Your faced with a golf shot 18th hole
A Par will tie, a birdie will win, a bogey (game over)
You have 150 yards in,
What do you think about, wind, lie etc
what do you go through before you knock it to 3 foot hole the putt and lift the cup!
The only thing to think about when taking any length putt is the ball, you can sort out the strength and direction first, but with the actual hit think BALL and keep looking at the spot way after the ball has gone. I think it was Arnie Palmer who said "don't lift your head until you hear the ball rattle in the cup".
What I think about is:
"Pfft. This shot is gonna FAIL. I'll just hit it as hard as I can."
Its kinda difficult at first. I onloy play once but it was ok, I liked it. I like it cause its peacefull and outdoor sport with nature contact.
Gold is something that i haven't got hold of yet. Only know that there is something called a birdy when you are somewhat near to the hole. I don't like watching it and hate it when a sports channel is being occupied by gold.
