I have finally figured out the secret to a fantastic golf game! It is something I have searched for and now understand what it is! Am so surprised that I did not stumble on this easy solution earlier and save myself years of frustration. Wow, I feel lighter and invigorated for my 2019 golf season!
My big reveal is: Lower My Expectations! Yup, stop striving to be a better player. Stop worrying about course management. Just let my game unfold and when things get tough, lower my expectations again! This way I will never be disappointed with my golf game!
I am sure by now you are shaking your head and wondering what the heck is going on…..well, let me tell you!
As I dream about golfing in 2019, I continually think about how my mental game is going to fair after missing a year! I wonder about my confidence to hit the shot I need, when I need it. This self-doubt is partly due to my journey of recovery from my treatments in 2018 and partly due to not playing as much as I want or need to sustain my low handicap. That is until I came across this short video:
Jeff Ritter’s video hit home with me and I need to stop worrying about what might happen and go make it happen when I play. I have a feeling I will still have to work to regain my confidence, but increasing my course confidence is a great first step when it is time to tee it up in the spring.
What are your thoughts about playing reckless? Good idea or not?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
