Golf is a very frustrating sport!
I think I have the form for it, then a negative thought gets in my head, and I’m right back where I started. With golf I have learned what is takes to be truly good at something when just skill can’t carry me all the way. When I go to my coach, it shows if I have done what he has told me to do or if I have ignored his instruction. I have learned respect and dedication for the game. This game is not about hitting and strategy but about keeping control of emotion and nerves. I cannot let one bad shot ruin my entire round. I have to let that one bad shot go and move on in the game. There is a reason it is known as a “gentleman’s game.” It teaches me the value of honor: no matter how bad my round is, at the end of the game I take off my hat and shake the hand of my opponent and thank them for a good game.
