Brandt Snedeker on Playing in Tough Conditions (Video)

Brandt will have to play 29 holes today, and in this short video he talked about what he needed to do to play well. I'm posting it because this is good advice, no matter what your tough conditions are.

If you know beforehand that you're going to be in tiring conditions, make sure you get enough rest before you go out.

Most weekend players don't realize you can dehydrate just as badly in cold weather as in hot weather, in wet weather as well as in dry weather. Your body needs water no matter what the conditions are. (And food too. Taking some easy-to-digest snacks along is a good idea as well.)

And finally, avoid "mental lapses." In other words, you'd like to have a plan before you tee off and then stick to it. When you're tired and/or dehydrated, your mind can wander more than usual. If you're in decent shape, you're more likely to make mental mistakes than physical ones.

We'll have to see how well Brandt follows his own advice today. The weather looks iffy again, so he'll have the double challenge of playing more holes than normal and doing so in tough conditions. That three-shot lead may not seem as big by the time he reaches the final nine.
