Your game includes the full swing, short game, putting, trouble shots, course strategy and your mental approach. These are not in any particular order, but you will be doing all of them in any given game. This season, try to determine what your strengths are and where is the weakness. If you are a decent ball striker, but you cannot chip the ball within 3 feet of the hole, that is where your focus should be. If you struggle with 50 yard shots, don’t say “well I will not hit the approach shot to that distance, instead I will give myself a full swing from 100 yards”. Work on your short game and your putting average will improve.
Most golfers practice what they are good at, avoiding the weaker areas, hoping they will not encounter the weak areas on the golf course. If you don’t know how to improve your weaker areas, come and see me. Let’s have more fun this golf season and love your game!
