Do you start a game ready to clean up, but then become besieged by your own inner chatter? Most athletes have trained themselves to focus when needed, but sometimes their own inner chatter or internal, self-induced distractions prevent them from performing up to their potential. What do I mean by internal distractions?
Well, external distractions, such as someone standing in your putting line, are easier to cope with – you just shift your focus away from the distraction. Internal distractions (or inner chatter) are harder let go of because you conjure up these deadly self-inflicted distractions all on your own without the help of others!
