Golf Tips - Practice Thoughtful Swings

By Thomas Tetrault, PGA Pro

Most people practice more when they're playing badly as opposed to when they're striking the ball well. When you're playing badly, it's time to take a lesson - not practice a bad swing. When you're playing good and striking the ball well is when you want to practice more so you can learn to repeat that good swing. To be good at your practice you must think on every shot and develop a good routine. You're better off making 10 good thoughtful swings then hitting 50 balls rapid fire with little thought. Also, when practicing don't hit too many balls without a break because fatigue will set in and swing will break down. *
