Keep Calm and Play On

Harry Vardon is a golfing legend. He not only dominate the world of golf about 100 years ago, he also set the standard for how the game is played today. He has passed on many tidbits of vital information and none more important and to remain calm when playing. It should be the cornerstone of your game if want to consistently shoot low golf scores.

Vardon’s words drive deep in my golfing psyche. The calmer my mind is the better I play. Most of the time my calmness is directly related to me being in the moment when I play. Of course I am human and do not always play this way, but when I do, good things happen.

As I prepare for 2019, this is another thing that will go on my list of things to be mindful of. My list is growing, but I can see a plan developing that will help guide me to success.

Are you in a tranquil frame of mind when you play golf?

  1. I’ve recognized a few things that cause me to lose the proper mental state while playing. One is socializing. Another is long waits. Both of those make it more difficult for me to stay in the zone throughout a round. There are others, but nothing that even comes close to causing me as much trouble as those two. Those are areas I’ve worked on this past year. I feel like I’ve made some good progress with the waiting aspect at least. And my 2 over round last week is the best I’ve ever done when not playing alone. I’m not sure if that’s a fluke or progress though. I’ll have to keep at it and see how it goes. But it’s reason for hope.
