What is a scratch attitude?
A golfer with a scratch attitude is a man or woman with the rare ability to remain grounded in a positive emotional state for 18 holes; whether playing well or playing poorly, and whether playing socially with friends or vying to win a club championship. Such a golfer consistently
— feels great after a great shot
— feels good after a good shot
— feels neutral after a bad swing or a bad break
— feels confident enough to trust his swing as it is.
How did the scratch attitude method come about?
It’s personal. I fell into the trap that ensnares most avid golfers — I habitually ignored my best shots and reacted strongly to my worst. Eventually, my attitude sucked the joy out of my game. But one day on the range, I decided enough was enough and intuitively began searching through my decades of coaching experience. Thankfully, I re-discovered the concept of emotional intelligence. Once I found a way to apply that knowledge to my game, I began to lighten up and have more fun. As a consequence, I started playing my best golf more often. After more than five years of personal validation, I feel it’s time to share the scratch attitude method with any golfer open to new possibilities.
