Some personal inspiration from Lexus-sponsored pros for Lexus-driving golfers

Posted: Jul 2, 2012

Golf-loving Lexus owners, we asked Lexus-sponsored pros from over the years to offer just one piece of golfing advice that they themselves live by out there—something that they'd like to share with their fellow Lexus owners for a little one-golfer-to-another inspiration:

MARK O'MEARA
Lexus relationship began: 2007
Golfing advice he lives by: "Ben Hogan once told me to keep my lower body very still—to feel as if it is in cement. This will allow your upper body to coil properly, with your lower body turning later in your swing. It helps you create a more powerful swing."

ANNIKA SöRENSTAM
Lexus relationship began: 2006
Golfing advice she lives by: "I was 15 years old and practicing on the range at Bro-Bålsta Golf Club. It started to rain so I called my dad to pick me up. As we drove out, my dad saw several juniors still hitting balls. He turned to me and said, 'you know, Annika, there are no shortcuts to success.' That was over 25 years ago and it still drives me to this day—not just in golf, but in life."

RAYMOND FLOYD
Lexus relationship began: 1996
Golfing advice he lives by: "The best advice I ever received was from my father, who told me the game of golf was not fair."

NATALIE GULBIS
Lexus relationship began: 2010
Golfing advice she lives by: "To have fun. It's a gift to be able to play the game of golf and it should be treated that way."

CHARLES HOWELL III
Lexus relationship began: 2008
Golfing advice he lives by: "In golf, nothing is given. You have to work hard or get passed."

JOHNNY MILLER
Lexus relationship began: 2008
Golfing advice he lives by: "Truly enjoy your good shots, and when you do hit a good shot, celebrate it."

PETER JACOBSEN
Lexus relationship began: 2004
Golfing advice he lives by: "My father taught me to play, and he always stressed the importance of rhythm in the swing. Any hurried motion in your swing will cause problems!"

MARK PFEIL
Lexus relationship began: 2007
Golfing advice he lives by: "Keep proper perspective. Always be mindful that golf is just a game."

JASON DAY
Lexus relationship began: 2011
Golfing advice he lives by: "Find a coach or teacher you believe in, then work hard, work hard, work hard."

NICK WATNEY
