The Hole Just Looks Bigger
By Kickntrue on 7/7/08
You know how a golfer "in the zone" says the hole just seems bigger? A researcher from Purdue University proved this to be true. Of course the hole is in fact exactly the same size- but by using a series of tests, Jessica K. Witt and her co-authors showed that there is a mental perception for better golfers that the hole is wider. Check out the article- it explains some of the technical stuff a little better than I can.
It's all mental folks.

That is very interesting.Maybe when I become a better golfer I will check to see if it is any bigger!!
Oh Yeah? Freud said that when "all the peoples were in the zone, all the holes then seemed bigger, too!" Psycho malarkey!!
