The purpose of this section is to investigate how the mind plays a role in golf. Often times is thought that golf is all about technique. Practice, practice, practice is the way to go because then your body can make a fluid swing and hit the ball where you want to. Well that is nice ... and part of golf is like that, but many people have told us that there is more to golf than how you swing the club.
Just like in life, golf requires a cool, calm, and collected person. When things are going well, the person must not get too excited about how well they are doing. When things are going poorly, that same person must be able to relax and concentrate only on the stroke being made and less about how poorly they are playing. This is a necessity to golf.
Still don't believe me? Well, whether you do or you don't, there is a very exciting story about two couples and two caddies as they make their way through 18 holes of golf. Some play well ... others play poorly, yet they are all playing the same game and must keep their head in the game.
Before you read this story, please keep this in the back of your mind: Bobby Jones once said, "Golf is a game played on a five-inch course -- between your ears." Enjoy!
