The mental secret to great golf?

I was on today and noticed an interesting headline on the front page. "Secret to Better Golf Scores Discovered," it read. Naturally, I read on. apparently performed a little experiment where 46 golfers were asked to estimate the size of the hole. Pretty simple, right? Golfers were given nine holes to decide between, and the final result indicated that the players who estimated larger sizes had performed better when playing 18 holes of golf.

Jessica Witt, a psychologist at Purdue University, said, "Golfers have said that when they play well the hole looks as big as a bucket or basketball hoop."

Witt's next mission is to figure out how golfers can unlock the secret to visualizing a bigger hole. So, for now, not much help for the regular golfer.
