Default Best One Liner Tips?

I was recently given this tip, I guess because it was so simple, so utterly true, it just made sense and has immediately changed my game forever. "Take the easiest shot you can make." This was from a pro helping me understand my mental game and trying to shave a few strokes off my game. Granted it's not the aggressive nature the pros take, but I think it really makes sense for the am player who might have plateaued a bit with their mental game. Got any others?

"Take that one line!"
(Wait, is that not the type of one liner you were referring to?)

No seriously, probably "Only think about the next throw" is the best advice for how to focus on what's important vs. getting in your own head about the last hole, or the next hole, or whatever.

Yes, that is also what he told me. After the disc in the air, forget about the last throw and move onto the next. Good advice for sure.

Throw smarter, not harder.

Give that tree more room than you think it needs.

My buddy always reminds me to "Never disrespect the putt", meaning always set the bag down and focus appropriately, even if it's practically a 'gimme'.

On a tight fairway, tell yourself to "hit the gap."

Don't think to yourself "don't hit the tree."

All your brain hears is "hit the tree."

Also the best advice on putting I've ever heard was from a female player who I knew in Phoenix. I had a problem with putting low and hitting the front of the tray. She would always say,"if you can't get it up, you'll never put it in."
