Zen Golf Quote of the Week
Zen Golf Quote of the Week 9-24-15
When we use the word transition with regard to the golf swing, most people think of the transition from backswing to downswing. However, for the mental game the key transition is in regard to the passage into the time of “between shots.” Making this transition properly means letting go of the past, but not jumping ahead to the future. As the saying goes, “The past is history, the future’s a mystery. Being alive in this moment is a gift – that’s why they call it the present.”
Whether it’s between shots, between holes or between rounds, don’t forget to smell the flowers along the way. This is the most important transition, because it is only in the present that we can connect with our nature of basic goodness and simply appreciate being alive.
