We, apparently, hit a nerve when we posted our first article, "2016 Golf Season Preparation". It was, honestly, a way to reach out to the general golf community, but, as most of you probably recognized, it was an introduction to how our passion is to G.O.L.F.
In light of that, we'll separate the two and those of you who would like to read a bit more of our inspirational stuff within the world of golf can do so......
The first question each golfer must ask himself/herself, in my opinion, before starting off on a grandiose golf preparation plan for the next season is;
"What am I trying to to accomplish?"
Golf is one of those games that takes alot of preparation through all aspects of this complex game, so, it is very important to be honest with oneself before setting off on some very lofty goal. Therefore, it is important to be realistic with yourself about your current state of play and what you want to accomplish as you work to improve. Here are the questions I ask after the first one....
1. Do you want to break par?
2. Do you want to be an 80's shooter?
3. Do you just not want to embarrass yourself in 2016?
The answer to these questions is critical because the magnitude of your instruction and practice evolves from the answer that you give. Let's look at question #3 first......
Do you just not want to embarrass yourself in 2016? Golf is an embarrassing game! It seems that the appreciation we get from continuing to play the game outweighs the numerous times we embarrass ourselves, so, if we want to reduce the number of embarrassing moments on the golf course so that it will be more enjoyable, then we can. How are we most embarrassed?
