I am working on my mental game.  Not course management, my actual mental game.  Things like: not letting bad shots affect me, not letting stray thoughts in my head during preshot and shot.  Basically, once I step up to the ball, there is only ball and target...NOTHING ELSE!   I like doing my own research on things and then write about them on my blog.  This is one new topic for me to be writing about.  I hope it helps my game.
