Build your confidence on the first tee: How to Prepare to play your best!

Honestly, who hasn’t had the first tee jitters. At all stages of our playing careers we have all experienced anxiety, butterflies, elevated heart rate and sweaty palms on the first tee.

Whether you are playing for the first time, competing in your first amateur tournament, competing in a professional event, entertaining clients for business golf or playing in a club championship, we have all experienced nerves on the first tee.

The preparation you take in the weeks or months prior to your golf game will help you relax and enjoy your day. Once you understand that all golfers feel the same way on the first tee, you can use the tactics below to alleviate your stress. Professional golfers often get anxious about performing in front of a crowd and it is compounded if they know they haven’t put in the practice.

Caddie Chronicles: The Rise of a PGA Star

The week I spent as a Caddie during the Nova Scotia Open is one of most amazing weeks of my career and personal life – A week I will never forget! Any chance I can get to be inside the ropes of a professional golf event I want to be there.

I saw that he was 39th on the money list this year. So I sent him a quick note on twitter congratulating him on his impressive play and asked if he was coming to Halifax again.

As a beginner golfer I can enjoy the game without intimidation or fear. Several scheduled tee times per week make it possible to pick and choose times and courses convenient to the golfer. It’s been a great summer of social golfing and of skill development. I look forward to next season.
