A golfer’s mindset

Here’s a quote from Adrian Otaegui. Never heard of him? Neither had I but this young Spaniard birdied 5 holes in a row on route to a second round 62 in the latest offering on the European Tour.

Here’s what he had to say:

“I was focused and didn’t know that I had made five birdies in a row,”

“I was playing well and made a few putts, that’s all I was thinking about. The best golf is when you think as little as possible, and this was one of those days”.

Almost all golfers will agree with his words. But why do we all revert to a thinking mindset when we’re not playing well?

Play! Don’t think.
