As amateur golfers, we face many obstacles to playing good golf. I am sure their is an endless list of areas of our game that need improvement. For years, I have worked at my list and figured out that I could have quickly eliminated that I could have made faster progress by following one basic tenant to playing golf. It is something difficult accomplish, but provides that ‘ah ha’ moment once completed.
Over the years, I have tried many different techniques, drills, and methods to improve my golf game. Some worked and some not so much; but through all my trials and tribulations, I found that one of several things have to happen. Now that I found it, I know that I can improve any area of my game faster and more effectively than in the past. All I have to do is:
Regardless of what situation we found ourselves in on the golf course, committing to whatever shot you selected is critical to lower golf shores. It is important to quiet the white noise and focus on success. The only true way to take your game to the next level is to commit to every shot. This is something that I try do each time I select what I am going do next on the course.
I find that when things go awry on the course, it is usually because I am not committing to my shots and I am focused on ‘what ifs’. My confidence is shaken and I start to question my approach. This mental failure has a negative impact on my scores and has the potential to have lasting affects on the current round and perhaps the next as well.
So you can see how the domino affect of not committing to your shot can hurt your overall game. It has the potential to stop the progress to game improvement, increase your golf scores, and send you spiraling in to the world of ‘can’ts’!
So, if you are looking to be a grateful golfer (or you know a better player), I recommend you commit to every shot and see what happens next.
