Golf is a sport that youth can begin playing at a very young age and enjoy as a casual and/or competitive activity for the rest of their lives. While having fun playing this lifetime sport, young people learn valuable life lessons in sportsmanship, honesty, patience and integrity and use these attributes in a variety of situations they encounter throughout life. Golf also encourages juniors to set goals and develop communication skills with other players. Overall, junior golf helps shape the lives of junior players on and off the golf course and the lessons learned carry on throughout a lifetime whether they continue to play the sport or not. Lifetime sports as defined by Carol Sarao in her article entitled “What is a Lifetime Sport?” are "physical activities that people can enjoy throughout their lives .
Learning Golf was struggling and hard at first but then it got better over the years by going out and playing a lot. One problem that happened was when I wasn’t doing so good every time I would go out and play. Every shot I would hit it would be a bad shot or the ball would be in the water or the sand or even in people’s backyards. I fixed my problem by having lessons with someone to help me get better and not put the ball in the water or sand. Ever since I had lessons with someone, I have been doing great and getting even better and shooting lower scores.
The pro said, “For fourth place the Zach and Jacob. For third place Matt and Josh, for 2nd place with a tie Noah Nash, and Bobby and Robert, and Finally for first the winner is Luke and Tyler.” My cousin and I were one stroke from getting first. We were not really happy about it, but we had a great time. One thing I feel like I learned is that you gotta have more preparation for a golf tournament, because it takes a lot of
That little decision of my father to take me to the driving range changed my whole view of my future. Ever since that day, I have aspired and worked hard to try and achieve my dream of becoming a professional golfer. That day began with my father taking me to the Weston hills country club driving range. This was the first time I've ever played golf and I was pretty good. The way it felt to hit a good shot shook
Golf gadgets to help you play better and enjoy the game more. Golfers love gadgets. From kludgey gizmos that promise to fix your hook (or slice) off the tee, or your chipping, or your putting, to devices that help you practice more efficiently or learn more from your practice/playing time, there are plenty of clever devices out there that just might be your ticket to a lower handicap. Remember that scene in Tin Cup when Dr. Molly Griswold (Rene Russo) shows up at the driving range owned by Roy “Tin Cup” McAvoy (Kevin Costner) for her first golf lesson with a bag full of goofy golf training aids? (“I ordered all this from The Golf Channel.”) Well, it isn’t like that anymore (well, not necessarily…), and the modern-day golf gadgeteer is more
Graduation project so far has not been too terribly bad. I have realized that I need to manage my time better but I am able to get away with procrastinating because I only have one class at Laney, my other class is at Cape Fear twice a week. So far I have selected a topic, took notes from sources, created an outline, conducted an interview and typed my research paper. I decided to do my senior project on the benefits of youth golf. I decided to do this because I enjoy playing golf and am on the golf team.
Very often you are having and off day and you are doubting your ability yet you have played many times before. I am also hardworking, no matter what I do, it is not good enough. We live in a time where you have to compete to become a professional golfer and in the words of Ed Macauley “ you always have to give one hundred percent, because if you don 't someone someplace, will give one hundred percent and will beat you when you meet”. The physical ability of players has improved tremendously and you do have to give one hundred percent to just make it you have to give it one hundred and ten percent to be the best. I know there are many qualities I like and will help me succeed I know there are some that will try to hold me
Getting started in college again is a bit difficult. Nonetheless, this week 1 introduction assignment has been easy to follow and eye opening. Everyone need to practice gun safety in order to have a safe/fun time when shooting at the range. To put it differently, gun safety can be something I have become somewhat complacent. When gun owners attend the range often, they become complacent in fundamental safety.
Kalieb reflects on what it takes for the game to run smoothly ‘‘It doesn 't matter if you can hit the ball far, just how you get the ball in the hole with the fewest hits.” As many of the players learn there are a lot of fundamentals to the game. Zane Wentzell has been playing golf for nine years, as a sophomore this is his first year playing on a team. Zane says “I think it’s great that when you go out there and play you get to experience what people usually toss aside as ‘you know it 's not a sport and you really get to see first hand that it 's a mental game and it does require a lot of skill more so than people give it credit for.’’ The variety of people is really interesting to Zane, and to him he feels he is able to
I always played recreational soccer. During the basketball tryouts, I worked hard and tried my best, but there were many girls that were better than me. I didn’t make the team and even though I knew I wouldn’t make the team, I still got upset about it. When the coach told me that I didn’t make the team, he told me to keep basketball a part of my life and that I had a positive attitude. To keep basketball a part of my life, I went to some of the games during the season and to this day I still make time to go to the modified games.
Understanding the mental game of golf is crucial to being competitive. If you 're serious about competing in the game of golf, you need to understand, that without a good mental game, you have no game. Regardless of the physical ability you may possess, if your mental game isn 't up to par, you are going to have a hard time competing at high levels in this sport. Focus and mental stamina and know-how are key components in any winner 's arsenal. Some of the best golfers ever have argued that the mental game is the most important.
Even though Lee had a “baseball-like swing”, but that didn’t stop him from getting a golf equipment named after him, and winning all these awards. Lee was also in the Marines for, four years and he loved it. He would play at golf matches when he was there, but his love for golf was so strong he wanted to go on and pursue his love for it. At the 1975 Western Open he got stuck by lighting but was still practicing golf in the hospital! I think it is amazing that even though he has been through so much he has fought through it because he didn’t want to give up golf.
