes made to my swing, I have seen some improvements to my scores and approaching the single digit handicap goal of mine.

    So I am hoping to find out from all the Ozgolfers here who have played single digits how you approach the game?

    I am not a long hitter (Drive average around 220m while my 7i is 140m ), so I know most of the time I will need to rely on my short games to aim for a chip and a putt to get my par. Last few good rounds I had I know it could have been better if I had not missed those easy short putts, so thats something I have to work on.

    The hardest part for me is the mental game now. I know I should take every shot as it comes and not worry about the last shot (good or bad), but it's kind of hard not to dwell on it after a double bogey and I keep thinking I only have 5 shots available in this 9.

    so how do you guys play the game? what areas do you work on?

    I just marked a cross 4 feet from a couple of holes and spent a heap of time knocking putts in. It was really helpful for confidence, but let's see how it goes on the course.

    It really does take a bad putt to miss from 4 feet. My record was 43 in a row, and the misses were because my mind was wandering.

    Do you reckon you made a small groove there hitting putts from the same place Andy?

    It needs more sand, as it is way too fast.

    Mine needs a reno as well. I’ve been wetting mine and giving it a brush with a firm bristled broom, I need the broom attachment for my Stihl.
