Did you know that English golf phenom Charley Hull is also a magazine columnist? Not content with being an LET champion and Solheim Cup member at age 17, and one of the most exciting young players in women's golf at age 18, now Charley is also writing a column for Lady Golfer Magazine.
Lady Golfer is published by the UK's National Club Golfer. Charley was announced as a new columnist earlier this year and her first report appeared in June. She began it by saying, "Welcome to my first column for LG where I look forward to telling you all about my exploits on the course and hopefully a few wins!"
In her second column, published in September, Charley shared some insights into her mental approach:
I like to visualise everything off the tee, rather than being too technical, and after a few weeks off (other than some games with my mates) it is easy to forget the mental visuals and then, after a couple of weeks of tournaments, it comes back and I get my confidence back.
I don’t work with a sports psychologist and just do it myself and it seems to work pretty well. I have got to know Ian Poulter, who also plays at Woburn, and he does the same thing. It helps me to be really positive, play my normal attacking game and to really focus on the target, whether it is off the tee or on the greens.
