Everyone knows that mental health is absolutely vital to living your best life both personally, professionally, as well as on the course. Did you know that your brain chemistry can drastically affect how you play the game of golf? The more that you practice and work on your game, the more training your brain will begin to recognize. Your brain, which controls all of your movements, will utilize its muscle memory before and after each shot that you make on the course, and ultimately, each move that you make throughout each round.
You must be in touch with your senses to be able to play your best game. The more you repeat certain movements on the course, such as putting or swinging, the more your brain will be able to adapt to the movements and analyze how to work successfully in the future. If you think about where exactly you want the ball to go within your surroundings, your brain will learn how to determine what the best approach is to hit the ball where it needs to go.
Building a healthy brain for your overall life as well as the game of golf is extremely important. You can build a healthy brain through eating nutritious, whole foods, making sure you are eating correct portions, and hydrating properly every day! It is also good to make sure you are incorporating some form of exercise into your daily routine to keep your fitness level up and your brain stimulated. Incorporating cardio as well as time to attend yoga classes and increase your flexibility will improve your physical health on the course, and your brain chemistry! To further stimulate your brain, practice golf as much as you can whether indoors or outdoors, learn everything you can about the game and keep your body moving.
Is It Wrong To Play Music On The Golf Course?
The development of Bluetooth has created the luxury of having a speaker virtually anywhere.
And anywhere includes on the golf course.
But old John Miller at your country club thinks it is completely ridiculous and against golf etiquette to do so.
So the question is, is it okay for millennials to play music on the course?
Yes, but there is a time and a place.
There is a certain area of the course where it is cool. Don’t be the guy blasting music next to the starter booth while the group in front of you is teeing off. Anywhere near the clubhouse should really be a “no music” zone. Be respectful of the first tee box and 18th green.
Once you’re a little deeper into the course, turn it up and enjoy yourself. The big thing is just being aware of where you are. Obviously if you’re pulling up to the green blasting AC/DC and the group is on the next tee box, you may tick off old man Miller.
It really comes down to time and place. It is like talking in elementary school. Be respectful of your peers, wait till it is right and when you do it, do it respectfully. Music is becoming more and more of who we are as people. And with things like Spotify and Apple Music, you can access pretty much every song ever made.
The problem with that is song choice. The slim chance the groups around you can hear your music, you don’t want people to complain about the music.
So be smart about your music, the safest bet is always classic rock, country or todays hits. Eminem, Ludacris or Five Finger Death Punch probably aren’t the best artists to blast on the fairway.
Music is a great way of entertainment and to add some fun into your round. I mean even Jordan Spieth and his, now famous, spring break group was playing music when they hit the fairways on their vacation. So don’t be afraid to charge up your speaker for your next round and play some jams while you shoot in the 100’s.
