Golfers, what makes it worthwhile?
I’ve played golf infrequently and casually for 15 years. I had my first lesson a month ago. It helped some, but I still totally suck and it’s getting tiresome to constantly have to play out of the (desert) hardpan and through the trees. I don’t really enjoy it all that much despite efforts to just relax and enjoy the day. My lack of skill more often creates exercises in futility.
By contrast, I am a solid tennis player and as a result enjoycthe game even when I’m getting my ass beat.
What are some mindset approaches, techniques or other suggestions that will allow me to enjoy golf more? Or should I eliminate and simplify?
