Video Golf Tip | Specificity In Training

How can we improve our golf training? The first thing is to rethink, as we have talked about in many lessons, rethink your practice sessions. How can you make them more game like, more specific to the conditions that you are going to compete under. We have talked about illusions of competence, about fooling yourself about how good you really are based on hitting shots to either no target or to general targets and hitting 50 or 60 balls and guessing how well you are going to play based on the last few balls. Golf is not like that. That creates illusions of confidence. They key here is to create conditions that simulate the game pressure. Hit balls, hit one ball to one specific target, going through your whole routine, just like you were in a tournament, in the club championship. Separate out the experiences to one strike. Make that your golf training.
