Marquette – May 26, 2012 – It was 7am Saturday morning, a perfect morning to play golf. And it was a very good round. Infact, I was ahead through most of the round.
Finally hole #9. I was still up a stroke. And my new X-partner, Bill Tibor, planted the seed of hitting a ball into the water as I walked to the 9th tee.
You see, golf is a mental game. Sure it involves swinging, and twisting, and walking, and angles and distance judging. But once you’ve been down the fairway 100 times, 90% of what matters is what’s in the mind.
So for my new X-partner to viciously plant the seed that I was to hit water worked quite well. In fact 2 in the water and 4 more strokes for a ugly finish.
Naturally he hit a monster drive over the water and a 7 iron within a foot of the pin. Ok Bill you win. And after that little nasty seed you planted, we’ll just see what happens next time!
Ohh that’s right, there won’t be a next time. (hee he he)
