Play Golf in Bed to Improve Your Game
I am always looking for new and easier ways to play better golf. So imagine my delight when I dreamed up this way of improving my game.
I was just lying in bed one Sunday morning dozing and dreaming about playing a great round in the competition coming up that afternoon.
For no really good reason I decided that it would be fun to play a round of golf in my head. So up I got on the first tee and that's where it happened.
As I was addressing the ball in my mind's eye I suddenly thought "hang on a moment; how about, instead of just watching the ball fly around the golf course, I watch myself actually playing the shots!"
Let me tell you that when I first tried this I was shocked by the way that I kept losing balance as I strove to hit the ball long distances. The question that kept coming into my mind as I watched myself was: "Do I really look like that?"
It was pretty shocking to see the way I was swinging the club. Actually, I'll rephrase that - it was shocking the way I was trying to club the ball around the course.
Right then and there I jumped out of bed and went downstairs and put on a golf instruction video. I watched intently for about half an hour and then I went back up to bed and started to visualize myself swinging exactly like the instructor.
I have to tell you that it didn't work for me that first time when I tried it. The problem was that I didn't really like the instructors swing. I thought he looked a bit 'chunky' and 'clumsy'.
So what I did next was to watch a big tournament on TV. By the end of a day spent like a couch potato I had picked out my man. A few minutes research on the Internet and I had ordered a copy of his instruction video.
The moment the package arrived I played the whole video from end to end twice without stopping. I just couldn't wait for bed time so I could doze off and start visualizing myself swinging like my new hero.
A few days later I had perfected the art of seeing myself swinging like my hero, shot after shot, hole after hole. All I had to do was close my eyes and there I was swinging far more elegantly and with good balance. The ball ripped out over the smoothly cut turf. I couldn't wait to get to the golf course.
For the first few holes I was just too excited, my whole body motor was running too fast for anything to work. Then for another few holes I was disappointed and disillusioned. But for the last seven holes of that round I managed to relax and just let the pictures in my mind play the shots and wow, what a difference!
It was not long after that when people started to call me a Bandit. I love to be called a Bandit, it means I am winning and that's what my web site at http://www. The-Golf-Bandit. com is all about.
