It’s late, my day has been really long and I have managed to play 6 rounds in 7 days. So tonight I’m just dropping off a picture of my sweet pup because it’s hard not to be happy when it comes to Danno.
Just wanted to stop by and share with you something that Dr. Bhrett McCabe shared with me last week.
What if you focused only on the good shots from your round?
Simple, but a game changer.
Sleep on that tonight and let’s talk more about it tomorrow 🙂
And I’m not talking about going to the range and putting in hours of work. Today on Monday rehab I’m sharing with you the little things that make a huge difference in how you feel heading into that early morning tee time.
One of the keys to freeing your mind up to play awesome golf is reducing as much stress as possible. I think a lot of people ignore how small issues can lead to a lot of stress the morning of your tournament. We’re talking a messy golf bag, golf balls not being marked, forgetting food or water, losing your favorite ball marker, digging through a closet for your favorite polo shirt you just have to wear, forgetting your golf shoes, your range finder battery going dead, not eating breakfast……..I could go on forever. These are the smallest problems that can happen during a tournament, but ones that add up to freaking out and ultimately running late or feeling rushed.
With some preparation though, you can eliminate these worries and wake up feeling confident that you are ready! I shared some of my day before activities today on my Insta Story, check it out!
Imagine if you made a list and checked off everything the day before your event? You could wake up refreshed, make a great breakfast and actually enjoy your drive to the golf course without a constant worry that you forgot something.
Much of this too is anticipating what could happen and being ready. Here are a few other keys for me:
As with life, as much as you prepare, something can always go haywire. But it’s important to remember that some good planning will always make things run smoother and dealing with one issue verses a 5 equals a lot less worry.
It’s Sunday night and I’m getting ready for bed with a full heart and the feeling of gratitude overwhelming me. The last five days I went from having a 2 hour lesson to playing 18 holes four days in a row. I sit here with no pain, no headaches, no feeling of complete dread. Not every shot I hit the past few days was what I envisioned, but there was so much good that happened and that is where I place my focus.
Goodnight for now…….S
The past few days has been all about getting ready for next week’s WSGA Mid Am. It is really difficult these days to put the work to a tourney that I would like, so instead I have to prepare smart.
Over the years my priority list has changed quite a bit. Right now, it looks like this….
Years ago this list operated in reverse, but these days it is way more important that my body and mind be in the right state.
I played the past 2 days and will be getting a few more rounds in this weekend. It’s all about committing to my swing and body, building trust and having fun too!
Hope you all make it out on a course this weekend!
I love the mini bands, they are my go to torture device when it comes to singling out the glutes and feeling the burn. But lately, I have become an even bigger fan of using them a completely different way.
Here is one of my favorite exercises for addressing ankle and hip stability, glute activation, thoracic rotation, disassociation, balance, and you’ll feel an awesome shoulder burn! On a separate note, when will Apple change their auto correct so that when I type in glute, it doesn’t change to flute?
A few keys to success:
This is a great add in to your warm up or movement preparation portion of a workout. It will engage your body in all the right places!
