I remember the first time I went to play golf and it was really like a comedy of errors. It's like watching a comedian flop on the golf course - whether it was swinging my drive or trying to sink a putt. It was like watching an epileptic having a seizure with a golf club; it's both scary and amusing to people at the same time.
Getting your golf drive swing down cold is one of the hardest parts of golf. This is quite funny because when people watch golf, they’re under the arrogant assumption that people are just holding a stick and swinging it against a small ball and that’s all there is to the game. They miss out on the fact that the 99% of the results you get with golf actually revolves on your drive swing.
Do not fear
Don’t beat yourself up unnecessarily if your golf swing is wobbly. This happens to the very best of us. It doesn’t matter whether a person’s been playing golf for many years or they just picked up a club recently. Their swing is going to be wobbly and that’s perfectly acceptable; there’s no shame in that. Don’t think that you’re an absolute and total loser because your drive swing is off the mark.
Let me tell you, even expert golf pros still have some room for improvement; otherwise, if they have a perfect swing, they would be winning pro tournaments every day. Obviously, that’s not happening. In fact, if you watch the leader board of typical golf championships, it is actually quite random. There is no predictable winner.
We’re long past the age of Tiger Woods where it seems that he would win every major competition. The game has changed and it just highlights the fact that there are many elements to golf that really can’t be mastered. So if you think that you’re continuing to struggle with your swing, don’t feel too bad; you are hardly alone. This happens to the most.
