Re: funny story.
While playing golf years ago, I got snookered into a $100. nassau. For those who don't play golf, this game is kinda like a running bet that could double after each hole played plus side bets depending on the form agreed upon. Anyhow, I had less than one hundred dollars in my pocket at the first tee. My partner told me not to worry.
My point in telling this is that the monitary pressure can be great motivation to perform. At the time I was a single digit handicap and these guys were teens and twenty's. I lost the first hole and won all but 2 thereafter. That was about a $2100. day for me. I never played for that kind on money again. And that was the only timein my life I ever played below par, raw score.
Good luck shootin' the 1k. do what you can to get ready and remember, "no pressure!"
