Is giving 100% catastrophic for your golf swing!

If you’ve grown up playing sports, built your own business, or simply have that competitive gene in your blood, I’m sure you are like me and have tried to live by the rule of “Give it 100%” if you want to be successful in whatever it is you are doing, right?  Well, that just may be the kryptonite of your golf swing.
