Alex Honnold manhandled mother nature this past weekend on his historic ascent (WITH NO ROPES!) of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park like a genetically enhanced Spiderman.

This accomplishment is the equivalent of shooting a birdie on every hole at TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course from the tips, blindfolded.

“With free-soloing, obviously I know that I’m in danger, but feeling fearful while I’m up there is not helping me in any way.”

Golf does not have a lot in common with the climbing community; probably the only thing in common are the “gearheads”. …

For the better part of two months, I have been focusing on small improvements, and they are starting to pay off in a big way.

Recently I read we should “start thinking small” instead of thinking BIG. Sounds funny but dissecting a situation into micro blocks can help achieve extraordinary results. My theory is that it’s much easier for the mind to complete a small task on a regular basis, instead of trying to tackle the larger goal at hand.

The above theory helped me decide to work with a coach rather than the “standard” PGA Professional.

Standard PGA Pro: Hooks you up to a machine, lets the computer show what is going on rather that using a human coaching methodology.
