Hi lehhnsly,
This sounds like a case of pre-tournament jitters or just plain old nervousness.
Perhaps you could use a Valium before your golf tourney? Although it may affect your game, not sure about that part. Perhaps a different benzodiazepine like Ativan would be better as it wouldn't affect your game, or relax your body like Valium would.
Best wishes and a hole-in-one for you!

Why does alcohol stop the nausea? It is a shame, but it stops it immediately.

I suggest that any type of beta blocker may be better to try first as it will not impare your judgement but will takeaway the nervousnes. It is also non addictive and uses in sports that require steady hands under pressure.

mhcl has the right idea, much better than taking a benzo!

It sounds like you've a major case of nerves before a tournament and if one drink cures it, why not have just one? It's not like you'll down an entire bottle of
vodka or scotch!

This sounds good once or twice but just be careful as using alcohol to treat any type of psychological condition such as performance anxiety can develop into an addiction. Soon you may find your self in a situation where one drink is not enough and two is already too many. Treating alcohol addiction permanently is extremely difficult as alcohol is available evwrywhere you look.

Propranolol should do the job.
