Description

Although there isn't a magical formula that makes a great golfer, there are circumstances that make it possible for a great golfer to come into being.

What Does It Take to be a Great Golfer?

We All Want to Be Great • Every golfer has the dream of being a really phenomenal golfer. • Unfortunately, we can’t all be like Tiger Woods.

Becoming a Legend • So what do Phil Mickelson, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods all have in common? • Find out what the ideal circumstances are for creating a golfing legend.

1. Constant Practice • A professional golfer spends their entire work day on the golf course. • That means constant study and practice. • Physical and mental training keep the golfer’s mind sharp.

2. Proper Training • The actual kind of training that a golfer receives is also important. • Video analysis tools are part of training technique. • Driving, putting, and cutting are all techniques that need to be learned properly.

3. A Good Teacher • The best golfers are taught by former pro golfers. • Experience from a professional career can help with training. • Motivation is also as necessary as training, so a good golf teacher will motivate their student. • Good teachers can be found at schools like the Jim McLean Golf School.

4. A Challenging Course • Challenging courses will test a golfer’s abilities. • Some pro golfers grow up near a golf course, on a golf property or in a golf community. • Golf communities often have the bonus of a golf school.

5. The Right Gear • Without proper equipment, it can be difficult to play golf properly. • Technique can be ruined by golf irons that are the wrong size.

6. A Supportive Team • Family and friends need to be there to support the golfer. • Golf is a psychological battle and friends and family can provide psychological support.

7. Just Plain Talent • Is it skill or talent? • Natural aptitude is necessary for true greatness. • But without the other things, talent can only take you so far.

Get Started on Becoming a Legend • Find a place to live that has golfing amenities. • Train, train and train some more! • Find out if the pro golf life is for you.
