Reference is the least of our problems with the technologies we have got at our disposal today. Everywhere you look information is all around us. Perhaps that is why our era has majored in information technology because our society has progressed so much with it. YouTube golf is a term derived from the ease of extracting reference from the World Wide Web. YouTube in particular is a website that has made a lot of untrained wannabe golfers become acquainted with the sport.
What is the difference between an optimist and a pessimist as far as the things they can do? Yes, you’re not correct. The answer is nothing. The only difference between the two is that the former is able to find something to motivate himself. An optimist gets the job done simply because he’s able to find something to push him into the pool where he is able to differentiate himself as being wet compared to us dry ones. Normal folks who are so used at delaying things are dried or devoid of motivation. Knowing of something that can be easily accessed at anytime for some vital tips in golf can be made into motivation for someone trying to learn the sport.
Before there was YouTube golf, a budding golf learner would need to scramble any golf instructions he can find. We try to find as much resource as we can and that’s not going to be as easy because there are no search engine in a library. Usually what you have to do is to pay for the information you want to get (something unthinkable for someone who has no budget for this hobby). What this lack of reference does is it limits the sport to those who can afford it. Let’s face it, you would have a better chance to find someone who could teach you at the very least the basics of basketball or football than to find one who will teach you golf – and you can find that guy just around the corner.
In the past we have made good with books. YouTube has a major advantage with books because of the videos which are very important if you’re trying to learn something that requires movements. A book sometimes also comes with videos or power point presentations embedded on a cd. If you manage to grab one of those they will be very helpful but would still pale in comparison with the range of knowledge YouTube golf now has to offer.
YouTube has an incredible traffic. Traffic ensures that it is a video hosting site with the most expansive and diverse number of videos. Every minute, 60 minutes of video gets added to YouTube’s library. That leads to vast amounts of video content from which anyone can browse from because it’s free. One has to simply type in the keyword “golf” and you would be delighted with the videos that will be listed in front of you in seconds.
There is still no beating one of the old ways of learning though, and that is learning from someone. Today what that usually means is that you have to acquire the services of a golf instructor or enroll in a golf training school. These won’t be necessary for most folks who will not have any plans of turning professional. Most of the learning from YouTube golf will do.
