I called Garrett on Wednesday to see how he was feeling for the tournament. He told me that this golf course did not fit him (long and wide open) and that he couldn’t win. I knew right then that Garrett was going to have a good week!
He is very hard on himself and by believing he couldn’t win, he took the pressure off. He basically had NO expectations. Think about your own game when you go to play, are you judgmental on every shot?
What kind of expectations do you set? Sometimes you are better off just going out to play or practice with an attitude of ‘let’s see what happens’.
