I've done that before...i've learned never think a hole or course ahead...just play the lie you are on (the basket)

I've been able to do a lot better that way. Then you don't think too much or question throws or discs to use and how to use.

I just play relaxed and within my comfort zone. I'm able to keep up and pass a lot of players this way.

But, everyone is different.
What course/tourny you playing in?

best round

I went out about a month ago and played a round after not having played for 2 months. I promptly shot a -9 for my best round ever at that course. I still can't explain it.

Sometimes time off helps us get rejuvinated. Even though we don't feel/realize it, we suffer from fatigue at times. I know when I have time off, I'm not only playing every day but several times a day.

I make it a point not to think about, or even know my score if I can help it, during a round. Even when I am the one with the card, I write down my score as quickly as possible and then don't think about it. I find that if I think, 'wow, i'm 2 down' or whatever, it really throws me off.

I basically try to think of nothing but my very next shot.

Sleepy-
I think that way to. Just play and dont worry about it.
Then at the end of the round I get my score, and I 'm satisfied.
It puts to much pressure on me know I have to birdie or par to beat someone.
Throws off the concentration.
