IHSAA Student Athlete Tip of the Week (3-13-23)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (3/13/23)

"Promoting Education Based Athletics in Indiana"

Brooks Koepka, PGA professional golfer, was on top of the world a couple of years ago.  He won back to back USA Opens (2017 and 2018) and won the PGA Championship in 2018 and 2019.  At the time, he was ranked #1 in the world and no one was playing better.  

Tough times were ahead.  Koepka said recently, "Golf's so crazy because when you have it, you feel like you're never gonna lose it.  And when you don't have it, you feel like you're never gonna get it." This can be said for athletes playing any type of sport.

Don't think you are alone when you are in a slump like Koepka experienced. It will happen when you play any sport long enough.  Push through the moments of self-doubt.  Keep working hard at your craft, stay focused on the basics and you will get it back sooner rather than later!
