Re: What is your #1 golf tip for golf improvementI think that serious athletic skills are simply a product of genetic freakishness or inherited mutation. Either way, all the hard work in the world won't make you really good unless you're born with abnormal potential.
I know that this theory disqualifies me as a candidate to become a motivational speaker. I was an 8 or 9 most of my adult life, briefly a 7 at my very best, and now I'm an 11 at age 63. I could have practiced day and night, ignored every other aspect of my life, and still never become a +4 like the top touring pros. Maybe, if I did nothing else, I could have sniffed a 5 handicap. Maybe not.
If you want to play golf really well, though, I'd seriously suggest being the love child of Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam. That would give you a good leg up.
