Mental Tips from Brooks Koepka

I found this new article -- and when I say new, I mean it was written late yesterday -- over at Golfweek called Brooks Koepka's Recipe for Major Success Is Simple ... Very Simple. And when you read it, you're going to say it's nothing new.

But read it. It will help you.

Brooks Koepka

For example, he says that performing in a major comes down to preparation. But most of us, whether we like to admit it or not, need to have things "dumbed down" a bit. So Brooks says:
Sometimes it’s a lot simpler than people think. I think people kind of psyche themselves out quite a bit in a major, put too much pressure on themselves. It’s the same game I’ve been playing for 23, 24 years. All you’ve got to do is put the ball in the hole and move on.”
Yes, I hear you now. Yes, that's a HUGE understatement. But when you're under pressure to score, you need to keep it simple.

Want to guess what Brooks set as his goal this week? For every major he plays?
Try to avoid double bogeys.
Yes, this short article has quite a bit of terse, simple advice. You'll be tempted to gloss over it.

Don't. Instead, pay serious attention. This is good USABLE advice from a winner. And it's easy to remember.
