As a young golfer, you can always learn something from other players, especially ones who have reached a level that you are aiming to reach. You can do this from the comfort of your own home by watching golf on TV. Watch the tour players go through their decision-making process and pre-shot routine. You will hear them assess the situation, pick a club and pick a specific target. Listen to the commentators when they say what clubs the players choose to hit around the greens and really watch how they play the shots. Watch how they handle bad breaks and bad shots.
Another great way you can learn from better players is to go watch a collegiate tournament that is close to home. This is a great opportunity to not only watch the players but also the coach. Watch how they interact with each other and how the player listens to the coach. If this is the coach of a school you are interested in then you need to really pay attention to their coaching style during a tournament. Watch how the players warm up and what they do after the round. You can really learn a lot from players who are out there doing what you are working every day to accomplish. Some of the best players in the world will tell you they grew up watching the players out on tour and tried to learn all they could from them.
