If I step up to a 475 yd par 5 that's normally 520 but the tees are up I am all upbeat and know I am making birdie & I swing driver freely. Conversely, if it's a 475 yrd par 4 I am worried and thinking where I don't want to miss etc.
Same thing happens on putts. If I have a 6 footer for bogey I step up confidently and knock it in but if it's for birdie it seems I have a different approach. It's not like I try any less hard or something silly but just my thinking is off and I am wondering how to change this and have the same outlook no matter what stroke it is. Thanks
