Pick Several Targets to Practice To
Next time you go out to practice on the range I want you to hit to specific targets but not only at those target. I want you to pick areas to practice to. I mean hitting right of your target, left of your target, short of your target, long of your target and really learn to control your golf ball. Most golfers when they learn golf they have a hard time hitting fairways and hitting greens. One reason for that is that when they practice they are not hitting to specific targets, they are just hitting to a wide open driving range. They feel like they are hitting the ball well and then they get on the golf course and have a difficult time.
Learn to Control the Golf Ball for More Success in Your Round
Right here I am face with an 80 yard pitch shot, and not only am I going to hit some shots at the target but I am going to pick some areas right of the pin, left of the pin, hit some partial shots short and past the pin, learning to really control my golf ball. First I am going to hit a few balls left of the pin, I am going to set up, that was a good shot, I had good distance, just a little left of the pin. So after I have done that for a while I might shift and pick a different target. I might pick and area to the right of the pin. I am going to set up aiming just a little right of the pin, looking right of the pin. That was real good, I was probably about eight yards to the right of the pin. Learning to control where my golf ball is going. If you practice that way with all your clubs I promise when you get out on the golf course you are going to hit more fairways and more greens than you have ever hit in your life.
