How to Have a Positive Attitude as a Golfer

By Jane Blalock

The game of golf has always been an important aspect of my life. First as a young person growing up in New Hampshire, where I played amateur golf, then moving on to the LPGA Tour where I competed as a professional. Finally in the business world with the Jane Blalock Company in Boston.

Jane Blalock's Approach to Golf

My basic attitude has always been the same in all facets of my life, I'm tenacious. That's probably the one word that has always characterized me. I never give up, I hang in there, I wait for good things to happen. On the golf course I believe you play one shot at a time.

That sounds a bit redundant but that is so important. I play every shot as if it were the shot to win the tournament. You never give up; never count yourself out of an event because you never know is what is going to happen around you.

Jane Blalock's Golf Swing

My swing thought are very simple, I don't get very technical. I play by feel, picture great things happening and my attitude is always good. I never get down on myself and that is so important because the game of golf is to be enjoyed, it is to be relished.

I love sharing my philosophy with my pupils at the LPGA Clinics. Please share my great philosophies and enjoyment of the game. It's not just for business it is for a lifetime. The beauty of golf is that it can be played by all and it can be played forever.
