‘How prac­tice rounds let you mas­ter shots’

Solve prob­lem shots in your stress-free prac­tice

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - INSTRUCTION -

I am not com­pet­i­tive at all when I prac­tise on the course. Yes, I’m try­ing to hit the best pos­si­ble shots, but I am not keep­ing score – it is more the bal­ance of hit­ting the right shot and play­ing holes like they’re meant to be played. If I just prac­tised on the driv­ing range and then went out to com­pete with my bud­dies in a money match and faced a dog-leg left around a tree, I’d just opt for my ‘go to’ shot to make sure I found the fair­way. But in my new way of prac­tis­ing, I try to ac­tu­ally hit the cor­rect shots for the hole be­cause I know in the long run that is go­ing to be more help­ful. So I’ll throw five balls down and learn how to hit a draw round the tree when I need to. In the end my ul­ti­mate goal is to hit that shot dur­ing a tour­na­ment. If the next hole asks for a fade, then that is what I will hit. This is the best way to im­prove, I think.
