To quote my father/coach/etc, "Preparation, preparation, preparation." This one little word is the key to me maintaining my sanity as I run around from place to place. I have to stay organized because my biggest pitfall is procrastination... (haha college helped a lot with that). This means for the last two weeks at home in Birmingham I've been doing just that. This means daily planning out my days with practice plans and goals to accomplish, planning out my workouts, and planning and preparing ahead of time what I'm going to eat. Tomorrow I'm traveling to Arizona for the Arizona Open. To be ready for tomorrow I've obviously packed and double/ triple checked my golf equipment, but I've also packed snacks I'll need for the trip and my handy/ dandy fitness bands and workout dvds so there's no excuse not to exercise. You see when I'm organized and I know I've done everything I can to take care of myself my golf game shines! So to quote my college coach Kim Evans its all about taking care of each piece of the pie. Now then, I'm fit and ready physically, mentally, emotionally to play my best golf so I can put myself in the winner's circle at the end of the tourney :)
Til next time, Hit em straight!
