Major championship winner Jason Day is a class example of someone who can handle their nerves out there.

Dealing with making mistakes and how to get over them, learning how to handle your nerves and engage with hard work are all factors that can help you become a better player.

Learn from your mistakes

When you improve and play consistently better, you are reaffirming that what you are doing is the right thing. Everyone makes mistakes at some stage, so the thing to do is learn from them and being able to put them behind you and move on. Do not dwell on them because they are in the past and you cannot do anything about it. You can do something about the future. Put in the effort

Hard work makes everyone become more consistent. Everyone gets into bad habits with their golf swing – you just need to do a few more drills and there will be more consistency in your swing.

Absorb the pressure

There are no tricks when it comes to dealing with nerves. The more you get yourself in a position of feeling those nerves, the more you get used to them. Then, suddenly, you start to welcome it. That rush of adrenalin is a good feeling. You get nervous because you work hard, and it means a lot to you to do better.
