EM­BRACE THE STRUG­GLES

Golf World (UK) - - XXXXXXXXXXXX -

Justin’s in­flu­ence re­ally stepped in when I was strug­gling. I made only one cut in some­thing like 15 events when I turned pro (in 2015). I was find­ing it dif­fi­cult to mo­ti­vate my­self and Justin was adamant that he never stopped lov­ing the game even when he missed 21 cuts at the start of his pro ca­reer. He said he al­ways en­joyed the chance to im­prove ev­ery day and it’s so true. To­mor­row is an op­por­tu­nity to be a bet­ter per­son than you are to­day. The golf you’re play­ing can’t af­fect the per­son you are and your mood. Good golf shouldn’t make you happy and bad golf shouldn’t make you sad. You’ve got to be happy be­cause you’re do­ing some­thing you love as a job. That was the most vi­tal piece of ad­vice he’s given me. It got me through a bad patch to where I am now on the Eu­ro­pean Tour.
