How to Overcome First Tee Jitters

Address the Underlying Reason of Your Fear

Do you struggle with your composure on the golf course because you’re nervous before the round?

In this week’s golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn talks about how to handle first tee jitters. Dr. Cohn, responds to a question from Dan who had this to say about his game:

Dan: “I feel nervous before the round and on the first 3 holes because I want to play well. But then I start overthinking… When I start out nervous, it’s hard to get my composure back during the round. How do I start the round with a calm mindset?”

Performance anxiety is another mental game challenge most golfers face during their game. Dr. Cohn explains how to overcome this feeling of being nervous and jumping to a conclusion, ending up losing focus on the golf round.
