What would I want to learn about?
I have spent a great deal of time the last few years working toward getting my elementary education degree and working as a paraprofessional. My wife and I also had our first child 11 months ago, today. I have spent a lot of time the last few years doing assignments that I am told to do, helping kids learn how to control their behaviors so they can stop impeding their learning, and preparing to be and being a father. Getting our house ready for a baby was more of a challenge than I thought it was going to be and once she came into this world it has been a nonstop process. With everything going on in my life, it has been hard to find time to do anything for myself. I have recently started golfing again after spending a long time away from it. It was something that I was around when I was growing up because my mom’s family are avid golfers. I have spent a few summers now trying to get better but I want to spend any time that I ccan on trying to become a better, more knowledgeable golfer.
I would like to spend my time during this project to study the game of golf. I want to learn about the history of golf and all the techniques about being a good golfer. There are so many different elements when it comes to swings from different places around the golf course and I want to become a better player by studying them. Golf is a very difficult sport and I want to be able to spend sometime working on myself as a golfer. It takes an incredible amount of patience, mental toughness, strength, and finesse. There are so many different factors that come into play each time you go out to golf. I believe that with being able to do research to study different approaches and how professionals go about their craft will be a huge advantage I could take onto the golf course. I want to watch instructional videos about how to fix different parts of my swing as my back swing, grip, ball placement, shoulder placement, footwork, and follow through are all effecting my golf game.
My grandpa is in the Nebraska Golf Hall of Fame and I would like to think that I could become a good golfer someday. My uncle and cousin are both known as some of the best golfers in Alliance and I want to learn how they got to be so good. It requires as great deal of practice, but without the money to afford an instructional coach I want to spend my time researching and collecting information on how to become a better golfer while learning about the history of the game.
