The #1 golfer in the world as of this writing is Dustin Johnson, a man known for his prodigious length off the tee. I "want" to play golf like Dustin Johnson. I "want" to be able to hit 350 yard drives and reach 600 yard par 5's over water in two with a 3 iron. I "want" to do this but I don't have the skill or talent to do this.

All I can be is who I am. I'm a guy who plays pretty good golf hitting it 280 off the tee, laying up to 100 yards, and hopefully wedging it in close for birdie. Most of the time Dustin will beat me on the hole, sometimes we will tie, and on occasion I will beat him. That's the reality.

When I try to play like Dustin because I "want" to play like Dustin, I fail. Every. Single. Time.

Sounds familiar...

Take a golfer who wants to hit a driver like DJ and have a short game like Phil. This player spends most of his time on the range hitting driver and working on his flop shot. Then after a couple of months he does a meticulous study of his scorecards. This study finds that from 80-150 yards out he's consistently giving himself a makeable putt but when he's 50-80 out he's getting up and down only 40% of the time. If this golfer can recognize that the point of the game is to get the ball in the hole in the fewest shots then he can adjust his game accordingly to play to his strengths and dial down to a 3-wood off the tee giving himself 120 in rather than pounding driver every time. It's still important to work on his weaknesses but playing to his strengths will score better.

Glad you're seeing success, keep it up!
