Matchplay – Take control of your body language

Published:

In matchplay, your opponent can take confidence and strength from your weakness. If you hit a wayward shot and show your displeasure, your opponent will believe he has you on the racks and make a conscious effort to put the final nail in your coffin.

But there’s a way you can stop this from happening, as TG Elite Pro Adrian Fryer explains in this golf video tip.

If throughout the match you display positive body language, you’ll grind your opponent down. If you drive just slips off the fairway, exclaim “that’s perfect” even if you know it isn’t.

It may will get under the skin of your opponent (completely within the rules of course!) and may lead to him playing a poor shot.
