Athletes’ games and opulent lifestyles will only be admired by those who observe them from the outside. Being a sportsperson, though, encompasses much more than that. Exhaustion and mental fatigue are also very much a part of any game. Every day, players are expected to be at the top of their game and to avoid making any errors. It is clear that this has an impact on their mental health.
Many prominent athletes talk about the mental pressure they go through during the games. The golf stars also share their experiences from time to time. 2023 Greater Toledo LPGA Classic winner Linn Grant, also talked about her tough experience at the course.
