You’ve been looking forward to this day for months now. The snow is finally melting; the winter freeze has finally thawed; flowers are blooming; birds are singing, and this can all mean only one thing. It’s time to play golf! You’ve been tripping over your clubs in the garage all winter, finally its time to pull them out and play!
With last year’s drives and putts but a dim memory, you head out to begin a new season of play. This is why you breathe! Your shoes are 풀싸롱 comfortably broken in. You have a new towel and golf glove from Santa, but mostly you want to try out the new driver that your lovely bride managed to surprise you with on Christmas morning.
As you line up to enjoy your first swing of the season, it all comes flooding back to you. This is hard! You try to relax and keep your eye on the ball for your first swing! What the heck went wrong?! Perhaps you are trying to swing at the ball with just your arms and wrists again. So you line up once more, and this time you remember to use all of your muscles, legs, stomach, back, and sweet! What a difference that made.
Even though you know it’s going to take a bit to get back into the swing of things, literally, you are floating as you move to the next hole where you get a little refresher in why you have spent so much money on your clubs over the years. Now that you’ve remembered to hit down and through the ball, the club is doing the work (instead of you), and once again what a difference in velocity! Unbelievable!
Next as you’re halfway through your first game of the season, you’re starting to think about all of the “little things” too much, and you’re getting tense. For a strong and consistent swing you know that you need to relax and follow through; so for the next hole, you give that a try. Oh yea — this is why you play golf!
