Shifting the concept of Zen to the golf course, we can understand why golf is considered the most “inner” outdoor sport in the Western World. While it is true that golf requires, like all sports, a certain level of technique and training, it also requires concentration. The result is an exercise aimed at achieving the perfect swing.
Abandoning all the thoughts and worries that accompany our daily lives is a necessary step in reaching this goal. With this purpose in mind, we are able to give ourselves over to the complete concentration required by the game.
Golf is an invitation to abandon the concept of “hurry” and follow your inner rhythm which is based on the coordination of breathing and movement. The course with its wonderful peace and relaxing atmosphere helps you to forget the modern day race against the clock. And really, why would we want to rush a healthy walk around the course?
