Overcoming distractions are part of the game. When you hear a distraction that it’s away from the direction you want to be aiming, you need to be able to trick yourself into having your attention drawn towards your target.

Whether it’s a noisy group of golfers, a leafblower or something else, we naturally want to face the sound, so in order to counteract that, pretend the flagstick is yelling, “over here, over here.” This mental trick will have you concentrating even more acutely on the target, distracting you from the original distraction.
