The golf season is finally upon us. Having played 3 times this week, I am ready for a short break. However, the euphoria of finally playing is far from wearing off. For many of my fellow Canadians (Mike and Josh), the long wait is over and we are starting to hone our game. But there is something we should remember as we took our first swing of 2017 – the feeling!
You may wonder why I bring up this strange topic. In addition to improving our game, I think it is important to feel the emotion of playing golf; to do this, I need to remember how I felt swinging the club for the first time in the spring. This one small gesture helps me mentally prepare for future rounds, ease my frustration when my game goes south, and to remind me how much I enjoying playing golf.
I realize this seems like quite a responsibility for such a short moment in time, but strong positive emotions can have a tremendous influence on the outcome of many things. I am not the only one to feel this way either, here is what others said:
I am a grateful golfer.
I would fall into the 54%, but that is how I feel. Golf offers different things to everyone, it is a matter of figuring out what it means to you.
How would you describe your first swing of 2017? Will you be able to remember the feeling throughout the year?
