I tried that once too. I played a torunament and she was pissed that I was going so clearly I didn't get any the night before. I played great, so the next tournament I didn't even try the night before. I played terrible. She wasn't mad at me for this one so she asked how it went ad I told her terrible. The next three events went in my favor the night before and the dy of. Point is....whatever you beleive helps probably does for you.


Take it when you can get it. I always like 3am drunken sex the morning of a tourny. I guess that isn't practice but it seems to work for me.

Other than that I usually try to have something else on my mind while playing. It's odd but that really seems to help to me to a point. It kind of depends on what is on my mind.

No, I like to have other stuff on my mind. I usually forget about it while actually throwing; but while walking I always other things in my head. I hate it but it for some reason it helps.

Nevermind, don't listen to me my "rating" sucks.

Most extreme thing I have done is play putter rounds. Really teaches you to stay focused on the throw and not the score, and it also teaches you the truth about where you are projecting the energy from your throw. You will find afterwards that you throw further with less effort, aka smooth is power.


Btw that extreme comment was a joke...

Practice with one putter mold all week, then use a completely different mold for tourney.

ignore my friends when they called to play, when i'd see them at the course just give them a casual wave and continue with my round, so i could spend more time playing solo.

i feel like i learn more when i play alone and there are less distractions. i can focus easier on only what i'm doing and not what everyone else is doing

everyone thought i hated everyone for awhile

I play better under low pressure conditions when the clouds are closer to the ground and the air seems thicker and more stable compared to high pressures where the clouds are at higher elevations - the air seems thinner and more turbulent.

To learn how to throw controlled putter upshots without grip locking I started throwing them from 10 meters away and slowly backed out to 100ft as I improved.

Then I choked myself out with a leg triangle...
