Welcome back all! Chapter 2 has got to be my favorite chapter of all time! For me, I felt a tremendous amount of pressure melt away after learning this perspective. Why was I spending so much time and energy focusing on "performance"? Why did care so much about what others thought? This allowed me the freedom to explore my game in ways I've never thought of before. I hope that you find this an inspiring as I did!
Chapter Two: Purpose
Why do you play golf?
What has you taking golf lessons?
Where would you say you spend most of your energy, time and money on?
How do you resonate with the left vs. right column example on page 25?
How did it make you feel after reading the "letter to self"?
Chapter Three: The Culture of Golfers
Old Culture: "There is something wrong with my swing and I must fix it."
New Culture: "There is something going on in my swing and I must be aware of it."
We're not all robot so why are we trying to push every human golfer in that perfect swing? That logic can seem so simple but here we are trying to master a craft that works really well for one person but what about the rest? The key is awareness! Results, performance, learning and enjoyment all come from awareness. Want to play better? Become aware!
Through your own experience, what has helped you become more aware of areas in your swing?
I also believe that this awareness is important to look at in all aspects of golf: mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and mechanical.
