PostSubject: What is your expectation in golf?   Tue Jan 29, 2013 9:46 am

I wonder whether this question has ever being asked " what is your expectation in golf " ?

Business, exercise, leisure, getting away from wife for 4 hours ... Etc

As for me, I am old but an young player. I have all the golf stuffs that I needed, got a coach, training n practice hard whenever i can, won some minor tournaments, won some trophies .. So? Still not satisfactory.

My expectation ? I wanted to push myself to a limit to find out and hope one today I am qualify to play with my Shi Xiong Slinger or Shamusan and many many other in GR. Do we really need talent to play this game ?

I have fairly low expectations now. When I was playing for a living my expectations were far different.

All about being able to get together with the guys or gals and hitting some shots. The competitive juices do get going once in a while when I am playing well (I shift back into more of a playing mode) as it is nice to post a good score every once and a while.

Part of the challenge for me is to not expect too much. I play about 1-2 times per month, practice even less and yet when I have a good round going I can get fired up if I miss a shot. Learning to deal with that better and playing with a few of my friends here in Singapore helps because they can now see it and help me move past it.... Beer

It's the process I go through to pay for beer and food with good friends. Can't expect much else given the amount of effort I put into the sport.

The goals for every game are to play to h'cap, to shoot lower than the last round, to shoot my best round ever, to not lose so much money to the many sharks here, to have fun with the guys, to grow a farmer's tan and even out my fluorescent tanning, to preserve my sanity after a long work week, to trick my body into believing it's getting some exercise......

My expectations when I play is to simply feel good!

Make clear decisions and commit to those decisions.
Manage my emotions.

Make swings that are balanced and free of tension that feel good.

At the end of the day the score might be better than the last one it might not be, i might make some money i might not, but those are things that are not in my control.

My expectations or purpose when I play is to simply think clearly and make swings that feel good because that will be my best chance playing my best.

2) Complete at least 12 holes

You may think so, bro

- no business no income .. Good business, may not able to handle.
- good student great, bad student vomit blood
- good coach, business will come
- poor coach, business will not come

This is a small golf committee, people talks .. Those good coaches will have student from overseas to come to see them.

Now, what all these have to do with this thread about what is your expectation in golf ? Hehehe Very Happy

Pretty low as I get out about once a month. Play a decent round....hang out with my buddies and enjoy a few beers.

Quite a different expectation than a few years ago.
