Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, and Robert Garrigus have all had major blowups recently. Jean Claude Van de Velde…ouch.
I have had too many to count and so have all of you.
The fix is so simple, yet seemingly impossible. All you have to do is treat every golf shot as if it were in a vacuum and try to hit it as well as you can…regardless of your score on that hole, day, or tournament.
That is they key to golf. One of the few cliches in golf that are true. One shot at a time. Tiger is quite literally the best in the history of the game at this…I have been terrible in my career, but am making an effort to be better.
AHA!!!!! That is how you get better at this and everything else at golf. This concept and everything about golf is terribly difficult. Need for immediate gratification stunts the improvement of all facets of our games.
The way to get better at this or any other facet of golf is to make an effort to be better than yesterday…and you will be better 6 months from now.
There is no such thing as fixing it today. That is a lost cause. Just make an effort to be better and you will be…just 6 months from now.
I know I say this from time to time, but this is probably the best advice I have written. The better I do this, the better chance I will have of achieving my goal.
