I'm having a lot of trouble backing off a shot once I get set and ready. Several times over the weekend and many times over the last month or so I've been ready to pull the trigger and something gets my attention. Could be someone clicking the parking brake on a cart, someone walking off the tee (not cool of them but not that big a deal for a casual round) or anything else. My mind just goes into this loop of "Don't think about it. Just hit" Of course if I am thinking that then I am not thinking about the shot.
It happened Sunday on the first tee and I started with triple! The rest of the front 9 I just wasn't comfortable and shot 49!! I took Romeo's advice on the back (hat on backwards, tee behind ear, double tie shoe etc) and shot 39 and that INCLUDED me again losing focus on 17 when I heard a cart brake click and yanked it OB for what ended up being a double. I don't really want to play every round looking like a douche bag though.
I don't know what I'm looking for here other than maybe some experiences others have had and how you approached it.
