2012 is almost here! What will be your new year’s resolution?
With the Trim Golf attitude, You can shave strokes off your game in 2012.
Dropping strokes on your game is a lot like losing weight. It’s not always easy but if you can take off a little here and a little there you will eventually notice a difference over time.
My college golf coach, created a goal for us by coming up with a group called “The One Shot Club” it was our mission to be a part of it. The concept is, if each player could drop one stroke, as a team we would drop 5 strokes and that could be the difference between winning and losing. There are many different areas where you can drop this stroke. However, if you could drop one stroke in each area, you would maximize your improvement. What if you improved your putting by one stroke this year? What if you improved your mental game by one stroke, your fitness ability by one stroke, your short game by one stroke, What if you saved one less drive from flying out of bounds? Instead of trying to drastically improve one area of your game focus on how you can get just one stroke better.
This year, I want you to take a look at what you want in your game, set a goal and make it happen! Take out a piece of paper, write it down, and plan all the areas that you can trim one stroke. We know that you can do it!
