PostSubject: "Trying too hard"   Tue Aug 02, 2011 1:34 am

Just a couple of weeks ago, had a few special training sessions with a coach to level myself up to a somewhat 'playable level'.

During training at the Par-3 and during the final debriefing, my coach gave an honest opinion (which he later reiterated in his report) that I try too hard as a beginner. Whilst it is always good to have that competitive edge in Golf to push oneself harder to achieve results, the concentration on results, techniques and these alone without relaxing at all and having fun with the game, may eventually prove detrimental to one's development in golf.

He did mention that most Asian beginner students he'd coached, display this 'problem' when they start to learn golf.

How true is that?

trying too hard...

what to do.....during the early years already condition to give yor best which equates to 'try hard'...and if not...try harder...

even the botak hero aka Bruce Willis also epitomizes this in his show..die hard..then die harder....(did i remember it correctly ?? )

but more importantly...if we look at it...its not about trying has to do with unrealistic goals and resulting one in trying hard for the wrong goal.

now...this explains why I am playing this std of goal is to go past red tee..consistently...
