Golf Pro Tip of the Month

First tee nerves…. By Roger Beale Jr

As all golfers know, the first tee can be rather intimidating. A lot of golfers tend to over think the first tee shot; they focus on the negative instead of the positive. The first tee at Royal Westmoreland can be rather daunting if you allow it to be.  It’s imperative that you visualize the ball flying over the gully and landing safely in the middle of the fairway. You must trust your swing. Remember the great shots you’ve hit in the past and let your sub conscious do the rest. Pick your target down the fairway, go through your routine and make a committed swing to your target ignoring the obstacles in front.  You do that and the first tee nerves will be a thing of the past!
