Golf Psychology: “A small red spot on the glove of golfer Louis Oosthuizen is credited with playing a critical role in his winning of The Open Championship at St Andrews last Sunday. The coloured spot was a visible manifestation of the growing influence of psychology in sport – it was designed to help the 27-year-old South African concentrate on his swing in the crucial moments leading up to a shot.” LOVE THIS. Who isn’t going to try the red dot strategy? Also, because we watched some golf over the weekend and didn’t notice the spot on Oosthuizen’s glove, this reminded us of the red dot on Elaine’s cashmere sweater. Best line from that episode? “Then he kicked me … and threw change at me.” [Independent]
