Past Few Weeks in Golf

by George Miller, GCHD Staff Writer

These past few weeks certainly haven’t turned out like most people thought they would. Big time names making a comeback in the game Like Charl Schwartzel making the 5 shot comeback to win at the Valspar or Adam Scott winning two events in south Florida, including a WGC.  Who saw this coming? Not me.

Adam is adjusting to the first year of the new ban on anchored putters, something which he has grown accustomed to for years now. He made the switch because he wasn’t putting well with the short putter and this stick was the only thing that held his game down.  We are not even through our first major yet and Adam Scott racked up two straight wins - no one could have ever predicted.

My opinion on his biggest issue wasn’t the short stick, it was the confidence in his putting.  Before he went to the broomstick he had no majors to having not one but two majors and falling short of having three! I think it was the pressure of having such high expectations at such an early age that he hadn’t won anything big other than a Player’s that he got mentally locked up. This is also coming from the guy that had to emerge while in the shadow of the Tiger Woods era. Although that seems as a feat he tried to emulate Tiger - Scott practiced like Tiger. He saw Tiger lifting weights so then Scott said I need to lift weights too.
It’s never been that the talent wasn’t there for Adam, it was just that the mental game wasn’t fully there.  Now that he has 2 majors essentially solidifying a Hall-of Fame invite in the future,  I think he can now let go and just play golf, which he has. Look at his stats this year; 2 Wins and 2 Second place finishes in just 6 starts thus far. That’s a great year in itself, and major season is just around the corner. So mentally, it goes to show, don’t put so much pressure on yourself and think confidently, and if you really want to build your confidence and everything else check our Perfectview device mount and our GolfCamHD App on Google Play.
