Have you been feeling lucky on the course lately?

Every golfer loves those moments when it feels as if the stars have aligned in the game and shots are working out, even when perfect contact is not made. But you can’t wait around hoping for the best if you want to play well. 

In this episode, sports psychologist Shannon Reece shares three proven ways to increase your luck in golf. You might be surprised at how easy it is.

Here’s how this episode plays out, according to Reece:

  • [04:10] Strategy No. 1: Have a plan – Here I share how to uncover the right things to focus on during a round in place of your score so that you can shoot a good number.
  • [06:33] Strategy No. 2: Look for opportunities – The more flexible your approach to your round, the easier it is to tap into your creativity and put yourself in the best position to hit a great shot.
  • [09:19] Strategy No. 3: Just chill – You have a choice when it comes to how you perceive the challenges of the game. And in this final strategy, I talk about why it’s so important to keep your thoughts under your control.
