Golf can be enjoyable hobby to some, an obsession for others, even a religion to a dedicated few!
For me, playing golf can be considered as life lessons! Life is like golf and golf is like life! Nobody is asking how you looked but what you shot. Arnold Palmer once said that golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening-and it is the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
The Golf Grip
Your golf grip forms the foundation of a good golf swing. It is because the grip is your only contact with the golf club and ultimately the golf ball. There are a few basic types of golf grip that is entirely based on your personal preference such as Interlocking Grip, Vardon Grip, Baseball Grip etc.
The holding golf grip is just like how you handling your work everyday. You will definitely need some tools or daily necessities in our daily life.
The Goal Setting
It is important for a golfer to set a desired results before they start the game. You need to first have target and visualize how you would like the ball to get to reach the target before every single swing. So begin by imagining a time in the future when you have already achieved your goal. Really be there and you have already done it. See what you would see, hear how would you hear and feel what you feel or even taste and smell what it's like.
Setting a target or having a dream is crucial for every individual. It is the motivative to push us to a higher level and ultimately achieve our goal. The most important thing is enjoying the process instead of glorious results.
Golfer must put it to reach their goal by various techniques that required constant training and practices. This is the most challenging part in the entire game. Besides arming yourself with drive shot,lay up shot, chip shot or putting before you reach the hole, you must also encounter various obstacles such as the wind directions or bear with the scorching sun.
The constant practice is the only way to polish your skill and there is no short cut to it. Similarly, if you are not good in English, try to read or write an article everyday. Remember practice makes perfect! There is nothing you can't do without putting in effort.
Also, the strong wind is part of the obstacles we might face in our daily life. You will need to face the problems until you are used to it. With the acquisition of knowledge and skills, every shot can be approached with the expectation.
Majority of golfers have major problems with inconsistency that are detrimental to golfing success. Thus, it is vital to maintain a consistency and keeping you at the correct pathway. It is useless to win only ONE battle but lose in the rest battles. Thus, we must Focus on the correct timing to get straight ball flight and consistent direction.
Golf is such a competitive game, played closely between two people. That attitudes and personality enter into golf matches more than in any other sport. Your opponent and the other players see the way you behave on the course. They can be good friends but there can never be any friendly games. The competitors or opponents can undoubtedly motivated you to achieve a higher level.
Attitude should be held towards winning and losing. Rudyard Kipling has said that one must treat those two imposters, victory and defeat as equals. There is no strongest person in the universe, anybody can be better than you on any given day. You must gracefully accept it and with quiet determination to do better next time. The ideal is to lose gracefully and to win graciously. Golf has so many ups and downs that a cocky golfer is out of place. This is one of the best lesson in playing golf.
People who enjoy the process can achieve the best results. If we can have fun,then it will be less tense in our minds. Tension or stress can be number one deterrent to further improvements. After all, playing golf and being forced to deal with our own failures really does mirror everyday!
Golf strengthens the heart, liberates poisons from the lungs and rids the body in a natural manner through the skin of acid deposits. It rejuvenates the mental powers as if by magic and is a sovereign balm for worry and anxiety.
In addition, the beautiful golf courses around the world is definitely a passion, obsession, a romance, a nice acquaintanceship with trees, sand and water.
