How to improve our golf game is a quest of all aspiring players. I have mentioned this before and trying to find that one golden tip or the perfect swing is daunting. I have researched, tried, invented (or made a version of) and butchered many golf drills. Created golf plans for the off-season. I have used videos, books, blogs, and magazines as a golf library looking for that one drill that will make me a better golfer!
I think all the above is very important because it expands my knowledge of the game. I have stated many times before that expanding my knowledge is the first step towards lowering my golf score and that has not changed. During the off-season, I spend much of my time on the quest for knowledge, but somehow I keep thinking I am missing something. Then yesterday, I saw this on Twitter:
Then it hit me, during this off-season I think I am just wishing for changes. I dream of being a scratch golfer, but I am not sure I am walking the walk! It is easy to sit behind my computer and surf the internet, read a book, or leaf through a magazine thinking I am working towards lower golf scores. Yes, this activity helps, but is it really enough to make any difference come spring?
Every year I have a golf plan to lower scores. This year is no different. I have not outlined what I am doing this year because it is the same as every year, but I now realize it is not enough. So, I am heading back to the drawing board to come up with a new plan. I realize I need to ‘work’ a bit harder if I plan to become a scratch golfer!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
