On golf and technology
“Golf to me is constantly getting better. All the technology and everything makes it easier to play golf at any level, which can only make it more enjoyable, which I think is a good thing.”
“I got into meditation a while ago when I was struggling with my game a little bit. It makes a big difference if you can be in the routine of practising mindfulness or anything like that.”
“My parents have always been really supportive… I’ve been very lucky to have parents like that. The only thing that they ever asked, really, was that I gave it 100% whatever I was doing.
Athletes need emotional support, too
“The trust element is huge. I’ve never met a sportsman that doesn’t live and breathe what they do, so having that emotional support is so important and such a help.”
Getting your head in the game
“In golf, you’re on your own and you have so much time to think about things. You have to really control how you talk to yourself. I think being able to switch off, being able to stay present, it’s different than in other sports.”
