Golf Psychology

LPGA Master Professional, Deb Vangellow helps you to identify and understand what happens to you when you suffer from nerves on the golf course.
by Deb Vangellow

Nervousness. It is inevitable. All the great ones have felt it…in every athletic endeavor that means something to them.  Champions learn how to deal with the effects of nervousness and may even be addicted to them.  If you can understand what is happening to your body during these times, you can make nervousness your ‘friend’.

Identify and understand what happens to you when you suffer from nerves on the golf course.  Then, work on ways that you can combat these nerves…things that work for YOU.  Stress is healthy and nervousness is common and ‘normal’. Here are some ideas to help:

Slow down. The more you hurry, the worse it could get.

Keep it simple. Don’t overload yourself with swing thoughts or a complicated strategy.

Stay fit. If you are in shape, your nerves will be too.  Besides exercise, watch your eating habits and stay with what works for you.

Keep it predictable. On tournament days, stick you your usual habits and be yourself.  Following a set routine isn’t just a good idea for your daily regimen, it is ideal for every shot.

Rely on social support. Interaction with playing partners and friends may help you react better to stress.
Don’t think about the consequences or outcomes. Think target rather than technique.

Think happy. Think only positive things, even if they are unrelated to the shot at hand.  A positive thing you can think of when playing is a successful shot…use visual imagery to “see this” perfect shot before you swing.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
