Mental Game: Same Swing in Practice as in Play
Dear Dr. Putt:
My Dear Mr. I:
Dr. Putt actually has already published one good approach to this very common problem. But you probably did not find it because it was listed in the letter index as a book review rather than a letter on improving swing consistency or the mental game of golf. So just go to Book Review on The Double Connexion, which presents a way to get a consistent swing that can be taken to the course from the practice range. The key idea is to distract yourself letting your body do what it has learned through repetition. Yes, it really works! Dr. Putt uses this method and it has markedly improved his consistency.
So take a look and give it a try and next time perhaps you will be Mr. "C." Keep Dr. Putt informed!
