Dealing with golf stress

AdobeStock_69103052

There is no question that golf is a frustrating sport. In fact, studies have shown that many golfers do not actually enjoy golf, but rather it is a stress increase in their already stressful lives. Many people want to like golf, but do not know how to channel their stress and anger while playing, which is crucial to the enjoyment of the game.

As someone that has struggled with anger and stress for most of my adult life, I know that it can be difficult to separate stress from knowing that golf is supposed to be fun. Truly one of the games that one plays against themselves, there has to be a way to reach inner peace no matter how the game is going.

The importance of disconnect

As someone that has also perfected the art of the disconnect, I can tell you that it is a key component of becoming a better golfer. I have found that not dwelling on every shot, no matter how good or bad, that the game will just sort of come together.

Of course this is difficult to do at times, but it is essential in deciding which is more important, a game of golf, or your overall health. Most of the time this is an easy decision, and finding the right balance is the key to bringing the game and life together. In a sense, golf is more than a game, but in another sense, it is nothing more than a game. Enjoy it!
