Improving Our Golf Game By Mark Crossfield

Most golfers I know want to shoot lower scores. They seem to work diligently for a short period of time hoping (yes, I used the word hoping) to miraculously find the touch that will propel them to a better game. Well, I was one of those players at one time, but have managed to find my way to better golf. Although I am always looking for ways to improve, Mark Crossfield narrows down how to improve into three main areas. I wish I had known these many years ago; especially the last one.

Managing expectations is a critical aspect of any golfers performance.  How we feel about our latest round is directly related to how we expected to play that day.  How many of us have shot 100 or 90 or 80 or 70 and felt we had a fantastic round.  We exceeded our expectations of that day and felt awesome about our golf game.  After playing well last time, we shoot the same score and walked off disappointed, frustrated and wondering what went wrong.  Most of the time, nothing went wrong, we just expected to do better! Therefore, managing our expectations is critical to improving our golf game. It is challenging, but doable.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
