Knowing how to “win” is important for your athletic development
Many people would give anything to win a junior, amateur or even professional tournament. The difference between winning and losing, is grit. Finding that extra burst of energy to push longer than your opponent(s), cherishing the moments right before you make the winning putt, staying calm in the midst of overwhelming nerves. “Winning” encompasses all these abilities and those who “win” manage to find it.
Today we witnessed history, Rory McIlroy joined two other players, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus, to be the youngest players in the history of golf to win 3 major championships. Do you know why Rory looked so confident throughout the final round? He knew what it takes to win. He’s been there before, he’s been through the nerves before and cherished the moment before.
