Old Rules Golf Instructor O. R. Smith wants to know: Are You Mental?
The mental side of golf is so essential to success on the golf course. The New Rules of Core Mental Toughness that I wrote with Dr. Rick Jensen are available at NewRulesGolf.com and in the downloadable e-book “The New Rules of Golf Instruction.” The essential mental skills can be learned and get to the true cause of a better mental game. The Old Rules sports psychologists and teachers reel off surface/quick fixes like deep breathing and “be your own best friend.”
Our Old Rules golf instructor O.R. Smith gives a mental lesson to Hank Headcase that can best be described as overwhelming. Watch our newest O. R. Smith segment below.

The funniest thing had happened in a matchplay tournament that this player entered. Drawn to take part in the two-day strokeplay qualifying before the matchplay started, his “mental caddy” booked a flight out of the city, not expecting the player to get through. He did and so the caddy had to postpone his ticket till after the first round. He won his first tie, and again the guy had to postpone his ticket till finally this improbable run came to an end in the third round. My only point is how could you possibly have a caddy who doesn’t even have the slightest faith in your abilities? Beats me for sure.
