Chris Vonderkall is the Vice President of the U.S. Kids Golf Tournament Players Association (@USKidsGolfFDN). U.S. Kids Golf, a PCA National Partner, aims to help kids have fun learning the lifelong game of golf and encourage family interaction that builds lasting memories.

In this video, Vonderkall explains how an increased pace of play leads to better performances. The less time to think the better he says. In golf, players have the tendency to overthink everything which leads to negative thoughts and poorer play. This is especially prevalent in young golfers. Taking away the chance to overthink shots helps players eliminate negative thoughts and perform better.
