Never give up
Birdie, par, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie. We've all finished a round like this, right?! This was Rickie Fowler's amazing finish at The Players and it just goes to show if you don't let your shoulders drop, you can come from nowhere to win.
What we find with a lot of amateur golfers is that they obsess about their score, especially when chasing Stableford points. If you stay focused and play each shot at a time, a good score will remain within your grasp.
This is a difficult game and if you can learn to accept the odd blip then you'll be better for it. Of course, hitting the odd 243-yard 3-wood to two feet will help, but don't stress if you don't pull this off every time, not even Fowler would have expected a kick-in eagle like he managed to pull off.
However, do request a lesson if there's anything you'd like help on, such as striking fairway woods off the deck like Mr Fowler, do get in touch. You know where we are…click here to request a lesson.
