Scottie Scheffler is a perfect example of what I meant when I originally posted about how to develop confidence. Last year, he was invited to player on the Ryder Cup team, a decision that was considered to be controversial since he had never won on the PGA Tour. Scheffler was a huge factor in Team USA's win over Europe 19-9.
This year Scheffler has built on that momentum by winning four out of his last six tournaments including The Masters and he is ranked #1 in the world. He is grinding it out one round at a time and has remained extremely humble through the experience. Personally, I like that he is continuing to learn and improve his game every time he plays. He also has surrounded himself with a strong support system in his family and faith.
When I teach beginner golf students, the most common feedback I hear is "this is harder than it looks." While this may be true, by the end of the first lesson, they leave with more confidence in their ability to learn and eventually play the game. I fully believe when you have experienced some level of success you will be motivated to get to the next level. It is my goal to help all of my students get to the next level and become more confident in their abilities.
confidence: the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.
