IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-16-2020)
“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”
Xander Schauffele is one of the top professional golfers on the PGA tour. His father has been his only swing coach throughout his golfing career.
Schauffele’s father stated during last week’s Masters tournament that the fire inside of him (Xander) is the difference maker. He said, “If a kid has it there is nothing you can do as a dad to stop it, and if he doesn’t have it, there’s nothing you can do as a dad to make it happen.”
You cannot be driven by your parents, family or coaches to find that internal fire. You have to build and fuel the fire for yourself. You will then separate yourself from your competitors in your work ethic, attitude and discipline. It will become a difference maker for you both on and off the field/court!
