Do you ever doubt? Everyone knows that Zach Johnson won the OPEN Championship this year, but did you know that he won with mediocre statistics? He was 60th in driving distance and he was 40th in greens in regulation. But, at the end of the playoff he alone stood at the top for one reason - CONFIDENCE.
  • Repeatable swings build CONFIDENCE. It's clear that Zach works to eliminate EVERY unnecessary part of his swing. He squares his clubface naturally without a lot of wrist movement. His follow-thru doesn't wrap around his head three times like a corkscrew.
  •  Pre-shot routines build CONFIDENCE. Watching Zach go through the same routine shot after shot all week long suggests another element of his game that was important to his win. Whether it was setting up his initial drive or lining up a chip for par on the 71st hole, Zach went through the same routine every time.
  • Caddies build CONFIDENCE. Standing on the second tee aiming his drive directly over the gorse, Zach trusted his caddie to point the way. When lining up his putts, again he trusted his caddie to point out the line.
Every part of Zach's game builds CONFIDENCE. What builds confidence in your game?
