Golf is a mind game

As I have said before (probably too many times), golf is a funny game, played to a large degree in the head.

I was again reminded of this by the play of Brittany Lincicome in the LPGA‘s CVS/Pharmacy event this week.

Lincicome shot a 61 on Thursday, to put her at the top of the leaderboard at 11 under and then went out on Friday and beat her way around the course to finish the day with a 4 over par 76.

We high handicappers have a tendency to look at our best scores as our benchmark and then beat ourselves up when our next game balloons into the stratosphere.

But when you see a top ranked professional in the game take a 15 shot swing from one game to the next it puts the whole process in its proper perspective.
