As the player progresses in golf they seem to go through several stages of development. The golfer first learns to understand the golf course for what it is and for what it "does". Then the player comes to learn their particular mechanics or to know how they individually handle the clubs. Then the golfer faces learning to accurately discern the shot at hand, to play the shot at hand, and then to see how to appreciate 'letting it go' in order to remain spontaneous and to adjust comfortably into and through the next 'new' shot.
What the player knows about the game and how the player plays the game creates the score on the card. The way that the golfer plays the game is as important as the swing talent they employ. The behavior patterns of the player are instructive and are important tools for growth. In golf, self-knowledge very much comes into play. Good golf seems to boil down to the player success at knowing themselves in terms of how best to play the game.
In this extraordinary game, the golfer has to walk their own road and to work their thoughts out about what they see with the course and their game. There are a lot of different things to deal with in advanced golf. It appears that shooting good golf consistently means that play first of all must be for fun and a good healthy time of play. It is always important to realize when learning and playing golf for fun is somehow lost because then restoring the joy one way or another is the immediate game need.
