"Act Without Expectation"
What does golf teach you? Approach the game asking this question. Is the game attempting to speak to you from a bigger perspective? We know that golf is a game, but it is also a chance to do some self reflection. The ball sits there until we hit it. We may have fun with our friends out on the course drinking beer and enjoying the social aspects. But if we sit quietly for a moment and think about the times we have played our best, what is happening? The best players in the world understand that and become masters at using the game as their teacher and their method for self development.
For me personally, I find the constant need to slow down, to stop and smell the roses. Golf gives me that outlet, if I let it. Start to pay attention to what the 4 - 5 hours is wanting to teach you or the solitude in hitting a bucket of balls. If we learn to ask different questions, we might like the answers and the game can become more than hitting a little white ball into a hole. It can be a chance to improve ourselves a little and grow in the process.
