Ernie Els gets mental game in synch

As many people will know, I’ve been working on and off over the past two years with the famous sports psychologist Dr Bob Rotella. At the start of last week, having made an early exit in the Accenture, I decided to have a talk with Dr Bob, just to see if I could regroup and maybe clear my mind. He knows me and he knows what I’m like. I think trying to win those tournaments and get better had maybe made me a little bit uptight, so we had a chat about a few things and tried to work on getting me a bit more relaxed. I felt like it helped. You know, I felt like my old self out there again.

I said before the start of the Honda Classic that a win is what I needed in order to really kick-start my year, so this couldn’t have come at a better time. Being up there last week, in the mix, feeling the heat and knowing that I can pull off the shots under pressure, that is what it’s all about. It’s amazing what a win does for your confidence.
