I’m not sure truer words have ever been quoted regarding the obvious divide in ideology between the golfers and coaches that focus on perfecting golf swings, and the golfers and coaches that focus on perfecting golf scoring.
They are mutually exclusive schools—even though many would vehemently disagree.
The reality is that...
I still go to professional tournaments and I know that when the dust settles, about 20 percent of the field will earn about 80 percent of the available income.
And those golfers all have one thing in common...
They are the golfers who ‘swing to score,’ and not the golfers that ‘score to swing.’
Think about it... .
And think about this. The majority of elite golfers who want to score better to become more competitive, spend most of their time perfecting their golf swing mechanics... (Strangely, all competent professional golfers hit between 66 and 70 percent of greens in regulation, and that statistical range hasn’t changed in decades).
In terms of income distribution, where do you want to be; in the 20 percent of the field that makes 80 percent of the money, or the 80 percent that makes up the numbers?
