"Act Without Expectation"
I wrote a blog post last year after I played the U.S. Open qualifier at Lake Jovita, it was my first competitive round in over two years and the post was titled Why Playing Competitive Golf Makes Me A Better Coach. I firmly believe it as I've played a few more competitive rounds since then. I've always prided myself on being a coach from the players perspective looking at it from the players eyes what the player feels what the player sees and when you play in competition and you play in tournament golf it really helps you relate and remember that this game is not perfect, there are lots of challenges emotionally and mentally to play this game at a very high-level and compete with the worlds best. It reminds me when I compete what the best players are focused on and what they work their tails off to do.
As we play competitive golf keep in mind a couple of key thoughts and key goals when you play your next round. The best players in the world spend a lot of energy in getting themselves as relaxed as possible, actually better said in the zone that allows them to be creative to use their imaginations, trust their instincts and make good decisions in the heat of the moment.
Play the game...enjoy the walk!
