Stand 1" closer to the ball!

Okay, that's golf advice.  Years ago when I was golfing 4 or 5 times a week and practicing almost daily, my best friend would pick out a player on the driving range who was swinging badly and give him that advice.  Inevitably, the golfer's next few swings would be greatly improved and the golfer would give my friend a heartfelt THANK YOU!

After several times witnessing this lesson, I asked my buddy why so many golfers were standing 1" too far away from the ball and how  he was able to notice it.  He said "They were in the perfect position all the time.  They just needed to refocus and concentrate on their swings."

That was over 20 years ago but I still remember to this day, that when things aren't going quite right, I need to stand 1" closer to the ball.  I re-focussed this morning and am having a great day.  I hope you all are having great days too!


  1. That's so true. Sometimes we get "stuck" and we just need to make a minor adjustment in our lives. Your friend was very wise.

  2. enjoy the 'golf game'!!be it trying to get a ball in a small hole or trying to solve a huge problem at home!..just re-adjust and things should work out in the end!
