Even though I have the answer and will reveal it tonight, the answer can not overcome trying out a new driver and not taking your old one with you. Because of a very poor driving day, I failed to break 80, even though the conditions for November 23rd were just about perfect, with temps in the 50’s at the start and pushing into the 60’s, with very little wind. The answer applies to all three phases of the game. So without further ado here is the answer.
THE ANSWER TO PLAYING THE BEST GOLF THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY PLAY, IS TO FIND YOUR “THAT DAY GOLF SWING, YOUR THAT DAY SHORT GAME METHOD, AND YOUR THAT DAY PUTTING STROKE” AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
Another way to think about this is to abandon that swing thought, before it abandons you. What is your that day golf swing etc.? I will discuss this in depth, about all three phases in furture blogs. For now I can tell you, what it is not. It is not what you were doing in your last round no matter how good it felt, maybe. Notice I did say maybe, but more on that later. It is the ability to find your game quickly in all three phases that determines how you will play that day. This in my mind will be the most fascinating thing in trying to play this goofy game. You will have to face each new round with an open mind and not rely on an anchor from the previous round or practice session. I don’t know why this is the answer but I know that it is. I will only have a few more times to play this year to try to execute the answer, but each blog will discuss what if any progress I have made. Next week the full swing up to this point.
