LPGA Championship winner Anna Nordqvist and the power of positivity in golf
Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist showed poise well beyond her years on Sunday at the LPGA Championship, shooting a practically flawless round en route to a four-shot win for her first LPGA tournament win - and a major championship to boot.
Despite a world ranking of 214 heading into the week, her swing and poise drew comparisons to her hero, Annika Sorenstam. One of the secrets in her bag may very well be her positive swing thoughts. Captured by Scott Serio at Eclipse Sportswire, here’s a sneak peak at one of the ingredients in her level-headed arsenal, a page in her notebook that reads in capital letters: “I AM LIVING MY DREAM.”
Not a bad swing thought, at least better than a swing thought that often goes through my head: “Don’t chunk it don’t chunk it don’t chunk it!”
Serio was following Nordqvist from the time she took the lead earlier in the week, to check out his blog on the event, click here.
