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.
