The Decision Jamie Made

adversity mental game mindset present process Mar 15, 2021

When people ask me what exactly is it that I do with athletes and coaches, the answer is simple.

I give them the mental performance tools to play at their best when it matters the most.

And those tools were on full display this weekend at the Tangle Ridge Regional as Top Mental Game alumna Jamie Welsh stepped up to to the last hole in a mighty tough spot.

After besting the field by 4 strokes in Rd 1 with a 7️⃣2️⃣, she saw her lead evaporating in Rd 2 thanks to an epic performance by future college teammate who sank 5 birdies, including the 18th, for a 🔥6️⃣8️⃣.

To make matters worse, Jamie bogeyed 14 and 17. And then she gets told she HAS to birdie the par-5 18 to win.

What would YOU do? What would YOU be thinking in that moment?

For most of us, our mental state would be frazzled. We would be caught inside of our own head. Sensing the shift in momentum, we might let our nerves get the best of us. It would lead us to play small, hesitant, and scared.

So what did Jamie do? She did one of my exercises to get present, to calm the chaos in her mind, and refocus her on the task on hand.

Then she made the decision to go for it.

She grabbed her 3-wood and drove it 248 yards, giving her a shot at 🦅 - she eventually sank a birdie putt to win the tournament by 1️⃣ stroke.

Jamie won, in my opinion, as soon as she made the decision to control her emotions and go for it. Regardless of the outcome, she was going to trust in her process.

That type of approach is no doubt going to help her golf game, but it’s also going to make her successful in life.
