How Keeping Score of Your Mental Game Will Lower Your Stroke Scores with PGA Tour Veteran Richard Zokol


759: Richard Zokol’s PGA Tour career spanned over 20-years, winning twice while competing in 412 PGA Tour events. As he treats us to great stories about his career, he also shares the Ah-Ha moment in the final round of the 2000 US Open when, after shooting a 30 on the front nine, he was no longer emotionally tied to his score. The result is a fabulous free (iOS only so far) app called MindTrakGolf that shifts your focus away from stroke scoring and offers simple tracking of your shot assessments and shot executions. Listen for details.

This is a unique week for Golf Smarter and Golf Smarter Mulligans in that both episodes feature conversations with former PGA Tour players. In episode #75 of Mulligans, we sit down with Aaron Oberholser at a press event for the 2009 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am to talk about life on the Tour and that Pros are working when they play, but amateurs need to remember that golf is a game and is supposed to be fun.
