An experiment on first tee nerves found ’80 percent’ of golfers make this mistake

An experiment on first tee nerves found ’80 percent’ of golfers make this mistake

Professional golfers know how to handle first tee nerves. They hit a lot of important opening tee shots, after all, and they wouldn’t be professional golfers if they didn’t know how to navigate the pressure.

But every two years, at the Solheim and Ryder Cups, pros are flung firmly outside of their comfort zones.

Every Ryder and Solheim Cupper who’s hit that first tee shot has a story about it. With the surrounding crowds, some talk about shaking so much that they can’t even get their golf ball on a tee. Scottie Scheffler said he was so terrified he couldn’t feel his arms. Jess Korda, watching the Solheim Cup this week, said her first tee nerves at past Solheims made her driver shaft feel like a fishing rod.
