Tony’s Tip: one of the main differences between golf and the majority of competitive sports is that no-one directly affects your ball or your shot.

No opponent is going to tackle you, or hide your ball behind a tree, or hurry you into hitting the ball off-balance.

The only influence an opponent has is mental, from pressure exerted by hitting a good shot, and that only works if you let it. It is an acquired skill, but try to play your shot in the way you have decided, don’t let the situation push you into bad thinking.
