Thanks for dropping by.
I hope the ideas I share here and in my books will help you understand how to enjoy your golf, regardless of the situation, your score, the result or outcome, or how you are playing.
Enjoying and finding meaning in the challenge of this wonderful but difficult game is fundamental in developing a long lasting, healthy relationship with it, and is the foundation of mental strength, resilience, consistency and confidence.
Many of these ideas are the opposite of the advice and tuition offered by mainstream golf instruction (and those prevalent in wider society) . It is widely assumed that perfecting your swing, playing better and achieving more will automatically lead to a better experience of the game.
But is that true? How often have you improved one aspect of your golf, only for another to let you down? When you do play well, how long do the feelings of satisfaction last for? When you win a competition or lower your handicap, how long before you feel the need to prove yourself again?
How many Tour professionals, the best players in the world, are genuinely happy people?
When the game becomes hard work and a golfer becomes disillusioned, the standard offering from the mainstream golf instruction industry is a simple binary choice.
Either a quick tip or fix, or a major swing rebuild, accompanied by the warning ‘it will probably get worse before it gets better.’
But if you’ve been round that loop a few times and are curious about a different way of learning and playing the game, please have a look round the site.
