Personally Plan Your Golf
Your Epiphany Moment
After hours of practice on the range you probably have hit what I call the “Ah Hah” moment. You had that famous line in your mind, “I have it”!
That built up confidence probably was not really there because in the back of your mind you wondered if that range game would show up to the course that day.
Practicing on the range is important, and it allows you to build on the fundamentals of your swing. But when you get to the course it is very important to find the right techniques to separate your range game from your actual play on the course.
You need to recognize how you approach each shot that you face on the course? What emotions come over you? Do you accept the shots that face you or do you find horror in them when you are faced with a shot in the bunker?
If some shots scare you because you don’t do well with 180 yard shots, then what do you do about that? What tactics do you implement and what are the solutions you use to solve the problem?
Golf is not a game of perfect shots. You will not have perfect lies, perfect shots or circumstances each time. Golf is a game of multiple opportunities. You may fail some times. That is fine, everyone does. But how you approach each shot can affect your outcome and the decisions you make seem to run over into the next hole and next.
The time has come for you to see that how you look at your round has everything to do with what you create. It is not always about having the perfect swing for a certain shot. If you are finding trouble with certain situations on the course, you need to find better methods of approaching these shots.
You can spend hour upon hour on the practice range working on certain swing mechanics. I have been teaching golf for nearly twenty years now and I am the first to tell you that you need to have sound fundamentals in your game to play well.
There is no substitution for a good posture, grip or alignment with your swing. In all of my lessons and schools, I set aside hours and hours of time and technique to fix the faults my students have in their games.
When I play with students I hate to see them make poor shots on the course, it pains me to watch it because I can feel the agony in them when they make those shots.
But, more so than the poor shots are the poor decisions golfers make while on the course. They make the wrong club selection or attempt shots that are not really within their shot arsenal at that time. Plus, the decisions they come to, cause them to “hope” the next shot they attempt will succeed.
You can hope all you want, but hoping is not going to get that ball on the middle of the green from 180 yards out! You need to find a shot that will. You cannot afford to make poor decisions while on the course.
