All of us (including me) need some tough love when it comes to our golf games.
I will get on point after I tear into myself.
So as not to be a hypocrite, I will give myself the hammer first.
Right now, I stink at tournament golf. I used to be pretty good, but right now I am terrible.
I have spent so much time trying to rediscover my feel throughout the bag, my ability to perform at a competitive level is atrocious right now.
Why? Because it takes time to improve at golf. I am making an effort to rid my brain of mechanical thoughts and redirect to playing the game. Right now, I am awful, but I am making an effort every day to get better…the only way to do that…play tournaments and make an effort to be better each time.
Which brings me to the title of this post…and the same thing will apply to anything you are working on.
If you need to shorten your swing, it is not going to be shorter in a bucket of balls, a day or a week…but if you make an effort each time you swing to be shorter, a month or two from now you will have the length swing you want.
Just like I will be better at tournament golf when I have played 5, 10, 20 more of them.
