Find Your Best State of Mind
Most club players across the US give about 70% effort during club matches while socializing, playing relaxed, and hitting great shots throughout the night. The average club players try much much harder in tournaments and often play a much different style in tournaments.
Sometime, when I see a player at the club hit a very good shot, I will pose the question,
“Could you do that in a tournament?”
The answer nearly always come back with, “No.”
I respond with, “Why not?”
