Jeev Milkha SinghOne of the best lessons that I had reinforced from all the coverage of the Masters was expressed by emerging Indian star Jeev Milkha Singh who was in contention during the first two rounds. He’s been winning lately on the European Tour, and explained that for the previous seven years or so, he had been just trying too hard. In the last year, he made a conscious decision to relax and just play. In his words, he focuses on “routine and process” rather than “results.” Of course, that’s when his best results started happening. I keep seeing evidence of this conclusion. When I focus on just playing, having fun, appreciating how lucky I am to have the freedom to play golf, and most of all on the good feeling of an easy, relaxed swing, that’s when the best results happen.
