Matchplay – Keep your eyes busy, mind still

Published:

Ernie Els’ Open Championship win at Royal Lytham brought into the public eye (excuse the pun) of Eye Doctor Sherylle Calder and more importantly, the role the eyes play in performing at the highest level.

Recent research has shown that when the eyes are busy, looking around and taking in the surroundings, the mind is relatively still, which means you don’t waste time thinking about a bad shot and getting down in the dumps.

So after a bad hole, don’t feel sorry for yourself and look down at your feet in a sulk. Stand tall with your head held high and embrace your surroundings as TG Elite Pro Adrian Fryer explains in this golf video tip.

Give it a try and hopefully, your mind will be free of negative thoughts and you’ll hit a much better shot on the next tee.
