36 CLUES FOR GREAT GOLF
And how to steer clear of them
Fixing the most common mistakes we tend to make.
THE MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN GOLF
WE DON’T LOVE THE TERM
“mistakes” here. It sounds kind of pompous and preachy, like we’re going to rap you on the knuckles or start slapping behinds if we get you to admit to any of these little gaffes. That’s not our intent at all (even if you’re into that kind of thing). We’re well aware of our own shortcomings – in fact, they were the catalyst for and provider of much of the content that follows. Think of our advice as coming from a good friend, a caring golf partner or the guy you tortured last Saturday by taking three practice swings before
every damn shot.
Our so-called mistakes are not limited to swing or playing faults. In fact, the bulk of them fall into the social and emotional realms, like hitting on the beverage-cart girl or thinking everybody wants to hear the blow-by-blow of the 98 you just fired. Our tips are mostly common sense, which golf sometimes has a funny way of taking away from us. So open your mind, and let’s go.
