After a particularly bad hole I know many golfers, myself included, will walk to the next tee and think about where it all went wrong…from a sliced tee shot to a chunked iron shot, to a putt that was never going to reach, I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of beginning the following hole […]
About Luke Vidler
An amateur golfer and recent graduate of Chichester University. I have both a BSc and MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology and am keen to utilise my knowledge in practical situations, even if I can’t help myself!
A member of Golf at Goodwood, I am yet to play anywhere other than the South East of England. That being said I am keen to play abroad as soon as I can, experiencing golf not just on the continent, but worldwide, leaving rainy England, and my slice, behind.

As we return to golf, competitions will hopefully soon resume and in this blog we’ll look at how you can mentally prepare yourself for the pressures that a round of golf can bring. Whether you’re having the round of your life, or a round to forget somewhere across your 18 holes you’ll be met with […]
Expect the unexpected Ahhh, you’re back on the course. After being locked down you’re stood on the first tee box again, a tricky hole, and one you’ve struggled with in the past, lots of danger on the right, and red stakes lining the fairway. Perfect. You’re lacking confidence and not sure what to […]
Setting the scene We’ve all been there, sliced a tee shot, three of the tee, and you’re annoyed at yourself. Mentally berating yourself, how could you be so stupid, you know how to hit a straight tee shot, why can’t you do it?!…anybody?…just me?…well, this is awkward…. Either way, I know how frustrating it […]
“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” Vince Lombardi We’ve all been there, a ropey round of golf with a variety of miss hits and a LOT of balls lost, right…? But all is not lost, surely all you really need is a bucket of balls on the range […]
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible” – Tony Robbins With the summer heat firmly in place, golf has been awash with both returning players and a mass of new players, making the game more popular than ever. But however long you’ve been playing, the big question for us […]
I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. It’s like a colour movie. First I ‘see’ where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes and I ‘see’ […]
“The foundation of consistency is a sound pre-shot routine.” – Bob Rotella With golf courses having been reopened for nearly a month now, many of us can feel the rust falling away from our golf game. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the slice, over the past few weeks but boy does it feel […]
“If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better than it is.” – Horace G. Hutchinson. The year started with such optimism, not just a new year but a new decade, a clean slate, and a chance to finally cut our handicaps. But no […]
