Great Golf Requires Work

Listening to Jack Nicklaus

I really do not have much to add to Jack Nicklaus’ words. Great golf does require work and a willingness to fail. This thought process seems counter productive, but in fact no great golfer has ever made it to the top of their game without a few stumbles along the way.

Building confidence through consistent effort can only result in lower golf scores. They are all connected an only you can decide just how far you want to take your game. Of course there are limitations to everything, but only those who push their envelope really achieve greatness.

I hope everyone has an awesome day. Create the day you want, because you are the only one who can. Oh yeah, don’t forget to be grateful!

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. I hit the range tonight. I hit a bucket full of short swings. Like 70-100 yards for my pw. Went through the bag doing that even with clubs I don’t normally try that with on the course like my woods though I spent most of it with the shorter clubs. It’s not my favorite practice routine, but I find it one of the most helpful routines I do where lowering my score is concerned.

      • No luck playing today. I have to wait until Friday this week. I had to run errands today and tomorrow all day for the family. Maybe I’ll get a break long enough to hit the close range again tomorrow though. I can do the same workout in the grass instead of on the mat tomorrow. They only allow us on the grass Thursday and Sunday there. Another reason I like the range on the other side of town where there are no mats better.

        I don’t like practicing on mats because I can’t mark where the ball is and see where my divots start. Another area where having the information helps.

        I hope you get out on Friday and your that your practice helps lower your score. It is interesting that your course only lets you practice on the grass two days a week. I am not a mat player either.



      • It’s a tiny range with a 9 hole par 3 course and another 9 hole training facility for kids. We have better ranges in town, this is just the closest one. I can ride my bike there and do, often. I think they force us on the mats to keep the costs down. But I go there anyway just to support them. The work they do with the kids is important. I just didn’t think what day it was. I had some free time and took advantage.

      • I like applause. Thanks. The kids are worth it. But you have to be careful. I once went out to play and had a couple of kids added to our twosome. One was 12 (girl) the other was 16 (boy). And both beat us. They were from the David Ledbetter Golf School so that took a tiny bit of the sting out of it. That was years ago. I’m hoping my game has gotten good enough that the next time I face off against a 12 year old little cutie, I can at least give her a real game.
