How did my golf game go today?
Personally, I thought I did pretty badly. Why? My pre-occupied mind….Troubled, when it shouldn’t be…Many thoughts flowing or stuck in a rut…One lesson from a novice golfer like myself, leave your troubles off the green, your game will be for the better. Golf really really cannot do without focus, concentration, patience and bit of self confidence..
Today, balls are flying all over the range…Left, Right Center…Mishit, etc..Really cannot go to the range with a mind like mine today..But luckily the last ten balls, I managed to convince myself to throw whatever disturbing thoughts off my mind and truly focus on hitting the ball…yes, I managed a clean hit in all ten balls, with 120m using a no.7 iron….Prove: Concentrate and Focus is truly important in a golf game…..
Okay, I guess probably I have hit a plateau…I probably need a break before I head back to the green again.
1. Grip must be soft..In the past, I simply held on too tight. Cardinal Sin!
2. Relax…Rome wasn’t built in a day, so I must be patient to get my swing in order 1st before I go for distance. Today, I managed 120m on no.7 Iron but it is not consistent. Consistency is more important than distance.
Well, nothing in this world is impossible, it all depends on how much u desire that result, that object, etc. Someone once said, anything and everything can be done, it all depends if you can pay the price, whether that object of desire is worth it or not…That said, it doesn’t mean that I work my balls off on my golf game, I will become Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods..Working hard probably won’t bring me there…but perhaps working smart will..but is it worth the price? I don’t think I am that passionate yet…though I must admit it is growing on me all the time. I long to hit that perfect swing that will send the ball flying…..> Keep the faith! Not forget practising!
This applies to my life too. There are certain objects of desire in my life, that I truly desire, like that long awaited to Tibet trip, dive trip to Palau…definitely achieveable with hard work and savings…and yes, work hard I will and smart my working style will be…..yet there are things/objectives that cannot be met with sheer hardwork… will bitch about that in due time..when I am back from my trip again…perhaps there is no need to bitch as it is quite pointless to bitch also…
