Talking about golf everyday is great fun. I enjoy writing my musings down to help and sharing them. If you are a regular follower, you understand that most of the time our discussions is more about idea sharing than actually changing the fundamental aspects of our golf swing. I have not made any major changes in years, but only tweak things here and there. Rob Bensted (a twitter follower of The Grateful Golfer) reminded me that my daily writings could be misconstrued as someone who does not have a consistent golf swing because I am always changing things. Well that is just not so.
There is a difference between working on your fundamental swing than making a significant change. There are times when a change is required, don’t be afraid. Be brave like Brian Penn, from All About Golf, who 3 years ago started the journey of changing his golf swing. He was successful before, but stopped improving. Now, his potential seems limitless. He wrote an article about a lesson he took years back that is well worth the read.
Working on my golf swing is an evolution. I cannot score lower if I do not try making minor adjusts. How will I ever know if what I am doing is the right thing if I am afraid to step out my comfort zone? The short answer is I cannot; so I must try to evolve my game with changing so many things that a revolution is started in my head and body where nothing works.
As you continue to read my ramblings, please keep the perspective that our discussions help evolve my game. If I need drastic changes, I will seek professional help with a specific question or challenge. It does not mean that every time we take a lesson that a revolution has started, it just means that a second set of eyes can help refine our fundamentals better than what we can do on our own.
Is your game in a state of Evolution or Revolution?
