Like everyone, I’ve had more than my share of tough rounds. But no matter how rough it’s going, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a day of golf.
-Don’t ride, walk! You’ll enjoy overall better health from the exercise and walking helps to release stresses of the day.
-Play with someone new- There’s nothing like making a new, good friend and no better way to bond with someone than sharing a round of 18 holes. If that’s not your style, enjoy the round by yourself! Everyone needs some me time, too. Allow golf to be a tool to relax your mind.
-Compliment yourself (out loud) on a good shot- Often we belittle ourselves after a bad shot, but rarely praise ourselves for the good shots. Whether you hit a line-drive in the fairway or make a three foot putt, give yourself a word of encouragement or maybe a fist pump. You deserve it.
-Look around! A day of golf is a day with nature. Most of us spend most of our days indoors. Take advantage of being out in the fresh air. Take a deep breath! No matter how you’re playing its important to enjoy the scenery and (hopefully) perfect weather.
