Mental Prep for Tournament

New advice from another library trip, this time from W. Timothy Gallwey, author of The Inner Game of Golf—

HUM while you are swinging.

Now we are faced with the dilemma of choosing the proper tune to hum. Beethoven’s Ode to Joy from the Ninth? John Prine’s Angel from Montgomery? Row Row Row Your Boat? Deck the Halls?

Since all the golf advice we have so far encountered has included some version of “just relax and have FUN out there,” we figure that this focus on choosing the proper tune for humming during the swing is probably a good distraction.

Meanwhile, a significant portion of our mental preparation must include this weekend’s Four Corners weather forecast.

Winter storm warnings?

I can’t hear that because I’m humming. You will have to guess what tune I have chosen.


  1. What was that tune you were humming, Vicki?
    We had a great time during the tournament and we had an effective and collaborative team. It's surprising we came in last, don't you think?

  2. Might I suggest Bon Jovi's "It's My Life"?
