It’s in the hole!

Who said the Fall Series on the PGA Tour is not exciting. The last couple of weeks we have seen some unbelieve ways to win tournaments. Rocco Mediate wins the championship by holing out with a wedge on the 17th hole. This is after him holing out 3 other times during the tournament. This is testament that the goal is to get the ball in the hole in the fewest amount of strokes possible and that thinking about making a shot beyond 100 yards is possible.

Last week Jonathan Byrd makes a hole in one during a playoff to win the event in Las Vegas. Now, are these two situations probable, no. But are they possible, of course. The lesson is to see the possibility on the course, instead of the belief system of “this probably won’t work”. Golfers limit their thinking because of past results. In the heat of competition Mediate and Byrd were locked into the possibility of greatness.
