Ok - so next Monday I have my first ever real golf tournament. Part of me is so nervous I want to throw up (have all of a sudden developed the Driver yips which has been my go to club and game changer), the other part of me says I have nothing to lose and to go have fun and enjoy the experience. Really, I’d just like to be competitive and not embarrass myself as I’ve only played golf for 6 years and I’m sure others in the field have played most of their lives.
From those who have played in actual tournaments - what was your experience like, what tips do you have for a newbie, anything I must do the morning of, was there anything that surprised you or caught you off guard about tournament play that you wish you knew going in?
Appreciate all the help!
