I’ve resigned myself to not hitting my golf goal this year of getting my handicap down to 16. It’s been a busy year with a house move, new golf club and a previous promotion in work has led to life getting in the way of my golf! So if any of you have a winning lottery ticket you can send me I’d really appreciate that.
However I’m not making excuses and I’m not giving up. Instead I’m already starting my ‘off season’ and making the commitment to practice more. This does not mean I will be a range rat as this is not the only way to practise. To be honest any form of practice is more than what I’ve been doing.
This post I wanted to take the time to share some links to other golf blogs and articles that I’ve read around the subject of golf practice. I’ve put a summary next to each one, but please do take the time to read some of the articles I’ve shared they take no longer than 5 to 10 minutes to read each so they are ideal for your alone time on the porcelain throne:
- Ladies Golf Blog – How much practice makes perfect? (https://www.ladiesgolfblog.co.uk/post/deliberatepractice)
There are 4 great tips in this article especially for new comers or those higher handicapers struggling to improve. The premise of this article is based around the notion of 10,000 hours to reach expert status in a skill, but Ladies Golf Blog (not just for women) has some helpful tips to put your practice sessions to best use.
- Golf Insider UK – Golf Practice: 3 Ways you should practice golf to improve
A great article that summarised 3 areas to focus on, but epitomises the approach a little planning before practice gives better results that randomly going to ‘practice’ because you feel it’s the ‘right’ thing to do. An article you should all read.
- National Golfer – “I’m practising – so why am I not getting any better?”
Something we can all relate to, especially me as I always feel as if one practice session and I should be better. This article gives a good bit of detail around some key areas when focusing on practice sessions and why we should be thinking of practice in a particular way.
Let me know what you think of these articles and tell me how much you practice in the comment section below. I’m thinking of doing a longer article on this and will try and document my results along the way.
Until Next Time, Happy Golfing
