SENIOR GOLF

The Mental Focus For A Senior Golfer

Senior golf is not only physical, but also it is a mental game. You have to have the ability to stay focused, concentrate on the game, and forget the distractions around you. This is very important when playing golf and as you get older, your mental ability to concentrate fully on the game could result in a few mistakes in the game. The game is said to e ninety percent mental focus and ten percent physical. If this is the case, then a senior golfer needs to concentrate on the game and leave the world behind.

Senior golf is for relaxing. Even thought you are playing to win, you need to relax and focus solely on your game. If you have a cell phone ringing or too many people around the tee box, you could lose your focus, miss that possible hole in one shot and come in above par. You want golf to be relaxing and enjoyable, but you also need to play to win. It is a matter on mind over matter when you golf. Not everyone can have this type of discipline. Some golfers work hard at focusing while others work at the physical aspects of the game. You need to keep your attention on both the physical and mental aspects of the game.

There was a senior golf pro named Ben Hogan who was very quiet and subdued on the green. This was his way of concentrating and playing the game. Many people thought he was rude or unsociable, but he may have been focused on his came and had the discipline to keep his mind on the game. You see many senior golf players on the golf courses laughing it up and having fun. These golfers play for the fun and excitement but do not care if they make it to the PGA.

Tommy Bolt was a loud player as he was verbal when he played and he had a bad habit of throwing his clubs. He lost many games because of his actions, but he may have had focus, but could not match that focus with his physical ability. It was often wondered how he managed to win some majors in his career. He must have had a reason for getting upset with himself. He knew he could do better, but some people just cannot concentrate with so much distraction around them. When all was said and done, he did come to grips with his anger and won in the senior golf with the PGA.

Senior golf is harder to start at an older age if you have not been doing it a while. You have to condition the body to do the physical side of golf and you need to train your mind to focus and refrain from noticing distractions going on around you. If you are serious about senior golf, you can learn a few tips from the pros on how to improve your game and how to stay focused when on the course.

All Mouth And No Trousers?

There is no shortage of satirical comment around on the dress sense of golfers, and to be honest it is hard to blame the people who make mention of it. Sometimes, golfers wear items of clothing that are simply appalling. The late, great Payne Stewart was famous for his plus-fours which garnered compliments and attention from many, along with hoots of derision from others. Most of us can summon up a stereotypical picture of what we would deem a golf outfit to be – and the likelihood is that the world’s golfers would not come out looking too wonderful.

When it comes down to it, there is a reason golf trousers tend not to look like the height of sartorial elegance, or of relaxed style. If a golfer took to the course wearing a full dress suit, their swing would be badly compromised. If they wore jeans on to the course, they would find it pretty difficult to get the flexibility required to hit the complex range of shots they need to – plus they would be breaking a club’s genteel dress code. Therefore it is important to find a compromise. Slacks are exactly the right compromise, and they are the chosen golf trousers of a great many players.

Plenty of amateur golfers, and for that matter a number of the professionals, like to have a bit of fun with the expected sartorial disasters that are a part of golfing folklore in this day and age. For some people, golf just wouldn’t be golf without a terrible shirt and garish trousers.

Getting Into The Swing Of Things

Watching golf on TV, it is often very easy to become complacent about what the sport requires of you. To the untrained eye, it is simply a matter of hitting the ball really hard once, slightly less hard another time or two, and then trying to get an accurate putt to round the hole off. What could be more simple? Actually, a lot of things. It may seem like those professionals just put the ball on the tee and smash it as hard as they can, but even the action replays the networks show cannot prepare you for the sheer physics of the best golf swing. It will take you a while to hone yours, be in no doubt about that.

Try It, You Might Like It

The most commonly held prejudice about golf is that it is a sport for the rich, that it goes along with sailing and horse riding as a sport that is ring-fenced off for players that were born with a silver spoon in their mouth.
