Remaining Calm During A Pressure Golf Shot

I am sure you have heard the saying “a calm before the storm’. These five words cover a plethora of situations but none so dramatic as when trying to make a pressure, must have golf shot. I have explained how I hit clutch shots under pressure before, but yesterday’s round reinforced my view that remaining calm throughout my entire round is key to shooting low golf scores.

Scoring Well, But Playing Weak Golf

Have you ever played a round of golf where you scored well, but left so many strokes on the course it was frustrating. Well, that is exactly what happened to me yesterday.
