In the golf yesterday we saw San Diego's own Phil Mickelson tie a record with a 30 on the front 9 only to have the "yips" on the back nine and fail to catch the leaders. Don't get me wrong, he did far better than I would have as my best 18 holes is 83 - but I golf three times every three years. Good weather or not. I like the game. I just don't have time.
Tiger Woods was hitting magical shots only to miss read putts on the notoriously tough Augusta greens. Greens that he has read flawlessly before.
In triathlon the hardest part is getting out the door. Once out the door, if you have the guidance of a good coach, then the difference is made in what you actually do.
Quiet the talk in your head. Just focus on what you are doing and have practiced. The rest doesn't matter.
