Yesterday’s LPGA tournament at Kingsmill was not only a beautiful day, but an exciting lesson in champion behavior. Paula Creamer and Jiyai Shin played 8 ( The record was 10, back in 1972!) tie breaking playoffs at the 18th hole….finally giving in to darkness. Good news for Kingsmill, as the golfing world watched the sun set over the James River time and time again, and this tournament will be remembered for years to come. The difference in the purse between 1st and 2nd place was $75,000, but since neither of these top ranked players had won on tour since 2010, it was about way more than the money to them. That is some serious pressure, and it was fascinating to watch them go back and play the same hole over and over, and match each other shot for shot, putt for putt. That is when the power of practice surfaces. “Repeatability” as the commentators observed, was a prized skill today. It will be interesting to see if a good night’s sleep makes a difference, or if they will battle it out over multiple sudden death holes again this morning.
How is your repeatability? When it counts most (listing presentations, negotiating), you should be at your best, the result of a rehearsed routine that you know works. Confidence. No room for mistakes.
Have a great week! Liz
