4 Lessons

Learn from successes and failures

Many of my previous coaching articles have been about equipment, strokes, footwork, etc…
Today, I would like to share with you some thoughts about recent tournament matches and what I was thinking before, during, and after the matches.  I hope that you can learn from these four lessons.

Tournaments - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

During my 19 years of playing, I have competed in nearly 400 tournaments.  When I look back at those events, I see probably…
100 good tournaments
250 average tournaments
50 absolutely terrible tournaments
By terrible, I mean that my performance was much worse than I had hoped for and that I didn’t perform even close to my full potential.  So, if I would have avoided playing those 50 tournaments, would my playing career have been better during the last 19 years?????? 
Absolutely not.
