First, a dif­fer­ent job; about four months into this chal­lenge I went from a job where I was able to get home at 4pm ev­ery day and hit the prac­tice ground for a cou­ple of hours to a CBD com­mute where I get stuck in rush hour traf­fic and am home by six o’clock, if I’m lucky.

This re­ally ate into my prac­tise time dur­ing the week. But on the bright side, it has taught me how to prac­tice prop­erly. Sim­ply smash­ing ball af­ter ball at the driv­ing range is not the an­swer to im­prov­ing your scores.

What I learned, and what sep­a­rates a good player from a great player, is your short game.
