It is that time again, Mid January / Early February. I get in my head and start to think about what I need to change to get ready for the 2020 golf season. Unfortunately, I am like a hamster spinning a wheel in my mind, but never really accomplishing much. It is a difficult time for many golfers in the northern climes and one I try to temper!
In years past I convinced myself to make major swing changes, that I needed to buy new equipment, I needed to stop playing, and to switch sides of the ball; the last one was particularly helpful. I get in my head and play the ‘what if’ game with poor results.
On a side note, I did have help with my article today. I only had to start over twice because Windsor either licked or touched the keyboard. But, that is okay, he was just trying to help.
Back to preventing a golfing disaster by staying focused on my current plan. Well, the makings of one anyway. I will be setting some goals very soon and they will help propel my game to a new level this year. They will also help guide any potential changes that will lower my golf scores. It really is a simple process and I need to stay true to it.
So, I am resisting the urge to change (although I am still being introspective). I think this year (as in years past) I will develop a golf plan early that is flexible to allow for modifications as the year unfolds. Being flexible is very important and will help me ensure that the changes I make are the right ones for my game.
Do you experience times when you have the urge to make changes for the sake of change? If so, what is it?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
