You’re not only competing against your competitors, but also the course, weather conditions and ultimately yourself. Great example is Rory McIlroy on the first hole in this past weekend’s Open Championship. He had everything going for him; Home Course advantage, fans on his side, takes an 8 on the first hole changing his entire game plan for his tournament. How many times has he played that hole in a variety of conditions? A lot. Each swing is its own, every shot has its factors, but there is one thing that should never change from round to round, having fun. The frustrations will be encountered, putts that won’t fall, wayward tee shots, run out chips, competition golf has its own challenges, but having fun while playing should never be a challenge.
