Nerves are an unavoidable part of golf, and nowhere is that more true than on the first tee.  There is something about hitting that first shot of the day that makes most golfers a little bit uncomfortable.  If you deal with the first tee jitters on a regular basis, it is important to know that you aren’t alone.  Most golfers experience this sensation, and the best thing you can do is to develop a strategy to overcome your fears.

In this episode of The Golf Podcast hosts Frank & Mike discuss a handful of ways that you can calm your nerves and play a great shot every time.


Fantasy Preview

Following a great week at the Travelers Championship, the tour will now head south to West Virginia for the Greenbrier Classic, one of the newest events on the PGA TOUR after first being established in 2010 and taking place at the par-70, 7,287-yard course each year.

This event is one of three sandwiched in between the U.S. Open and the Open Championship and is typically not attended by many of the top foreign players in the world as they prep overseas for the next big major.  However, many of the players in this group will be competing for a spot at the Open Championship as the PGA saw Graham DeLaet, Brian Harman, Luke Donald and Carl Pettersson earn spots at the major with their finishes.
