Do Old Golf Habits Make Sense or Hurt Your Golf Game

I read many quotes, stories, reports and articles over the past bunch of years.

How to Play Golf?

The dawn of a new day! What a great time to play golf!

What a great question!  If a poll was taken of 100 different teaching pros on what is the most important skill required to play golf, I bet there would be 100 different answers!  Golf is a unique sport where the elusive perfect swing comes in a million forms.  Yes, a million forms!

The golf swing is a series of different movements broken down, analyzed, and taught at varying skill levels.  Each player requires something unique to match their fitness, coordination, and willingness to change.  Reading many great articles from White Dragon Golf, Mind Body Golf, Golf Habits, GP Golf Report, or Hitting it Solid, I have concluded that great advice is found for those who are searching.  However, to break 100 consistently or to maintain a single digit handicap each player has to find their own way on how to play golf.  Golfers must find their swing, develop it, and hone the skills required to find their perfect swing.

If you are just starting golf or wondering how to play better, all I can say is welcome to the endless merry-go-round of trying to improve your swing.  It will be challenging, frustrating and exhilarating all at the same time!  The first time you hit the shot of your life, you will want to hit a better one!  What a vicious circle…..no wonder golf is the greatest sport!

Golf is really meant to be played; the only way to get better is to practice, play, adjust, practice and play; then repeat one million times.  It seems like a pretty simple system, well give it a try.  Actually, golf is meant to be enjoyed!  If you are not having fun, then what is the point.

Finally, 3underthru12 has a fantastic video on how to play golf that will make you laugh. For some of us seasoned golfers, we will remember watching it when it first came out!  For others, enjoy it for the first time.

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