In the Year of the Bogey
Just read an article in Golf Digest entitled, “In the Year of the Bogey.” After watching so much golf on TV, you start to wonder how bad is a bogey. The pros are always putting for eagles and birdies. And then we go out for our day of golf and can’t figure out how hard it is to get a birdie or even a par. So what’s so bad about a bogey? Leo Trevino once said that if you get a 5 on every hole and bogey the par threes, you will score an 86. That is pretty good with a lot of bogeys.
So the moral of the story is “Don’t be afraid of the bogeys.” Perhaps a message for today…Just don’t be afraid. Fear has a way of paralyzing us. I plan to make every putt so I seldom three putt cuz there is no fear on the green. In our day to day living, we will score well if we get rid of the fear!
