Q: Although I seem to hit the ball just as well as my friends on the Driving Range, I can’t seem to shoot a score as low as them. Why is that?
A: Improve your on-course Management
1. Imagine playing the hole from the flag backwards to the tee box: Using this image in your mind will help you develop a sense of where the trouble is. Good golf is as much about improving those playable misses as it is about hitting quality shots.
2. Know your strengths & weaknesses: Keep track of your stats both on the range and on the course. Track your fairways hit, greens in regulation (GIR), number of putts & Sand saves.
