A real Guru talks

I like this. A lot. It comes from an Indian Guru (a real guru, not a gooroo) on what he thinks the Indian cricketers need to do when they play.

“They shouldn’t play for India. They shouldn’t play for the nation. They shouldn’t play for diplomacy. They must just whack the ball to the boundary”

On a another cricket note I wrote about Adam Gilchrist who was taught by his father to “… just hit the ball now”. Just brilliant!

Compare that to an Aussie Olympic swimmer who was potentially distracted by Twitter when she was favourite for the gold medal. Not sure where to even start with this one.

Now to golf. If you’ve been changing clubs, tweaking your swing, analysing your handicap and worried about your score and still not playing how you’d like, then maybe it’s time to “whack” that ball.

When it comes to playing the game a simple approach will work better. Hitting the ball is what it’s about and this mindset will clear the clutter and set you on a better path.

    I agree with the above because I now try to simplify things as much as I can and to a degree it is working.I don’t profess to doing it perfect but as stated I am getting rid of a lot of clutter.

      Lukey: When you’re really “playing the game” there is no right or wrong. Stop thinking about being “perfect” and you’ll do way better.

    I couldn’t agree more with you on this one Cam. Sometimes we all get the urge to work on a technical aspect of our game. Whilst this is ok it should be done away from the course so that we dont fall into the trap of “playing golf swing” on the course. Golf is just a game and needs to be played, which means keeping things simple and just hitting the ball!

      Timbo: The temptation is to do everything in your power to be successful. Sometimes it’s better to forget all the crap and just get on with it.
