Today, I’m joined by Jon Sherman, author of The Four Foundations of Golf, and creator of the Four Foundations Masterclass based on the book.

Jon shares a powerful story about playing golf with his father in Florida, which served as the catalyst for the four foundations concept and emphasizes the importance of aligning expectations with the reality of our abilities in the game.

The concept of managing expectations on the golf course is something that resonated deeply with both of us. Through our conversation, Jon and I explored the delicate balance between competition and enjoyment in golf, and how adjusting expectations can lead to a more satisfying experience on the course.

Jon and I delve into the crucial role that practice and feedback play in improving golf performance. Drawing from his own experiences and insights, Jon shared tips on how to strike the right balance between practice and play, and how to manage expectations with the two thirds rule and the PGA Tour Fallacy.

Key Highlights

  • Many players approach golf with an all-or-nothing mentality, basing their skill level on the success or failure they experience directly in front of them. Throw away this mindset. One of the greatest indicators of growth in the game of golf is incremental progress.
  • Golf shots can be divided into three phases: tee shots, approach shots, and finesse shots. Virtually no golfer can nail all three shots above average in one game. Focus on getting at least one of these three shots right to take the pressure off of yourself and build your resolve.
  • The PGA Tour Fallacy is when a golfer overestimates the ability of a PGA Tour player based on the highlight reel they see on TV. Temper your expectations for yourself by realizing that the best golfers in the world are nowhere near as flawless as the media makes them out to be.
  • Find the right balance between practice and play for you. Think of playing as a form of practice, and that you can learn from the experience.
  • Sometimes shooting your best score ever can be bittersweet. No matter how good you get at this game, there's a Jekyll and Hyde side to you, and the low-mid single-digit handicap is one of the most tortured golfers.
