When I sat down to write this article Bubba Watson was teeing off the first tee at Medinah in Chicago. The USA had a four-point lead starting the final round of the Ryder Cup.

I first touched a club when I was two years old. My dad cut little holes in our yard, stuck tin cans in the holes and mowed the grass a little shorter in those areas. He then stuck a homemade flag in the cans and voila, we had a golf course.

I have had the opportunity to play golf a couple of times in the last few weeks. Although I was able to hit the ball fairly well, I just couldn’t get the ball into the hole.

Golf is a great game that will test a person’s ability to control both their bodies as well as their emotions. But more important, it will test your ability to manage your thinking. You can’t open up a golf magazine without seeing five different articles on how to hit the ball straighter or longer from the physical side of things, but so rarely do you see articles addressing the mental side.
