Practice in Golf

Learn this easy tip to getting more out of your practice sessions

It has to be frustrating.

You’re trying to learn how to practice golf at the range.

And you are. But you’re not seeing the results.

This happens for a lot of players. But you shouldn’t be like them.

There is a reason you’re not seeing results.

And I know that exact reason.

Read on and you’ll learn how this easy tip will help you improve but also become a better player under pressure.

Every time I go to the range or short game areas I see something that truly bothers me.

I see people practicing without a purpose. Blasting away ball after ball. Hoping to train that muscle memory so they can consistently hit solid shots.

They think that the mere act of practicing will make them better.

Is this yourself? Chances are yes if you’re still reading this. It’s crazy how many golfers actually continue to practice this way and fail to get better. If it’s not working, it’s time to change things up.

Introducing Competitive Practice

This tip I’m about to give you worked wonders for me. It not only helped me become a better player. But it also helped me in learning how to handle pressure in golf and play better in tournaments.

The thing is I totally forgot about this tip. That was until a few nights ago.

You see I was getting ready for a tournament. And I didn’t have much time. So I went to the range with a friend. It was going with a friend that made all the difference in the world.

That’s when it hit me. I use to practice competitively with friend all the time. Below is a video with a few way to add some fun and competition into your practice sessions.
