About this blog

Every golfer has the thought at some point..

"If only I could consistently shoot in the 70s, then I would enjoy golf more."

We get lost in our heads, dreaming of a fantasy where golf was one day an easy game.

What if we didn't have to worry about water hazards, sand, or OB?

What if 3-footers didn't bring us anxiety?

What if we could enjoy that pure strike that we long for on every single shot?

I'd argue that the better a golfer gets, the more enjoyable the game is.

But.. not in the way that most golfers imagine.

In this post, I will be examining our love affair with golf, how we can enjoy the failures that the game inevitably brings us, and why golf will never get easier (but can become more enjoyable).

    • Number 4 is interesting to me. I've been entering State Mid-Am qualifiers the past two years. The first year, I played well but missed qualifying. Last year, I sucked ass. I thought after last year that I would take a break and try to get a little better before trying to qualify again. But maybe I should keep entering and try to get more used to playing in these. Food for thought, for sure.
    • I've been having a few meetings with a sports psychologist who wants to have lessons for golfers.  One of the, not revolutionary, but different ways of thinking about performance for every time you play is to try and beat your average, instead of thinking about beating your best or your handicap (at least it is different to me, and I guess makes me relax a bit more instead of trying overly hard to perform). This way, the goal is more achievable and yet serves the same purpose of trying to get be
    • That’s why I posted it. It’s not just for juniors.
    • At the risk of being redundant, this can apply to everyone.
    • Just found this thread-fascinating. No idea what is driving this ...seems to have history...I love the topic of Belief. "Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case regardless of empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty.  Truth is a term used to indicate various forms of accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal.  Fact: something that is known to have happened or to exist
