New Years Resolutions and Golf

New Years Resolutions and Golf …

What go they have in common?

Golf and New Years.  Every New Years the majority of us make some sort of resolution.  Whether it be to get in shape, eat healthier, or even improve our golf game.  And just like the Geico commercials, it’s what we do!

Many players SAY they want to get better but the majority don’t know HOW to accomplish their goals.  They don’t know how to practice, what to think, manage their way around the golf course, or what to work on so they toss that golf and New Years resolution aside!

Here’s an example of what NOT to think!

You stand on the tee box and see water right. You tell yourself don’t hit it in the water. You make your swing and it goes exactly where you didn’t want it to go…in the water.  Hit it where you don’t want to…it’s what you do!

The best players in the world have a coach to help guide them.  But yet, the average player thinks taking golf lessons is a waste of time!  This may sound strange, but for many that’s true!

You see, my job as a coach is to help the player achieve their goals(s).  This means I need to get to the root of the issue(s), develop a plan for success and prescribe the improvements…it’s what I do!

But there’s another part of to this equation.

The player has to absorb and apply my recommendations!  Golf
