I just finished my FIRST round of golf this year! Shank & pull should have been my scorecard name! The last round I played was on Fatherâ€™s Day in 2008! (Michael Sove probably canâ€™t even believe this!)
So the game was going wrong (as maybe are cells). Life began to â€œteachâ€ me again. I recalled when Armin Gesswein told me of a golf book titled â€œThe Nine Worst Shots in Golfâ€ with the subtitle â€œand the one shot that fixes them allâ€. While I havenâ€™t found the book, the conversation left me with a continuing thought that I can either (1) keep applying all my energies on trying to repair â€œwhatâ€™s wrongâ€ with my game, or (2) FOCUS on the ONE SHOT that will overcome the errors altogether.
I looked up some advice from Dr. Jim Suttie, golf professional: here are 3 of 7 correction (I am trying to apply them to Cells):
â€¢ Lighten up your grip. (How can I apply this to fixing my cells? Lighten up! Donâ€™t get overly serious, relax some, quit squeezing the leaders so hard, let God have control)
â€¢ Get farther from the ball at address. (I am getting a message here; step back a bit, quit hovering and smothering the things could help you)
â€¢ Work on a little straighter back takeaway with no rolling of the right hand. (are your values steady? are you rolling away from the straight course you set?)
But, most importantly, see your PGA professional for some help. (Ahhâ€¦. Back to seeing a coach! let go of pride and get some help!)
I wonder what lessons life is teaching you. Care to share?
