Unlocking Your Golf Potential

This is one of the better articles on the mysteries of the mind and how it functions. Especially for those of use who are still striving (i.e. 65-years later) for the ultimate in performance on the course. I recently experienced the great advise contained here by shooting a poor front nine of 48 and followed with a back nine of 36 (including a triple-bogey).

Follow the advise and you will find that golf is a much better game.

2016 – OVERALL GOLF PERFORMANCE BY STATE

Additional statistics for golfer to ponder. Friends at MyGolfSpy.com had published the supplement to 2016 – Overall Golf Performance by Handicap on May 3rd about our great golf game. In review there are may ways you can determine the final outcome. However should we take the information at face value we can see that the better players appear to play where there are more courses.

2016 Report – Overall Golf Performance by State

In review of the comments there are surely ways to change the justification of the reasons that your area is not #1 on the list (or any higher placement). Since there are those that question the statistics origin and validity, I would also content that persons are out there that have questions several official sites. My justification for this is the proposition by the USGA relative to golfers submitting unattested rounds for consideration on their handicap.

I fall on the side that submission of a round for consideration of handicap should only be a valid round under the rules. I personally don’t submit rounds for my handicap in which I have not played every shot ‘by the rules (IMO)’ on a valid course. Would look forward to comments.
