I’m up late tonight. I actually went to bed and just couldn’t get my mind to stop. I kept thinking “If I could do some things over again I would….” To be honest I was uncomfortable. I was recalling all of the mistakes I have made and missed opportunities. If there is one thing I don’t like thinking about its about how I could have done better. “If I would just have given 100% things would have turned out differently. I find that singular thought almost unbearable.
Before I get too far into this blog, here is my personal email Toddg@moenormangolf.com. Please feel free to email me any of your thoughts if you have them. I enjoy your ideas and comments.
Ok, so looking back at the past is futile. I get it. That’s why I am up writing this blog. Mostly because I want to give you and Moe 100% and I want you to give me your thoughts.
I was talking to my brother earlier tonight and I said to him the same thing I have said for years – “I would rather fail teaching Moe’s Single Plane Swing than be successful teaching the conventional golf swing.”
That seems like a bold statement but actually its perfectly logical to me because I know one very important thing – that every conventional golfer will eventually need to simplify their swings motion. Every conventional golfer will need Moe’s mechanics someday if they want to play golf in the future. However, there is the problem with this scenario. Most of these conventional golfers will quit playing golf before they hear about Moe and the Single Plane.
That is what keeps me up at night.
Heck, I’m one of those people. If I had never met Moe I would have quit the game. Moe’s swing gave me hope and a chance to keep playing the game. Because of Moe, I even loved to practice. Moe’s swing (having a model) made it fun to learn and master. I learned to love every moment of playing golf whether on the course, hitting a few wedges or just hitting into a net.
I’m not trying to sell you on Moe’s golf swing. Actually, if you are completely happy with your game and enjoying playing – I probably would recommend that you keep on playing and not change a thing.
I lose sleep because there are over 1 million golfers that quit playing every year. A portion of those golfers love the game but are frustrated. Golf isn’t fun for them anymore. The thought of someone loving and enjoying the game but so frustrated that they stop makes me very sad because they never tried Moe’s swing and found what I found.
So here are my questions for all of you (who I consider my family).
- What can I do to help more, is there anything that I can do to help you?
- How can I reach more people who are frustrated and want to quit?
- What is more important – enjoying playing or enjoying practicing?
The reason I asked the 3rd question is because one thing I have discovered for all golfers who love golf (and have achieved a high level of skill) enjoy practice as much as play.
Here is my final three question and maybe the most important of them all.
4. If you don’t enjoy practicing, what would help you enjoy practicing more?
5. If you DO enjoy practicing, why do you enjoy practicing?
I used to ask people “Why do you play golf”. I found that people play for many reasons. I learned that there is something I would rather know to get to the heart of why they play. Here is my final question and its a doozy…
6. If you aren’t reaching your potential with your golf game, why don’t you quit?
Ok, I’m heading to bed now. When you read this blog today, please spend 10 minutes to send me an email at my personal email address Toddg@moenormangolf.com and let me know your thoughts.
Thank you. Goodnight.
