As of today, 8/21/19 I'm an 11.9 index trending to 12.0. One of my primary golf goals has been to get to at least a 5 index and maintain it and my focus on that goal has slipped some as of

... Pay close attention to both ends of your game. If you diligently work on your short game it will help you go low when hitting the ball well and save your a$$ when you aren't. In my experience most

If I can get to single digits, anyone can! #noodlearms

Forget chasing a handicap. Forget it and let it happen. Play golf. Do or learn whatever it takes (legally of course) to score par or better on most holes. Free your mind and you'll drop to single faster than you thought possible. Don't worry about your swing or what you think you look like playing golf. It doesn't matter. You don't have to submit a video of your game to hold a 5 hcp. You can do it. 🏌️‍♂️

@mr.hicksta work on your short game, THAT is the key to lower scores and lower handicap.

I don't mean master using a 56/60* wedge, I mean master using whatever it takes to get the ball nearer the hole from around the green, if that means skulling a wedge at the balls equator, or using a hybrid to 'chip' then sobeit.

Secondly take the fear away from any putt under 8 feet, if any of them miss it's because it lips out, not because you missed the hole or came up short!

Do this young padewan and you'll be knocking on Mr Single figures door sooner than you think.

Good Luck.

This is some sound advise. I was just listening to episode 39 of No Putts Given and they were talking about wedges and grinds. I think this is the year I go wedge crazy. I’m going to focus very strongly in this area this year.
