Golf with Gillian Burrell PGA Fellow

 

Golf just voted most “boring game”

By Gillian Burrell PGA Fellow

A week ago, golf topped the list of 30 of the most boring games in sport. It’s hard to argue with perceptions but all sports have more to offer than the dissenting voices argue. The game of golf has irrevocably changed my life and it does so for lots of people for a whole host of reasons.

Perhaps the problem is that golfers rarely look at “what lies beneath” the surface of the game and tend to reduce it to a good score or a more likely a not so good score!  As we know too well, golfers are lucky to score well less than a handful of times throughout the year. If this is the case, what makes the game so compelling?

We can talk about “a game for life”, the health benefits we accrue, the relationships we build with our fellow golfers but I think it’s even more fundamental than that, it’s the life challenges golf presents on a daily basis in the course of the game.

 

Never boring, always challenging.

 

Whether it’s controlling our emotions when we hit a bad shot, our ability to make logical decisions when it comes to shot making, responding to pressure, resilience or “bounce back” as we call in in golf, these are the challenges that make golf interesting, addictive and sometimes all consuming.

Over the next couple of months, I will be writing about each of these challenges and how we can overcome them and transform not just your game but also how you could use these tools in other areas of your life.

In the meantime, if you come across a sceptic, please highlight the reasons why golf is never boring but always challenging. We all need to persuade these disbelievers for the sake of the longevity of the game.

 

Gillian is Director of Coaching at P2LG and operates her private coaching practice at The Carr Golf Centre at Spawell and Elmgreen Golf Centre.
