Fierce and friendly — this is yin and yang of golf.
Yin and Yang – In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describes how opposite or contrary forces are complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
In golf, we build friendships, have laughs and fun — but there is a fierce competitor within us that wants to be better … that wants to WIN! As a player and a teacher, I totally get this. We want to be focused and lock in when we play, we’re supposed to be social and just have fun. How do we do both? How are we supposed to be happy to be there — be happy go lucky and hold the trophy at the end?
It seems like being fierce and focused is contrary to being friendly and easygoing but really, they’re interrelated. Smiling relaxes us, and when we’re are relaxed, we move easier. Golfers need to move forcefully and quickly for great golf, so a smile primes us for a vicious strike. Meanwhile, we often think we have to look like we’re grinding, so our muscles lock up and we can’t move.
So, I need to get you smiling and swinging for those strikes you really like. But that’s only half the battle! To become an elite golfer, you have to able to trust and repeat your swing. In order to do that, you have to know how to break down movements and isolate small parts of the swing to master them. This is precisely the mentality of Fighting Golf.
The Fighting Golf products show you ways to move and practice that will improve your technique, so you can go small to go big, go slow to go fast, and practice the parts for the whole.
Learn to be fierce and friendly in golf — and in life — to achieve what you want!
Wishing you Flow with Force and Fly!
