Golf can be a very frustrating game…
Golf is a game requiring skill, strategy, mental control and the ability to accept the rough (excuse the pun) with the smooth.
Golf is an increasingly popular sport throughout the world and is now one of the most popular pastimes in the UK.
You and I are only one of over 6 million golfers playing in the UK dreaming of that elusive hole-in-one (even better if it was getting it at the Postage Stamp at Royal Troon)!
It’s not impossible and not just a dream!
But it IS frustrating!
It’s particularly frustrating when we know we can do better. When a par 4 at the 10th one round turns into a 7 on your next round (and worse the 7 is in the medal). Not good for confidence or our handicap
Getting your handicap down
As an average club golfer we all want to see out handicap come down but for many of us this becomes almost a dream as we only play to our handicap for less than 25% of the golf rounds we play.
And it often feels that the 75% are all during medal rounds!
What can we do to make a difference?
Your handicap is just a way of estimating your playing ability and is intended to show your potential and not your average score as is commonly believed. To play to that potential we need to be more consistent and raise the percentage of ‘good’ rounds over time.
It won’t happen overnight as there is not just one thing that will make the difference but…
Small changes, big results
Over a period of time, depending on how often you play, understanding, learning what these little changes are and the effect they can have will make a difference.
Almost all golfers have misconceptions of their problems but professional golfers know that the secret to playing better golf is in the way you approach and address each and every shot.
Making these little changes will help you to achieve a better swing, better ball distance, better and more accurate ball control flight and more pleasure from each and every of your golf games.
