I am hitting the course for the third time this year. My tee off is a bit later in the morning to allow for the temperature to rise. It is going to be a great time, but I do not have my usual plan in place before I tee it up. It is very early in the season and I am still evaluating my physical conditioning before I dive head first into a training plan. I have done this before, but I generally like to have some direction for each round that fits into a large scheme to improve.
I am sure many of you are thinking that I am crazy for wanting to establish some sort of intention before playing. However, as an amateur, this helps me stay focused on various aspects of my swing and course management. It is this approached that results in my best scores and greatest improvement.
Now, not having a specific plan from time to time is not that big a deal. However, it just feels funny aimlessly playing golf. I am not ready to aggressively pursue anything because I am not sure what I can do physically. I still need to find this out.
Funny, after writing this I guess I do have a plan for today. I am evaluating my physical condition. That is something. The last two rounds were at complete opposite ends of the physical spectrum. After the first round I was exhausted. After the second round, I was feeling fairly strong. So, I am really curious what today will bring.
There you go, after all this I talked myself in a big ole circle. Well regardless, I am playing golf today and I am excited to see where my game is physically.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
