Golf is a sport that is filled with information, concepts, approaches, teachers, teaching styles and so on. There are a number of teaching aids, books and many videos, theories and opinions about everything from mastering your mind to how to hit a golf ball.
When I ask clients who they believe their best teacher is, the most common response I hear include their current swing coach, mental game guru, trusted coaches, friends or parents.

Your ultimate best teacher is: The Game of Golf
Why is this so?
Your parents, coaches and teaching professionals are surely interested in your success but your best and most consistent teacher is the game itself.

Here are some of the ways the game does this. It will reveal:
Your reactions to adversity
Your perfectionism and how it affects the way you play
Your emotional states and how they affect your game
Your tension levels
Your reactions to other golfers
Your reactions to conditions
How you are triggered to experience doubt or fear
How swing mechanics are affected by anger, frustration or pressure
Negativity in certain situations and/or with certain people
Ways you might sabotage yourself
The stories you tell yourself
Whats working for you and whats not (on all levels, mentally, physically and emotionally)
The game itself is the ultimate best teacher because the lessons are invaluable to your growth and development. In fact, you dont even have to request them. They are offered to you on a silver platter. The important question is:
The answer to this is question can lead you to your goals.
To Your Best Golf!
