How to Become a Real Golf Bandit
It all started when he lost three games in succession and feltreally hurt by the experience. It wasn't just that he'd lost, itwas the fact that, when he was honest with himself, he had to admitthat he'd played poorly and never been in the hunt.
That was when he made up his mind to become an Invincible Golfer;a consistent winner; a really tough, hard to beat competitor. This is the story of how he turned himself from a miserable loser into a golfer who now wins over 80 percent of his games.
How it all began
It all started when h took a week off work to do a few choresaround the house and play a bit of golf. He lost all of the threegolf games he played that week, and it hurt.
Later, sitting in his car in the car park, he swore that he wouldnever again allow himself to be beaten like that. And this is howhe became an almost invincible golfer.
His Master Plan for Winning
The objective was simple: "to develop a game which would make hisopponents call him a Bandit".
You need to bear in mind that he had a full time job, so this was the 9-point plan which he developed to fit in around his work:
1. develop a swing upon which you can rely, even when underpressure.
2. Develop complete confidence in yourself and your game - need tobe tough-minded and totally focused when you play golf.
3. Research and purchase golf equipment which will give you anedge in terms of distance and accuracy.
4. Learn all known golf bets so that you can bet to your advantageand apply psychological pressure on your opponents at opportunemoments.
5. Dress so that you are always comfortable and look neat and tidy, but never flashy, on the course.
6. Organize your finances so that you never have to worry aboutmoney and can focus totally on your game.
7. Take vacations that will give you opportunities to play plentyof golf and enhance your game.
8. Source any natural dietary supplements which will help tokeep you fit and healthy and keep your body in good shape to playgolf.
9. Develop a home fitness regime that will ensure that you havethe stamina to play 36 holes a day, without tiring.
This is how he implemented his plan with such success that when hereturned to that golf club six months later he beat all of thegolfers who had made him unhappy the previous May.
"You really make that driver sing"
He'd been working on his Master Plan for about 4 months when theopponent he was playing with that day said something that wasmusic to his ears: "You've really got that driver of yourssinging today."
After he'd wiped the broad grin off his face he knew that he hadjust received a signal - his game had moved into a differentleague. Other people were noticing that he was playing markedlybetter.
Just a few days later he won a major competition on a difficultgolf course. He could feel the confidence oozing into his game. Putts that had previously looked like snakes started to lookstraight. Fairways that had seemed overgrown with trees nowlooked yards wider.
Why his method works when many others fail
When he set out on his mission to become a Bandit he thought a lotabout the best way to improve his game. One of the problems he'dalways had was with the massive gulf between the professionaland the ordinary handicap player.
This gulf is one of physique, natural ability and time to play. Most professionals start young, they enjoy the game because theyhave natural talent and quickly become good players. They thendevote a lot of time to improving their game. This is acompletely different experience to that of the majority ofgolfers.
The Golf Bandit didn't pick up a golf club until he was forty years old. By then his physique had been 'wasted'by office life. He had limited natural ability and little time tolearn and practice. He just wanted to play golf.
So, when he laid out his Master Plan for becoming a Bandit hestarted from the point that he was an ordinary handicap golfernot a naturally gifted player. He developed techniques for honinghis game that were suitable for ordinary handicap players. Andthey have worked so well that he now wins over 80 percent of hisgames.
He now spends a great deal of his time finding new techniques, strengthening his game and writing articles and stories to helpthe members of his Gang of Bandits to become ever more successfulon the golf course. It is his aim to empower every member of hisGang to achieve the same level of victories that he achieves.
