Be­liev­ing in a win­ning for­mula

The Citizen (KZN) - - FRONT PAGE -

It is that time of year where I get to min­gle with some of the world’s great­est golfers at the Ned­bank Golf Chal­lenge hosted by Gary Player at the stun­ning play­ground in the sun – Sun City. It is in­cred­i­ble to see some of the Euro­pean play­ers com­pete in the swel­ter­ing heat and still per­form at a high level. It got me think­ing about some rel­e­vant ques­tions you may be ask­ing: What does it take to be a pro­fes­sional golfer and what does it take to suc­ceed?

Tiger Woods is one of the all-time greats in golf and through­out his ca­reer he was undis­puted and plays on a level very few can com­pete with. The wheels did come off for him which, I be­lieve, had to do more with the men­tal side of his game rather than phys­i­cal pose and ta­lent. I have de­cided to use a more cur­rent golfer who is not only a gen­tle­man in golf but also a role model that young chil­dren and fel­low aspir­ing golfers can look up to as an ex­am­ple. This is none other than Rory Mcll­roy.

I was lucky enough to come across some of the in­ter­views he did over the past five years. Some of the ques­tions posed to him in in­ter­views were what he be­lieves is the se­cret to his suc­cess.
