You must Struggle to Succeed:

Struggling in order to succeed is not an easy notion to come to terms with. It is extremely difficult to understand and accept that failure is needed to have success. But it's within the hardship that great golfers have developed an understanding that in order to be the best, there will be ups and downs throughout their journey.  


Golf is such a difficult sport as it stands. And sometimes being caught up in your own game can be hindering. Being completely honest with yourself is something great players have in common. They accept the reality of the situation. They don't come up with excuses, just solutions.

Practice with a Purpose:

Simple but true. Practicing with a purpose has so much power to it. Little goals that are achievable and record-able are great ways to change your practices. This doesn’t necessarily mean your practices need to be hours and hours spent on the range. A detailed practice with an exact purpose will propel your game and something great golfers get in the habit of. 

Be your own Best Friend:

Golf is hard, there is no need to make it harder on yourself. The best golfers know exactly when to be their own best friend out on the course. Even the greats are humans. They make mistakes, but they also are the first to recognize what they are doing and make the right corrections needed. Positive self-talk goes a long way, especially in the right moment.

Stick with your Pre and Post Routines:

Solidifying your pre and post routines are very crucial. Take the time to really have these two components down. In the heat of the moment, this is something you can ground yourself in. You see all great golfers have this to a tee. More so that people have timed Tiger Woods’s routine and have figured out his routines were within a margin of a few seconds. This type of detail is what great players have ingrained in their games.
