Are you planning for Golf as Profession?

Wanting to be a professional golf player is a great decision you have made. Golf is one of the most scientifically designed games I have ever seen. I am not saying because I am a professional golf coach. I have seen many of my trainees maturing to join professional golf clubs. They have decent earnings, satisfaction, and the eagerness to grow into international golf players. How do you think they are able to do it? Let’s take a look.

Is Golf Boring?

Many of my friends have a strong feeling that golf is boring. They may say so because they have never got involved in the game. They have been watching golf from a distance. They also don’t have any idea about the intricacies of playing. Hence, they may feel that golf is boring.

How to overcome the Phobia

Willingness to experiment with golf is the first step towards overcoming the phobia. I would rather day, you have to take a golf club and get onto the field. Of course, you will need the golf ball also! Join a team of amateurs or people who are playing without knowing why. Interactions with them can decrease the phobia and eliminate it at some point of time.

How to Learn Golf

You will need a professional golf trainer like me (experienced professional) to start training on the game. You need to spare a minimum of six months to one year for the basic preparation. Then you can start practicing in groups under the guidance of professional golfer.

You will also need to watch videos of local golf club players. I have seen many of my students committing the mistake of watching international golfers while being in the initial stages of golf training. Such an approach is not only a waste of time, but can also have negative impacts in the future.

Go to the local golf club matches and watch intensely. Every weekend you can follow a specific player from the start to the finish. You have to watch not only his correct shots but also his mistakes. Sometimes a mistake in one aspect of the shot making can be a plus point for the other types of shots.

You should also read a lot about the golf sport. Go online to get free books and magazines on golf.

Body Postures

The golf sport has many important body postures which you have to follow. You have to be highly accurate and consistent in following the postures. They can vary for every type of shot that you choose. They can also change depending on the landscape on which you are playing.

Focus

You should focus on the ball and the path it is going to fly. You can’t work on assumptions. So, you have to learn the theory aspects very clearly. Start practicing by increasing the level of concentration and focus. One way of enhancing focus is to do meditation before training. Try it for a few days and you can experience the results.

Conclusion

Professional golf is fun and highly paid. But you need to start with a focus on playing and improving. Only then you can reach the stage of professional players faster.

Golf for Fun and Entertainment

The best way to start practicing golf is for fun and entertainment. Only then you can explore the depths of the gaming techniques and rules without any anxiety and fear. You will not hesitate to make mistakes and learn from them. You will be eager to make new experiments with gaming techniques and find new and innovative methods. You will enjoy the game so much that your involvement will be 100%. Start with your experiment today and experience the results.

Where is the Action

Many of the youngsters may find golf to be boring because they don’t find any “action” in it. It is unlike rugby, American football, soccer, and even Tennis. The adrenaline doesn’t seem to rush at any point of time for the beginners.

They wonder how professional players find inspiration while playing on calm and cool weather conditions with only a few spectators around.  Even the response from the fans seems to be dry and dull because there are only hand claps. It could be because the spectators are too gentle for playing the drums and dancing in the Golf fields!

How to get Motivation

I suggest that you focus only on your aim of getting points and progressing. Diverting your focus on anything other than your sport could mean you lose. It is not only losing, but also reaching a point of frustration. It is not easy to return from that point to become an active player once again.

Play in Groups

You have to join a training team and start practicing in groups. Motivational factors can come from your team members when your spirit is down. Similarly, you can motivate others while they are down. It has been one of the greatest mantras of making champions out of every ordinary human, including you and me.

 Don’t Give Up

Sometimes you may feel like throwing the golf club and walking away from the field. It could be because the things are moving faster or the pace is not matching with your urgency. So, the first thing you have to learn is patience. The second thing is persistence.

When I heard of patience, I wanted to have it immediately! My idea was to get the wealth of patience right from the next moment. However, it did not happen. Then somebody told me that I have to have the patience to get patience! That was something I just could not comprehend at that time.

I could realize its importance when I started coaching youngsters in golf sporting. Most of the youngsters of today seem to have learned patience better than I did. They are also more persistent in their approach to the sport.

Conclusion

I have been working on training the youngsters who can’t even afford to buy the cheapest golf sets. I see a lot of enthusiasm among them about the sport. Many of them have already moved into the senior level of training. I hope they will go on to become professional golfers in the future.
