From the Coach of Golf Note­book

What Should You Be Prac­tic­ing? Here Are Some Facts.

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - PGA OF NZ -

One of the most com­mon ques­tions I get as a golf coach is, “So, what should I be prac­tic­ing?” That is a great ques­tion and the an­swer is de­ter­mined by two fac­tors.

First, I al­ways ask, “What do you strug­gle with?” I've no­ticed that most golfers avoid prac­tic­ing the thing they need to prac­tice most. This is flawed think­ing be­cause your weak­nesses will al­ways be ex­posed dur­ing the round and when they are ex­posed, your score goes up a lot. So, what I like to do with my stu­dents is to at­tack the weak­ness and turn the weak­ness into a strength.

The sec­ond fac­tor is sim­ply sta­tis­tics. Num­bers don't lie. So, what is most im­por­tant in golf? It's all im­por­tant and all parts of the game are linked but here are some un­de­ni­able facts that will help you make the most of your prac­tice time.
