Mind Over Putter to Better Your Golf Score

“They say every golfer is just two shots away from crazy. One bad shot you can deal with. Two in a row and you go nuts. I try to stop the cycle after one”.

These are the words of Joseph Parent, PhD, author of Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game. This golf book is one of the numerous publications which have emphasized on the importance of mind in the game of golf.

Top Tips to Prepare Yourself For The Summer Golf Season

Golfers are generally hardy souls and there are a number in our ranks that will play whatever the weather, come rain, wind or shine all year round. These dedicated souls are the ones you see out on the course, brollies in hand in the middle of December, still cheerful and still enjoying the game.

Yet there is also a significant number of golfers who do put the clubs away for the winter. Some take a break because they don’t like playing in the poorer weather, or for others in cooler climes weather conditions make it impossible for play.

Are You Fit For Golf?

One of the biggest and most appealing aspects of golf is that it can be played by almost anybody. There are many different clubs that help people with a wide range of disabilities play the game and as long as you can swing a golf club, then in theory at least, you can play the game to some degree.

However, as increasing numbers of golfers are realising, there is a difference in being fit to play golf and being fit enough to play golf to the maximum of your ability.

Does My Choice Of Golf Ball Matter?

What kind of golfer are you when it comes to the golf ball you select to play with each round? Do you always have the same ball, same brand, same variety that you have used religiously for many years and won’t even contemplate changing, or are you a golfer who reaches into the bag and grabs any ball that comes to hand to tee of with?

It’s an interesting question because when I think back to playing a few rounds with my friends over the last few summers, I have a mix within that group and oddly enough, the mix is not based on ability with the golf ball.
