I am very definitely affected by this syndrome. What I did to help take my practiced elements into my competitive game was to think about one of the significant differences between practice and comp and use that. The difference lies in the fact that in practice the stakes are much smaller, ie the consequences of performance or lack of performance are less–confined to a moment, that session. The first thing was to consider the first competition or so as “practice competition,” so I radically reduced my own stakes. Once I had successfully deluded myself, I worked at developing specific practice oriented physical routines. Shadow swings, at slow pace and then normal pace, are particularly useful. They use the physical cues that Joe was discussing, the very specific cues, and turn the “correct” stakeless performance of the routine into comfort. “I really do have that shot.” I have to work at the latter some if what I have been practicing is not a stroke, but a strategy. I can’t very well shadow a three-stroke sequence!
