My play has been anything but consistent. I can admit that.
I need to get more consistent with my play. I commit to that.
I want to be that consistent player who enjoys his play on the course and experiences something good on the scorecard.
Journeys Take Time
There’s a reason why the tagline for this site includes my journey to break 90.
It’s a journey and journeys take time.
You don’t just walk around the corner or down the block for 10 to 15 minutes and say it was a journey. No, journeys take some time.
Journeys take time for you to get the lessons that they offer. You might discover some things along the way, but you usually have most of the takeaways towards the end and after the journey has been completed.
Consistency Pays Off (in the Long Run)
Consistency has a payday.
The problem with that is that it usually takes time for it all to pay off. The payday for consistency is typically in the future. It usually pays off in the long run.
You don’t just show up and (POP or POOF) it all works out. That’s not realistic. It takes consistency. It takes time. Over time, it leads to a payoff.
Seeing Results on the Course
You’ll get the added benefit of seeing results emerge along the way. That’s the beauty of the journey. You can see where your consistency has led to game improvement and where your inconsistencies have led to repeated mistakes and errors in judgment.
Less time invested means you’ll see fewer results. Add another day on a short par 3 course. Put in an hour or so at the driving range. Place an emphasis on your short game. Whatever you do, add to it more consistently.
The results keep you motivated.
The results keep you coming back.
