I was thinking about how my greatest hits in golf are rooted in the simplicity of perfection. Rick Williams, one of my original followers of The Grateful Golfer, routinely talks about how music puts him in the mood to cook. Following his lead, I decided to think of what type of music I would listen too on the range to help me groove my swing that would lead to my greatest hits of golf!
After giving it some thought, I found two ‘greatest hits’ CDs that would work to get me focused on my swing and provide me something new to hum when on the course. I am not an expert, but my many years as an athlete has taught me that music, the right music, can enhance my performance. In the case of golf, I need something that will put me in the proper mind-set to perform well and the right tempo to help with my swing.
So, I decided to buy two ‘greatest hits’ CDs that I think will help me achieve my goals. The first album is Queen’s Greatest Hits (with Freddie Mercury). This album is designed to get me pumped and excited to play golf. It is something I would use before going to the range to focus my efforts on playing well.
The second CD is Abba’s Greatest Hits. This album has some great tempo songs and I am looking forward to finding the exact song I need to improve my game. I have listen to Abba before know there is a song in there for me.
This experiment is going to be fun. Regardless, I will listen to some great music as I play the game I love. I am not sure it is going to work, but I have heard that many players listen to music to when practicing. I guess the real trick is to pick the music that best suits my game.
Do you listen to music when practicing on the range?
