Without mental preparation, you have little hope of being consistent on the golf course.

Since consistency is the hallmark of great golfers, you must learn mental strategies to keep you from veering off course, so to speak.

One PGA golfer who has struggled with consistency is Rickie Fowler. Fowler’s performance seems to drop off significantly after some of his best rounds, which is a phenomenon that happens to many golfers…

At the 117th U.S. Open, Fowler opened with a 65 on the first round to top the leaderboard. On Day 2, Fowler had difficulty repeating his level of play from the previous day and shot a disappointing 73.

Fowler rebounded with a 4-under 68 during Saturday’s third round and entered the Final Round in fourth place and within striking distance of the leader (2 strokes). With a consistent round, Fowler could have wrapped up his first Major title.

Instead, Fowler shot a 72 and finished tied for fifth…

Of course, you will have an occasional bad round or a few bad holes, but if you can keep your mental approach to each tournament and each shot consistent, then you improve your chances of performing more consistently over the course of a round or tournament.
