‘Don’t overdo it at the range’

Noren de­lib­er­ately joined a course with­out one... and this is why

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - INSTRUCTION -

Last year I joined a golf club with an old Bri­tish-style golf course. It is called Ullna, near Stockholm, but the most im­por­tant thing is that it has no driv­ing range. That was im­por­tant for me be­cause I could never han­dle the bal­ance be­tween im­prov­ing my tech­nique and play­ing. Now, I play a lot more on the course. Be­fore, if I played nine holes and I didn’t feel so good, I went to the range. Now, I use the course as my range. I re­ally was that player who didn’t know when to stop hit­ting balls on the range. But now I’ve grown out of that. For me as a player it doesn’t work any more. But if I never al­lowed my­self to prac­tise that would be tough, so I use the range over the win­ter. I used it to work on some big­ger changes – but six weeks of that was enough.
