Golf and Your Mental Game: The Destructive Power of Improvement

After working as a golf Marshall I finally accepted a chunk of reality after playing 45 games. I am stuck in a range of 80-95 for 18 holes. In and out. Up and down. I am prisoner of a range and after 50 years of golf the time has come to accept that reality. The first game of the season could be the best and after 44 games the last game could be the worst. Accept that reality and the incessant desire to improve may fade and instead of a tirade of self criticism as your game is not improving you might find yourself enjoying the golf moment you are in and enjoying and laughing at the bad shots. In fact take it a step further you are on the golf course so is there really a bad shot! With age and experience comes wisdom if you embrace acceptance?
