Practice makes less perfect

| Golf | 0 Comments
They say that practice makes perfect. However, the more golf I practice the worse I get.

At the beginning of the year after a long cold winter break from golf, I took out the old clubs and hit the links. I couldn't believe how well I hit the ball back then and golf was fun and relaxing.

Now after nearly a half golf season behind me, my game sucks and my handicap is slowly rising. Golf is getting frustrating and it has become stressful and not fun at all. I keep practicing but that does not help.

What makes it extra frustrating is the fact that I used to be really good and it's hard to accept that unless some miracle happens I will never be that good again. Or not?

I could just quit but I won't. Golf is all mental anyway, illogical and addictive.
