I found this video quite moving and inspirational at the same time. It has absolutely nothing to do with golf but hit me between the eyes with an important lesson.

Little Cain was prepared to “play the game” before he was famous. He turned up each time and acted like he was a star when to everyone else he was wasting his time. The childlike mindset is perfect for golf.

Where it’s easy to say, “I’ll swing without fear when I start playing well”, that day rarely comes. Many of us can waste years of stuffing about, playing poorly and not getting the most from our game. How would you play if you knew you were about to shoot a record score? The next question is,

Why aren’t you playing that way now?

Cain didn’t wait. And when the crowd turned up he was ready. Will you be?
