I get more messages and questions on this subject than any other. People always want to know how a pro practices, what their mental game is and how to handle nerves. I can personally tell you that I shot more than I ever have this past season, but it turned out to be the longest and worst year that I have had as a pro. Due to this, it was an extremely mentally draining year and my confidence suffered. Notice that I said that I shot more and not that I practiced more. There is a HUGE difference between shooting and practicing. Your mental game isn’t only something that you use in tournaments; it is also something that you use in practice.

As a professional shooter I earn my paycheck from being able to understand and adapt to the new equipment. Tuning has become an everyday thought that passes through my mind. How can we make it better? What can I do to change it? Is there something I’m overlooking that is right in front of me? These kinds of questions are how new product comes to fruition and how problems are solved.
