is Like Life
In Golf you
have to stay in the moment.
If you think about the last shot (yesterday) or the next shot (tomorrow)
you lose your intention and focus from the only thing you have any
control of, the current shot (today). You also miss out on what's
happening "in the now" because you are worrying about
the past or the future.
Even if you
are competing or playing with others, it always comes down to
just you and your own game. Ultimately you can't compare
yourself to others or try to play their game, it doesn't
work. Find your own best
game, and playing it the best you can.
In golf, always
practice honesty and integrity.
It is easy to cheat at golf, lots of people do it; but to what end?
To have a lower score? It is a false accounting of who you are and
how well you are doing. How are you going to know that you are really
improving and getting better at the game(life) if you aren't being
honest about where you have come from, where you are right now,
and where you want to be? The temptation to cheat so others have
a higher view of you is quite hard to resist sometimes. But again,
what they think of you and your game, ultimately matters very little.
no matter how bad the circumstances are. If you can learn to look
around you when you are playing golf and see how beautiful your
surroundings are, or how much you enjoy being with the people you
are with, no matter HOW badly your golf game is, you can learn to
do that in the rest of your life.
will always change.
If you are playing horrible golf today, it may be better tomorrow.
If you focus on how badly you are playing, it only gets worse. Take
it in stride, don't take it personally and don't give up, it'll
character. You can tell a lot about a man or woman by how they act
when they are playing really bad golf. Do they take it in stride
and continue to strive to get
better, or do they swear and throw clubs and blame the
ball or the club or the foursome in front of them for making them
It's only a
game. While your golfing, practice
not taking life so seriously. There's a tee time, 18
holes, (more if your lucky:-) and a final score.
Next time you
play, ask yourself: Did you show up on time? Did you enjoy and do
the best you could while playing? Appreciate
the time out on the course. You won't regret it when it's
a difference in the lifes of others!
