TAK­ING YOUR GAME FROM THE RANGE TO THE COURSE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Locker Room -

Many golfers are un­able to trans­fer the les­son they re­ceived from a PGA pro on to the course. This is not all about the tech­nique, but rather con­trol­ling tempo and ten­sion on the course. When I watch my stu­dents on the course, three things change – Tempo, Body Ten­sion and Ex­pec­ta­tion of Re­sult. On the range the ex­pec­ta­tion of re­sult is not too im­por­tant as a golfer is work­ing on his or her swing. The body is re­laxed and the tempo is con­sis­tent, be­cause there is no in­ten­tion to hit too hard, or worry about how far the ball is go­ing. Play­ing well on the course means trans­fer­ring the same tempo and lack of body ten­sion from the range. This should be the fo­cus, rather than tech­nique.
