Share This Resource

Michael Connell is a former professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour (@PGATOUR). Connell attended Mississippi State University and now resides in Dallas, Texas.

Connell talks about his experience developing his golf skills—although he did not possess the physical skills other players did, he was strategic and constantly played the “chess match”, putting himself in the right position to develop further whenever he could. He shows how even if athletes aren’t as physically developed or strong as players surrounding them, they can find other ways to improve their game and ultimately succeed.
