Any golfer will tell you that the harder you swing the club, the worse the result. Not always, but often enough.
And yet we continue to swing hard, because it just seems to make sense. We want the ball to go farther, so we try to hit it harder.
It seems to work out just often enough to keep us trying.
Then I watched this TED Talk, which has nothing to do with golf, and yet it explains perfectly why golfers should not swing hard.
Today I took this advice and shot a 46.
My best round ever.
Probably. And it’s November. I’m sure I’ll forget this lesson by spring.
