     If you're a golf fanatic like I am, you're always receiving a mountain of golf literature and marketing pieces in your mailbox.  Beautiful, glossy pictures of warm destinations and the hottest new equipment arrive almost daily.  Many times  golf tips are included within this marketing literature, the promise being that if I read and follow them faithfully, I will improve my game so vastly that the next time you hear from me, I'll be on the pro tour.                                                      Golf ball

  I've learned some valuable things while reading these free tips and in a few areas have even improved my game, as promised.  But it occurred to me while pouring over the latest free guide received, that many of the lessons found within it pertained to life in general, not just golf.  A word changed here or there and they fit perfectly.  Below are a few of the "tips" I recently received courtesy of GolfDigest. 

See if you don't agree that avoiding these mistakes on the golf course, as well as in daily life, could improve both greatly.   Enjoy! 

  • Misplaced Priorities ... Most amateurs try for maximum distance, every shot, every club, every time.  Set realistic priorities for every hole .. then figure out the easiest possible way to achieve them.     
  • Not Practicing the Short Game ... 3 things about the game:  It's boring to practice.  It's one area where pros have no built-in advantages of skill or strength.  It accounts for about 65% of your score!
  • Not Reading the Green Before You Get There ... Don't wait until you're actually on the green to read a putt. Instead, start as you walk towards it ... giving your brain time and perspective to take in all the shapes, slopes and influences that will affect your roll.
  • Not Trusting Your Swing & Playing With Confidence ... This can be tough, especially when the swing that served you well a few minutes ago decides to go off to play some other game.  The more consistently you use these steps to creating a pro-like approach to your game, the more you'll find trust and confidence overcoming fear and doubt.
