If there is anything I know, golfing at anytime is always good. On this particular day, it would be even better, but unfortunately it is not on my schedule. However, for those heading out to the links I thought I would drop you a couple of hints that would help lower your golf score!
Not playing much this year (actually hardly at all) I realize that my skills will atrophy. This is a short-term problem, but to lower my golf scores when I return, I have to focus on some very basic swing thoughts. I thought I would share them with you because they transcend all areas of our game. Here is what I think:
Have fun. My game, as yours I am sure, fluctuates. The main thin to keep in mind is to remember golf is suppose to be fun. Yes from time to time we get frustrated, but it is suppose to be fun.
Stay focused. Staying in the moment when shooting any shot is critical to proper execution. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the lie, weather, conditions or just life and I do not focus as much as I should. When you are on the links today, take that extra second to stay focused.
Play each shot. I sometimes get into a ‘as routine’ way of playing golf. I always hit my X club from this distance or it is always a 3 wood off the tee here. These are traps and failures that I work on constantly. I think I need to play each shot better and use the variables around me to make the right shot.
Well those are my thoughts for today. As you head to the links, I am sure there are many other thoughts going through your mind, but if you keep what I suggest in mind, I can envision you shooting lower golf scores.
Have an awesome Wednesday on the links!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
