Patton Kizzire - Staying Calm

Patton Kizzire discusses the importance of staying calm. He's had to battle being angry on the course early in his career, but has since learned how to harness it.


Probably one of your sort of natural traits is you're a pretty calm guy. Is that true? People say to you that you're like the big Teddy bear. You're just real nice?

Yeah I'm calm until I'm not. I have a lot of fire in me. I've had to battle the temper and the anger issues. I get pretty fired up. But I play my best when I'm calm. I'm normally a calm person. Golf is one of the few things that can get me really fired up. So that's just-- I care that much, or almost too much. But that's something I've had to battle for my whole career.
