Golf and Your Mental Game: Is Your Racing Mind in Its Overcomplicated State Ruining your Golf Game?

Is your mind racing to and fro when playing golf? You are playing a game and your mind should be on the game from moment to moment as if you focus on your game from moment to moment you are at your best in terms of concentration and focus. If your mind is judging each shot with a cascade of good and bads are you focusing on the good and bads instead of the game in the present moment? If your mind is judging your performance you are missing the game which you know is the next shot not the last shot! Are you so caught up you fail to notice the wind, the sun playing tricks on your vision and the humidity that is zapping your energy and slowing down your ball. It seems like there is a conspiracy in your mind to divert you from your game and the beautiful environment you are golfing in. Is your mind in the game here and now or is it trapped by what just happened on the last hole you were playing? Perhaps you should focus on the here and now instead of 5 minutes ago. My goodness will you destroy your game if you focus on the mist hovering over the 4th hole that is dancing with the sun. There is more to life than golf. Look and enjoy what is unfolding in front of you. Get out of your game to get into your game!
