Do You Have The Guts To Work On Your Golf Game?

Phoenix / Scottsdale Golf Lessons Update: Monday, November 23 2009

You may have put in hard work in your education, your body, your profession, and yourself [mind, body, spirit]. But do you put in the hard work ethic as you have done in other areas? You may have many reasons why you do, or do not work hard on your golf game.

Reasons why you may not work hard on your golf:

1. “Too busy”
2. “Not enough time in the day”
3. “Work too many hours”
4. “Family”
5. “Golf takes too much time to to play 18 holes”
6. “No reason to, I still suck”
7. “Too frustrating”
8. “The more I try, the worse I get…”
9. “I don’t know what to practice”
10. “I would rather play, F the range”
11. “I bought a training aid from the TV infomercial, but I am too embarrassed to try it at the range”
12. Female Golfer: “Too many guys come up to me to try to help me, even though I did not ask for their help”
13. “I will practice tomorrow, not today, I am too tired.”
14. “It gets dark too early”
15. “It’s too hot”
16. “It’s too cold”
17. “Too expensive”
18. “I hate hitting off mats”
19. “The range balls are terrible”
20. “I am too embarassed”
21. “I don’t want to like like an ass”
22. “I really won’t do those golf drills, I saw on YouTube, Golf Channel, and PGA dot com.”
23. “I am thinking about quitting”
24. “I quit, so been there done that”
25. “The golf pro I paid $crewed me up”
26. “Waste of money”
27. “It gets dark early”
28. “I am not good enough to take this seriously, but I do wish I could play better”
29. “If I did not have a job, I would work on my game everyday”
30. “If I win the lotto, I will buy the range and practice 8 hours a day like a job”
31. “My wife hates golf”

If I missed any, please add to the above list. If you really want it bad enough, you will find the time to work very hard on your golf game. I am sure there is a driving range near you that has lights and is open 7 days per week. Some driving ranges offer a discount on range balls if you buy in bulk. I know that Fiddlesticks in Tempe offers a range pass: $75 [month] for all the range balls you can shoot. At Rio Salado Golf Course, which is also in Tempe, offers a large basket of balls for $5.00 after 5:00 [p.m].

If you are thinking about quitting golf, call me or email me. I would like to help prevent you from leaving the best sport in the world.

Happy golfing,
