Coming down the STRETCH

Thread Starter 

Tips on finishing strong? You r comin into 16-17-18, with a tight lead; or need to score well to catch up; or you are sitting on one of your best scores ever and are feelin the HEAT. What are some physical-mental-emotional techniques to manage the distractions scurrying around in the ol brain cage?

Beef jerky on hole numbers 10-13. Seriously, eating right around there is tremendously helpful to me because otherwise all I can think about on 18 is what I'm going to eat when I get to the clubhouse. I could be putting to win the Masters and still think about it if my stomach started voicing its displeasure. It's also much easier for me to focus when I have food in my stomach and a little extra energy. The beef jerky provides both for me.

Other than that all I have to suggest is that you stick to a pre-shot routine that includes you relaxing and pushing out extraneous thoughts. If you practice doing that before every shot when you're fresh and quick to focus it'll make it that much easier when you're tired with a wondering mind.
