A Game of Opposites

Golf is a game of opposites. To hit the ball in the air you must hit down on it. To draw it to the left you must swing out towards the right (and vice versa). To hit it further you must swing easier to assure solid contact. Then why did it take me almost ten years to realize that maybe, just maybe to really get better at the game when you're obsessed with it like I am, all you need to do is quit trying so hard to improve. Just let it happen, I guess.
