A Chess Match

A tight golf match can feel like a game of chess. When going head to head, it helps to watch your opponent’s every move. There are signals being sent in the actions a golfer takes during competition. Some moves show confidence while others indicate restraint. It’s smart to keep a keen eye on how your opponent comports themselves during the battle. A golf match is a contest between not only skills but also decision making. The result comes down to who can execute the best strategy. Understanding when to move your pieces and why makes all the difference.
