Which One?
« on: June 13, 2012, 10:20:21 AM »
Which is it?

A. When you play your best golf, it's fun.
B. When you're having fun, you play your best golf.

Raymond Floyd won 4 majors, almost across 4 decades. He was consistent! He says the answer is "A". He says golf is a frustrating, infuriating game, and it's only really fun when you play well.

On the other hand...

Jim Flick was Jack Nicklaus' golf coach. He says the answer is "B". He teaches that when you're relaxed, not thinking about 1,000 things, you play better golf.

Maybe the answer would come somewhere in-between, but most say it's weighted heavily towards "A". And almost all experts would swear that the only TRUE remedy is not give a "&$%@" about your score or how many balls you lose.

Pendapat anda bagaimana?  ;)

Buat mase skrg..ayam2 mcm kita ni prefer situasi A, lagi best kalau sape kaki betting.

But sy just kurang faham maksud 'having fun' di sini. Banyak definasi utk 'having fun'. Tp kalau 1st2 tee-off pergi OB/hilang...conform x having fun. Nak dpt having fun 2 bergantung pada flight mates dan speed flight di hadapan dan belakang, terpulang pada nasib.

Maybe certain pro yg selalu FIR,GIR, 2 putt boleh kategori dlm situasi B. Seronok kalau flightmates yg sama pro challenge a good game with each other.

Paling penting, FOKUS!!

Hmmmm... For me i would prefer situation A.
Because why.. Everytime i play, i will focus myself to have a good shot.
How fun it is being in a flight but with a bad stroke, i will be ended up going home dissapointing myself.
 the first thing ill make sure is to have a good game then its time to have fun.

For me.. Having fun indeed will make you relaxed but sometimes it might distract because your focus will be different. So focus to have a good game then golf will be fun:)

for me..B coz when playing under stress free condition and a good flightmates, I can play a good round of golf.

It's a psychology game where you play your own games. Have fun while you playing it.

Personally, golf sebenarnya game against diri sendiri, x melibatkan other flightmates. Kdg2 kita secara x sengaja bertindak seperti mengikut rentak kawan yang drive mantap, iron-short on green, smpi2 terikut gaya mereka...then, otak kita fikir "aku nak shot mantap mcm dia, lawan dia balik", pas2 kita sendiri x fokus on our swing and capibility, main belasah pukul je, gaya je lebih.

My suggestion, bile time our turn, set mind yg kita sbnrnya main sorang2 je, fokus sepenuhnye swing yang kita expect nak lakukan. Then, after dah habis pukul...then kite leh enjoy tgk shot flightmate kita yg lain.

Nampak senang..tp nak adapt sgt2 susah. Mcm2 gangguan. Better go for situation A. Spt kita score 3 gol hatrik time main bola, semua shoot lawa2 mcm Ronaldo/Messi..baru seronok/enjoy n kembang hidung.

Aku rasa B. sbb aku prasaan kalau aku come relax, tak rushing, xpk Kerja, xpk balik kene buat apa lak, xpk Brg anak nak beli, aku main better. It's not fun when u play golf but u have to think bout work. Tp apa bole buat, Kerja must come 1st. Kerja bg duit utk main golf.

Kalau that day it feels fun for golf, usually good game. in the end, more fun than u start with.
baru aku tau camtu rupanya cara nak pukul bola...

Soalan ni sama la mcm is it good to overswing. John daly and bubba kata bgus. Kalau butch, Sean or hank kata xbgus.

Is it good to raise you front feet at the top of the swing? Same answer.
