Ted Williams proclaimed that Hitting a Baseball is, "The most difficult thing to do in sports", and golfers everywhere (most of whom have never played baseball) all called BS!! golf training aids
Ted Williams may be right though, since hitting a baseball coming at you at 90+ mph while curving, dipping, and changing speeds is pretty difficult.
Consider that you're trying to hit a spherical ball approximately 2.9 inches in diameter being hurled at you from 60 feet 6 inches away with a cylindrical bat, all while the pitcher is doing everything he can to mess up your balance and your timing. Consider also that you have less than 1/2 second to decide if you're going to swing and where in the strike zone to make that swing to meet the ball squarely with an almost zero angle of deflection to send it back out in the field of play - Wow!!
So in comparison to that,
how can hitting a golf ball that's just sitting there be so dang difficult??
That answer can really be as simple as realizing the "Initiation of Action"!! Hitting a baseball (like the "Initiation of Action" in most sports) is "Reactionary" and the athlete relies heavily on countless hours of practice and muscle memory to simply "react" to the play in front of him or her. golf training aids
On the contrary - Golf is NOT a reactionary sport!! The ball is just sitting there and the golfer initiates the "action" and supposedly "controls" the outcome. For that very reason, it is also critical (just like in other sports) to put in the countless hours of practice to develop a consistent and repetitive motion of muscle memory in your golf swing, and develop your own "Pre-Shot Routine" to help instill a consistent pattern and feeling for each time you step in to strike the ball.
I guess that's why they say that "Golf is 90% mental and 10% mental". Obviously it takes some athleticism as well, but if you've ever struck a golf ball perfectly and watched it fly straight and far, or high and soft on your intended line, then you know why you keep coming back. It's the consistency of achieving those "perfect" ball flights that often eludes us . . . but why??
Quite possibly because of the very fact that the ball is JUST SITTING THERE!!!! We believe that it can't be that difficult and we should be able to hit it perfectly with far greater consistency and that belief cultivates the enormous pressure we feel to hit it well all the time. We have to seriously let that feeling and that pressure go! golf training aids
The greatest advice I ever heard about golf is to
"Give yourself permission to hit the ball anywhere"!!
If you've put in the practice and have a good pre-shot routine then step in and trust your swing and just fire away. You're still gonna miss some shots, but don't worry - the Pros miss shots too! They just miss less often because they trust their swing and just step in and hit it. So, get your head out of the way and just have some fun. golf training aids
