Here are a few quick Golf Tips from Rick Mattox, General Manager & Head Professional of The King and Prince Golf Course, for your next round of golf:

1. HAVE FUN. Make this decision on your way to the course. Whatever happens, you’re going to enjoy it. Having this focused mentality will help you stay more relaxed when the pressure is on. It’s a game after all, not life or death.

2. NO SWING THOUGHTS. Save these for your practice time. Make focusing on routine and shot shape and target your goal. Trying to correct your swing or your body is only going to disconnect you from the shot you are intending to hit. It’s all about the target.

3. PLAY SMOOTH AND RELAXED GOLF. When you start to feel pressure, or get a little hard on yourself, your muscles get tighter and you start to swing quicker. Most swing problems during a round are caused by this. So, instead of analyzing your swing, try simply lightening your grip a little. Reducing the tension in your hands will relax your muscles throughout your whole body. You’ll start swinging a lot smoother and your ball striking will improve.
