Lower Your Scores by Learning Your Game
Before constructing a game plan to lower your scores and become a better golfer, you need to fully understand yourself as a golfer before you can make improvements.
Lets get start your golf improvement by answering a few questions:
- Who are you as a golfer? Personality traits should translate to behavior on the golf course.
- Why do you play golf?
- What is the present state of your golf game?
- What is the your current game plan to achieve your desired game?
Scoring Average: _____________
Know Your Distances
It is vital that we figure out how far you hit your clubs. Distance control is very important to shooting low scores and saving shots during a round of golf.
Think about it – how often do you see them flying greens or coming up way short? If your distances are accurate, you will leave yourself with long putts on the greens for birdie instead of trying to get up and down to save par.
Learning how far your clubs go is a controllable factor. It just requires practice!
Lets start by hitting 3 balls with each club. If you have access to a Launch Monitor this would make the process much easier! Make sure to take a full, controlled swing.
Trackman Combine – Compare your game against the pro’s!
If you have access to a Trackman Launch monitor, I would suggest doing the combine every month. This is a good way to test each dimension of your wedge control, short irons, mid irons, long irons, fairway woods, and driver accuracy. It will give you a final score for the combine and you can see where you measure up against touring professionals!
Hopefully this helps you prepare a game plan to learn your game better. You can then develop a game plan to lower your scores!
