Resilient- adjective – meaning to spring back; rebounding. Synonyms – elastic, flexible, springy.
Even the seemingly unstoppable Tiger Woods has had to dig deep into his resiliency reservoir to spring back from his two year winless drought with four wins in his first seven 2013 starts!
Without this quality he may not have bounced back from his double-bogey water shot on his way to winning the 2013 Players Championship. Imagine the resiliency Sergio Garcia will need to conjure up at the HP Byron Nelson Championship just a short week after blowing his tie with Tiger for the lead when he plunked two balls in the drink for a quadruple bogey.
If the pro’s can return year after year, tourney after tourney, hole after hole, duffs shanks mis-hits and all, then there’s no reason to let a bad shot, bad day or even a bad year snap the elasticity of your game.
With so many Oak Island NC golf courses, you can take your time to tour all the local greens and find the links that play to your advantage. Then be sure and call up those pals who maybe saw a not-so-fortunate round and invite them over for a friendly game.
Golf can definitely be the avenue that strengthens your resiliency and reminds you that every day is a new day, every shot a new shot. Once you have bounced back you’ll fee rejuvenated; like you’re on top of the world and can accomplish anything.
Then, of course, you’ll duff another shot and the humbling cycle will start anew. Luckily, Oak Island is a golfer’s paradise where even the worst of shots won’t deter you from moving on to the next course.
And the next…
And the next…
So shake off those bad-shot-blues and prepare to bounce back better than ever with plenty of golf courses to make you forget the worst of shots and offer plenty of opportunities for bragging rights!
