:: 2C Wednesday, July 1, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter As sure as the sun will set. it will rise again tomorrow. That holds true for golf as well. There is always tomorrow when it comes to playing the game we so dearly love. I'm a true believer the game of golf is won between the ears, both personally and competitively• Remember this and employ it when the not-so-great round is in the making. We've all heard the old adage about turning the negative into a positive. We should always be able to take away something from our last round, both good and bad. PRO'S CORNER PGA JON JARESS Professional, Director of Golf Nakoma Golf Resort But for some strange reason, instead of exercising the making-lemons-into-lemonad e school of thought, we often apply Einstein's very definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Throw caution to the wind and mix it up. This could be as simple as our pace of walk from our car to the golf shop. Make that leisurely country club stroll, and as Walter Hagen once put it, take time to smell the roses• What Walter is saying is enjoy the things that are right in front of us. Even though a range ball just cracked my windshield and the outside service kid ran over my clubs with a cart I'm good. I found a flower, took a whiff and walked slowly to thefirst tee. Knowing the game is usually won on the first tee, I negotiated my bets for a sure victory. I felt so good, I was searching for another whiff. A bit of a rough start, but I think this Hagen dude might be on to something. The Grind Standing on the fi_rst tee, I spot it, that lovely lake lingering on the right side. As I tee up my ball, ! take a moment to enjoy the beauty and I'm ready. But, low and behold - bingo - a new Pro V at the bottom of the lake. What the ... this can't be! I took two whiffs and drank in the lake's majestic aesthetics• This Hagen guy needs to hang it up. Relax and break it down. Water on the right, so hit it left. How do we do this consistently? By playing the odds. Tee your ball up as far as you can on the side of the trouble and then hit away from it. This approach will open up the fairway tremendously. We need to think strategically like this with every swing of the club or tap of the putter. Up hill, down hill, side hill or flat? Wind in our face, or at our back? Putting with the grain, or against it? The questions are limitless. To make the most of every round we play, we must survey our surrounds before every shot. This is the grind. The windshield can be fixed, the six iron can be reordered, but some flowers only bloom once a year. Take the time, walk with Walter, and smell the roses.
