Kyle Stanley Uses Mental Golf to Make a Comeback

Okay, so Kyle Stanley recently won the Waste Management Open this past Sunday. And it was Stanley’s first win on the PGA Tour. That’s big. But you know what I think is the most impressive feat that Stanley pulled off? That he came out ahead only days after suffering a bad defeat at the Farmers Insurance Open. Need I remind you of his five-shot lead heading into Sunday at Torrey Pines? He couldn’t hold onto it… And its days later that he came from seven shots back to win his first tournament on the tour. That’s impressive! How did he do it? In one sentence: Kyle Stanley uses mental golf to make a comeback.

After losing at Torrey Pines, you can imagine how he must’ve felt. I would’ve expected Stanley’s golf game to slump a little bit this week. You just can’t play your best when your thoughts and feelings are dragging you down. Right? Well, with Stanley, the opposite happened. How did he do that? How can he just push aside all that negativity and play great golf?! It’s like how Jonathan Wall describes it on the Devil Ball Golf Blog:

[…] We’ve come to expect the unexpected in the sports world; we’ve seen teams blow huge and lose only to come back and win in the exact same fashion later in the season. But rarely do teams, or players for that matter, ever get over the heartache of a huge loss in a matter of days. Losing takes a mental toll on you, and when you play in an individual sport, you have nobody to blame but yourself for a missed putt or a poor wedge shot. Sure, David Toms did it last year, losing at Sawgrass only to win a week later at Colonial. But the difference between the two was Toms had been there before.

Stanley, on the other hand, was trying to break through and win for the first time on the PGA Tour — something most pros will tell you is by far the most difficult thing to do. That’s why Kyle Stanley’s win at the Waste Management Open was so improbable. You just don’t expect guys going for the first PGA Tour win to be able to push aside the doubts and the demons after such a collapse and win seven days later. But after watching Kyle Stanley this week, it’s clear he’s cut from a different cloth than most guys on tour. […]

Kyle Stanley uses mental golf to make a comeback. What do I mean? The explanation is that Stanley is focused. He broke free of his frustrations and disappointments to come out on top.  OK… But HOW does someone leave the office at the office? How can you take the clubs and yet leave the baggage? The answer is: mental golf. When you master your mind, you master the game. And it’s not as hard as you think. You too can overcome negative thoughts and play without distractions!
