  1. If you don’t strive to be the best you CAN ,you’ll never improve. “I should ” is all right as long as you accept the outcome as it is .You have to be a “fatalist “.I tried ,it didn’t just happen as I wished ,so be it !
    Is that the right attitude?

    • Hi Raymond,

      For many the “should” creates tension and expectation that cause poor play.

      Striving to be your best is fine…again, for some “should” is an improvement stopper and for others it’s a motivator to do better. All depends on one simple thing: is it getting you what you want or not?

      In the end–that’s all that matters.

      It’s not a matter of “is this right or wrong? It’s a matter of “Is this working for me or not?” Your honest answer to THAT question tells you all you need to know.

      You should be trying to be the best you can be. Make it simple and follow my instruction. If you do you will get there.

      • And to add to Paul’s comment–yes–follow his instruction and simplicity is the key and the foundation od of both approaches by Paul and myself.
        Simplicity rules the day!

          Thanks. I appreciate it. I figured this out a long time ago. Just logic. Once you understand it you will hit fairway woods great.

  2. Paul ,
    Sometimes ,I tend to be “overcomplicated “.then I fail .thinking to nothing at all ,but trying be smooth and relaxed is what works the best for me !

    BEN HOGAN said That hé MADE at best 3/4 perfect shots per round .So when I acheive the same ( According to m’y own standard OF excellence which is miles lower than BEN HOGAN’s ) I’m fully satified .
    I would rate m’y game on a given day more on the ” Bad ” shots I MADE ,And what to do to avoid them .
    After each round OF golf I play ,I jot down the following’
    What DID I do WELL ?
    What could I have done better ?
    How ?
    I took this from PIA NILSSON ,SORENSTAM’s one Time mental coach .
    It does work for me ,too!
    Working relentlessly at home on m’y short game is the area where I have progressed the most .holing chips ,putting short pitches close to the pin ,keeping m’y average putting score WELL below 30 .
    Alas ,m’y long game ,though very Consitent ,is far too short ,And keeps me from acheiving really low scores .
    Getting on a Green in régulation ( except PAR 3’s ) is very difficult for me except on short holes.
    WELL ,i live with it anyways .
    In the past years ,despite aging ( I’m over 81 ) I have stretched both drives And FAIRWAY Woods by an average 15 yards .
