The Perfect Golf Shot

Every day I hit plastic balls in my backyard. About once a week I have a flash of insight while I’m doing that.

This week’s Backyard Epiphany is: every so often, your swing falls into place and you hit an absolutely perfect shot. Do not start chasing that shot. Enjoy it, then keep hitting with your normal swing. After all, that’s what you were doing when you hit the perfecto.

The more you try to recreate that perfect shot the harder it is to let yourself do it. Actually you can make your swing worse in the effort.

You don’t need perfect shots to score well. All you need are playable shots. Hit bunches of those and let the great ones come when they may.
