Have you ever asked yourself the question: Why can't I bring my range game to the golf course?
I certainly have, probably 90% of the time and it is so frustrating!
If you have, I have an interesting point for you to consider. Golf is the only sport I can think of that separates the practice ground from the playing ground. Hockey players practice playing hockey on the hockey rink. Football players practice playing football on the football field. Swimmers practice swimming in the pool. Where else would they practice?
So why do golfers? So what's the problem? If I can hit all of my clubs how I want to on the driving range, why can't I do the same on the golf course?
Let me ask you this question: When is the last time you hit a bunch of 7 irons in a row at the same target from a perfectly flat lie with no consequence to the results of your shots while you played a round of golf?
Something I changed and it really worked for me and if you want to become better at playing golf on the golf course, you have to practice like you play I believe!!
Now I know for most people it is not practical or even possible to practice on the golf course.
So with that said here is my tip!
Try not hitting the same club at the same target ball after ball, but instead try doing this very simple routine when practicing on the driving range:
Change your club and target using your full pre-shot routine with each ball that you hit.
It is necessary to do these things if you want to play better when you are out on the golf course.
Golf is about dealing with constantly changing conditions and the best possible way to practice this on the range is as I mentioned above.
I would love to get your perspective on this and hope it will help you as much as it has helped meâ€¦
