Golf is a unique sport that is steeped in history. Regardless of the situation, the ebbing and froing of how to improve our scores is a battle waged each day. It is a challenge sometimes to venture into the realm of a new golf game when our old one feels so comfortable, but stagnate. Unfortunately, to be a better golfer with the desire to constantly improve, living in the the uncomfortable zone is a must. The question is how to bridge that gap between our old comfortable game and the possibility of a new a better game. It is a question all golfers ask themselves from time to time.<!
I have reached the tipping point many times in my game. I have worked so diligently that when the time arrives to take that set forward in to a new a better game I have hesitated. Why you might ask? That is a great question. It means change, permanent change. That scares people at the best of time and with the protentional of regressing in our score, it frightens the heck out of all golfers. Personally, I have been there. However, I do have on thing that helps to progress me forward.
The decision to move forward is driven by two things. Hope and desire to be a better player. The hope aspect is one that all golfers have. I think everyone hopes they are making the proper decision and that never changes. Hope is a quintessential aspect of all our make up and will be present in all major decisions, especially golf decisions. Hope is what starts to improvement process to make the decision in the first place.
The second aspect of leaving our old game for a new one is desire. Desire is a strong feeling that impels us to the attainment something that is within reach: a desire for a new and better golf game. Desire is the driving force to lower our golf scores. If the desire is big enough, we can overcome all obstacles including the fear of bridging the gap to a better golf game. This driving force is key to any golfer improving and has sustained me over the years as I strived to improve. I will admit my desire is waning a bit over the years, but it is still alive and present. Therefore, I am hoping for improvements this year as I pursue a better golf game.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
