One of the most important and best golf lessons is not about how to putt the ball or swing the club.
One of the most significant and best golf lessons is how to manage your game and control your temper.
Managing your game and controlling your game go “hand-in-glove,” so to speak. They will allow you to hit your best golf shots.
Usually losing your temper or, failing to control your temper, is what leads to poor management decisions in a round of golf.
On the other hand, when you are able to control your temper, even in dire circumstances, you can continue to manage your game calmly and make good decisions in your play.
I recently read an article about angry golf. Here is a portion of the article.
“Golf is a reflection of the ego. One has expectations. And when these expectations are not satisfactorily realized, one takes, shall we say, ego-reinforcing compensatory actions to rationalize the shortfall. Often, these explanations are manifest by the simple means of an expletive, softly muttered, after witnessing the pitiful results of a truly ugly swing.” Read more…blog.timesunion.com/golf/angry-golf/4498/.
What causes most golfers to lose control of their temper is the unreliability of their golf swing.
Golfers who subscribe to conventional golf swing instruction in which they are taught to manipulate the club in some way during their swing in an attempt to square the face of their club to the ball at impact are somewhat doomed to fail at times.
The problem with conventional golf swing instruction is that it requires a golfer to instinctively determine the alignment and path of the club face at final address and from such alignment and path of the club face, attempt to manipulate the club in some weird way during the golf swing to convert the established club face alignment and path to a square alignment and an on line path at impact with the ball.
Most weekend and recreational golfers are unable to perform this overwhelming task.
They become frustrated because they are unable to hit consistent and reliable golf shots by trying to manipulate the club in some way to square its face to the ball at impact and lose control of their temper and the ability to manage their game in the process.
The Locked-In Golf™ System takes the guesswork out of how to manipulate the club during the golf swing to square the club face to the ball at impact.
The Locked-In Golf™ System locks-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the club face during the setup proceedings and they remain locked-in during the remainder of the setup routine and golf swing as long as the instructions are followed.
More information about the Locked-In Golf™ System can be found at http://lockedingolf.com or gordonjacksongolf.com.
Once you experience locking-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the club face during the setup proceedings there will be no need to manipulate the club during the golf swing to square the club face to the ball at impact because it is locked-in to “square” at the beginning of the swing.
You then can manage your game and temper and begin to hit your golf ball straight as an arrow, one shot after another.
