"I like to play a golf course blind"

Jeev Milkha Singh has an interesting golf idiosyncrasy - he doesn't like to play full practice rounds ahead of a tournament.
“I like to play a golf course blind,” Singh said after posting a first-round 70 on Thursday. “That's a big gamble, but I like doing it.”

“If you play a lot of practice rounds, you see a lot of trouble,” he explained. “So you might as well not see it. You might as well just tee it up straight and see the good and go for it. Sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't.”
The Indian, who won the Scottish Open last week to earn a spot in the 141st Open Championship, opened with an even-par 70 in his first full round at Royal Lytham & St Annes, which is six strokes off of the lead.

It's not a strategy I would recommend for the average golfer, but hey, don't knock it until you try it, right?
