Par 2 Mentality

The other day I was reminiscing about playing with one of my friends at Rand Park a couple of years ago. We played a lot that summer and got to the point where we were getting the same score at the course all the time so we came up with the idea of playing the course as par 2 for every hole instead of par 3. Our scores improved quite a bit.

It makes a lot of sense if you think about it. You have so little margin for error with par 2 that you have to improve in order to have a good round. The next time I know I’m going to play in a tournament I am going to spend the preceding month playing with the Par 2 Mentality and see what happens. I also think it would be a good experiment to actually use it while playing the tournament. Try it and let me know how it works. Maybe it the next super effective self improvement technique – just remember who told you about it :)
