About this Quote

This quote by Chi Rodriguez speaks to the significance of method in golf. Having all the shots in the bag is inadequate to be effective in the game. Understanding how to use those shots and when to utilize them is necessary. It is not enough to merely have the physical capability to strike the ball, but rather the brainpower to analyze the very best strategy. Golf is a video game of method and requires a lot of idea and preparation. It is not enough to just have the skills, but rather the understanding of how to use them. Understanding when to hit a driver, when to lay up, and when to choose the green are all important choices that should be made in order to achieve success. Golf is a thinking male's game and needs a lot of idea and planning in order to be successful.
