ANTS are Automatic Negative Thoughts that lead to Inconsistency, Fear, Anger and All Things Evil in Your Golf Game. ANT Traps are the Situations That Create Negative Energy in Your Game.
Everyone has ANT Traps, including professionals. Here’s how some pro golfers use the mental game to avoid ANT Traps:
“The game of golf is so mental and if you don’t have everything in the right order it’s very difficult to win golf tournaments.”
“Normally my mental game is my strength and it's something I feel like I have an advantage over other players on. These past two weeks it was a weakness for me. And I've just got to go back and reassess how to remain positive”
“Mentally, I’m really sharp. I didn’t start to think about score. I didn’t think about where I was in the tournament. I was just playing shot after shot after shot.”
“I have a lot of fears in my life….I’m human. A lot of those fears come out on the golf course. Big crowds, just people, people touching me, people yelling at me. Just, I want to go and hide. So I’m getting better at that. I’m trying to."

"In golf most focus on the physical ability to repeat a great golf swing and hit great golf shots. Hours of practice on the range and the putting green to perfect the perfect stroke. Then when they get to the golf course they struggle to do so. The quote 'I'm the best range player ever' or 'If I could just hit it on the course like I do on the range' is said to me over and over every year. My Mental Game Coach (Greg Liberto) teaches you how to prepare your mind and your body to hit that shot when it counts. It's much less practice than what you are putting in at the driving range, but it’s the knowledge you need from Greg to teach yourself how to be relaxed and focused on the course to perform at your peak levels. I highly recommend My Mental Game Coach."
