Are You a Competitor?
If you want to play high level collegiate golf and maybe beyond, you have to love competition. And I mean really love competition. You have to want to compete at everything from a paper toss into a trash can to a pitching contest with your friend. You have to really enjoy the journey to improving because not every day will be “fun”. Sometimes “fun” means practicing a little bit more and embracing your efforts. If you love to compete, then you will never leave a practice or competition broken-hearted. You may get your feelings hurt a bit at times, but that should make you want to set your alarm 5 minutes earlier the next day to go after your dream. If that happens, then you are a competitor!
