I read somewhere that what makes a professional golfer better than the rest of the golfers out there is concentration. Somewhere in the depths of our brains we need to find that iron curtain and block out the rest of the world when we decide to tee it up in a match that means something. I recently found out that my curtain is in need of serious repair!
But I also found out that if you're not carrying around confidence in your golf bag it's like playing without your "go to" club.
Beating the Course....

I have yet to break par on my home course for 18-holes, and that goal is once again on my list as I start the 2009 season. I wasn't really expecting to have a low round this early in the season, so the idea of breaking par on Monday sort of took me by surprise.
I was playing with one of my favorite golf buddies and every round we play is a competition. I sort of go into match play mode and often forget about how I'm even scoring. The rule of thumb for me is that I need a lead at the turn to have a chance - the back is my worst side, and for most guys I play with the back is their easier nine.
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
