I have called the state most golfers play in the, White Zone. This is the frame of mind that cause most problems;

  • Concerned about all things
  • Mind spinning
  • Poor memory of shots
  • Confused
  • Overly nervous
  • Game seems difficult and maybe impossible

The White Zone is not where you need to be. It is using too much conscious mind and is stopping you from playing better golf. Golfers who play in the white zone will try really hard, think a lot about their game and care about their score. Seems like the right thing to do but rarely will they experience better golf.

The Grey Zone is moving in the right direction. This is the sate of mind you experience when you start playing better golf. But it’s not the ideal mindset because you’re too close to the White Zone. You’re likely to slip back at anytime and suffer poor golf;

  • One or two shots away from slipping back
  • Struggle to let go for any length of time
  • Do hit some good shots but the tendency is to analyse

The Blue Zone is what all golfers should be aiming for. This is where you enter the “zone” and will play your best golf.

  • A clear mind
  • Better able to make the correct decision
  • Mind focused on what you want to achieve
  • Not overly concerned about poor shots
  • Better memory of your round
  • Free from fear and extreme anxiety
  • Committed to the process

The Blue Zone is not an event. It’s a process that takes commitment over a long period of time. There is an accumulation effect. The more you do it the easier it is to achieve. So how do you achieve the Blue Zone?

The simple answer is by playing automatically. Subconscious playing is the only way you can get your mind is the correct place for great golf.

    HI Cam,
    playing in the blue zone is a lot more relaxing than being stressed about a 5 ft put for par. Your right it is a process not an event. The process aids you into achieving the golas you set off the course.
    Cheers Steady
    PS Can you also do a post on playing an unfamiliar course. How to overcome the surprises and mystery of a new course.

    I know Steady was going to ask you re how to handle the process when you have purchased new clubs,I feel that would be an interesting post and would benefit me because I have just bought some new irons and found myself a little uncertain with them.
    Cheers Lukey
