Now back to Lee.. paired with Tiger and immense pressure, Lee fought through one of the toughest golf courses on the planet. Whether he holds his lead tomorrow for the win is irrelevant.
You see, just a few years ago, Lee debated giving up the game of golf because of his poor play. Thankfully for Lee and his golf fans, he powered through and re-discovered the player he could be.
As I’ll explain later in this article, Lee found the ONE thing he was missing…
… the key to unlocking his golf potential.
A key YOU CAN USE to unlock your golf potential (I’ll show you how you can do the same shortly)
But first, let me explain with a story from an interview with Lee Westwood I will never forget…
David Feherty was on the Golf Channel interviewing Lee Westwood in beautiful West Palm Beach.
The backdrop was incredible, and both men were sitting in wicker pool chairs enjoying the sunny weather.
Westwood is no slouch (although Judge Shmails is an incredible slouch) when it comes to playing golf. He has won the Order of Merit on the European tour.
However, Lee revealed that he was beginning to have some sinister thoughts about his swing… starting at the end of his best year on tour.
It’s amazing he was able to keep his game together and win the Order of Merit.
These swing thoughts led to a decline over 2 and a 1/2 years until Lee found himself nearing 200 on the money list.
To go from #1 to #200+ in a span of two years almost destroyed Lee. He was in danger of being relegated to a lesser tour if he didn’t fix things fast.
Lee talked to his family about quitting the game.. although, he had no idea what it is he would do outside of golf. He joked that maybe he would have become a TV commentator since it’s easy andFeherty could do it.
After hiring the best coaches in the business, Lee was still struggling. Lee said he hired all of the guru coaches and
they all essentially told him the same thing. Finally, he landed with David Leadbetter… still something was missing.
Lee Westwood, member of countless Ryder Cups, Order of Merit winner, leading money winner, and one of the top 10 players on the planet right NOW…
…seriously considered quitting competitive golf.
Lee had hit rock bottom.
Still not a quitter, Lee was determined to get his game back.
After reviewing tapes of himself during his slump, one thing stood out.
He had become bloated and fat.
Just then, he questioned… well who exactly were the best golfers? Lee noticed that all of the top golfers were fit and in great condition.
Realizing this, he changed his routine and included fitness.
Lee began getting himself into better shape.
Shortly after, something magical began to happen for Westwood…
...his game was coming back.
And while I am not saying being in shape is totally the reason, I think feeling better about who you are gives you a quiet confidence.
Being physically fit, liking who you see in the mirror, gives you confidence.
Lee Westwood found confidence and a resurgence by paying attention to his fitness.
The confidence spilled over to his game and every other aspect of his life.
The same will happen for you… if you implement a similar strategy as Lee.
I want you to sit and think for a moment on the following questions…
Do you hold the same positive and un-relenting attitude as Lee Westwood?
When tough times strike, can you keep on pushing?
When bad things continue to happen, are you determined to keep taking action? Are you committed to never, ever, EVER giving up on what is important to you?
Listen, everyone suffers through setbacks, even the top Tour players.
We all have dark days and dips in the road.
There remains one undeniable truth.
No matter how tough your current situation, the fact is, somewhere else on this planet someone else has a tougher situation.
And guess what, they are rose to overcome the challenges they face and pursue their dreams…
…because they never gave up.
It doesn’t matter where you are in life, in business, or in your relationships, if you’re going after something that matters, you just have to Keep Doing.
Ask for Help.
Never Give Up.
Keep on Going.
And when you fall, stand back up…
Failure is a chance to learn. Learn from your mistake, adjust, recalculate, and take more action.
Use your leverage.
Strain and struggle.
Just like Lee Westwood…
As the Golf Channel interview wrapped up, Lee made it clear he wants to win a major championship.
As he enters his 40’s… Westwood will be upping his fitness… he knows he will need to be as fit as possible if he is to compete against the younger and fitter golfers of this new era.
I wish Lee the best on Sunday and hope he can find the same determination that saved his career…and win his first Major.
And so here’s what that means to us…
That no matter how dark the day, no matter how deep the dip in your life, when all else fails all you can do is keep on pushing.
Lee Westwood came back from a dismal game to a top ten world player.
I’m right here to give you the support you need.
If you want to start today on your golf fitness, I’ve got an offer you can’t refuse… the best dealEVER.
