I've been posting a lot about the mindsets of great golfers this month, because I hope that seeing how they think about their games can help us weekend golfers improve our thinking out on the course... and help us shave a few strokes in the process.
Well, Greg D'Andrea over at From the Rough doesn't claim to be a great golfer. (Of course, with Tiger out of the picture for a while, that may change.) However, his post "What the Crap is a Slope Rating?" is something every weekend golfer should read. While slope isn't a difficult concept, what I like about Greg's post is that he tells you how to use it to help prepare mentally for a round.
By all means, check it out. The more weapons you have in your mental arsenal, the better.
