Golf tip of the week: Positive attitude can improve your golf game

PHOTO PROVIDED Relax and enjoy your round of golf. It’s just a game.

Many golfers get beat before they step on the first tee. Negative thoughts and a poor attitude create more harm to a golf swing than bad mechanics.

A golfer that feels happy and relaxed will outperform golfers with good swings and bad attitudes.

Everyone misses golf shots regardless of how low or high their handicap. The golfers that look for bad things in his or her swing can definitely find them.

On the other hand, golfers that look for good things and play with the right attitude, feel better about themselves and enjoy the game.

Take time to notice the beautiful scenery and feel happy about being with your friends.

Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.
