Default In between rounds...?

So i played my first monthy the other sat and played intermediate and tied for 4th on a full field ~25 people. I did decent but not great on the front 18 to put me on the leader card and tanked on the back 18. (Thank god so did most others)


What im getting to is what do you guys do to stay in the "mode" or "zone" or even to kick into that other gear for the next round? I usually play 4 rounds a day but just the focus required during one round of tourney play took a toll on me.

if i played well i don't do anything. i hang out, talk disc, eat some food. if i did poorly i will focus on why i am there, to have fun. i may think about the holes i did poorly on a consider a similar hole i have played before and how easy the birdie line really is.

i do not go throw discs. if i want to improve on a crappy round, continuing to play poorly up until the next round will just frustrate me, and im not going to try and fix what isn't broken if i played well.

Just hang out. Don't think about it too much. You'll put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Give yourself a little time to warm back up before the second round. Then just have fun.

I have a catch disc, whamo super 165, it helps me keep "limber?", its hella fun to throw and catch, and it helps with making new friends. Eat something, just nothing greasy. Remember disc golf is for FUN!!!!

Maybe you should work on having better focus during your daily rounds so that your mental fatigue will not be so noticeable. Just an idea

For me it's got a lot to do with my mood and how I'm playing that day. If the first round was ultra crappy, rather than sit around and have somebody ask how I did, I'll go to the car and just zone out to some music and try to treat the second round like I'm just getting there for the day. If I did good or at least had fun, then I'll sit around and socialize.
It may sound like a whiney thing to do..running away and sulking, but the music takes my head off everything and with headphones someone always comes up to me, hence the going to the car.

I tend to think too much about my game so I stay as occupied as possible with non-dg related activities during the break. Last saturday at a monthly I dropped my card off, ate lunch, and listened to half of a james brown album while surfing the internet on my phone. When the break finished i went to my respective hole and shot a devastatingly hot round. Ended up winning intermediate, tieing first in advanced, and tieing for last place cash.

I ask the TD if I can help check scorecards, move baskets, or do anything else that needs to be done.

I try I try, it's easier when i play with my dad cause we're so damn competative. With anyone else its so nonchalant. But im definetly going to start focusing more during normal rounds i neeeeeed to sink those easy birdie putts.

Do you guys find it a necessity to eat in between rounds? i think i might've been worn down because of the lack of food but i wasnt hungry at all. I should probably get some light snacking in between round to (theoretically) keep my focus up to par (pun not intended).
