Craig Renshaw With Some Insight For Duffers

A great article from Craig Renshaw who is the PGA Teaching Professional for Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club in New Durham, NH written after Jesper Parnevik lose to Justin Leonard at the 2007 Valero Texas Open.
A snippet:

No matter how bad it seems, stay focused on where you are and what you need to be doing, and execute the next shot. Believe that you can hit the shot that you need to be hitting, no matter what has happened in the past. Keep thinking clearly and stick with your game plan. You can control your next shot, not the one that just occurred. Keeping your focus and a positive outlook can pay great dividends, even when your swing is a little off. And sometimes, your swing seems off for awhile and then suddenly comes back to what you expect. That's the nature of golf. Parnevik's wild round was capped off by a great birdie on no. 17 and a superb par save on 18. He may have come up short in the playoff, but he certainly found a way to save a round and in the process, his career, on a day when his golf swing wasn't totally in synch. Wouldn't it be great for all of us to be able to find a way to get the most out of the rounds when we aren't as in control as we'd like to be?
