Every golfer has something that they want to improve. It does not matter if the player is a professional or a beginner; something needs improving. In my case it is my entire game….well okay, things are not that drastic. Personally, if could filling in a weakness in my game, it would be my approach shots from 160 to 140 yards. I think that if I could improve that distance, my game would improve the most. Lowering our golf scores is about filling in in the gaps!
Hitting any golf shot requires a certain amount of skill. This ability waxes and wanes depending the time of day or year. It is impossible to hit a the perfect shot every time, but we all have the ability to work on areas of our game that require filling.
The easy fix for my game is to hit the range. Unfortunately, the closest training area is an hour drive from my home. There is on closer, but it is closed due to COVID. That is unfortunate because had planned to use it weekly, but alas, this is a first world problem.
If I could fix my challenges from 140 to 160 yards, I think I could lower my scores by two or three strokes. That would be awesome and make a huge difference in my overall game. So, I will continue to struggle for a bit and hopefully things will improve my the end of the year.
Filling in the gap of our golf game is based on the ability to identify where we need the most help. If you are having trouble finding where to focus your efforts, I suggest you start at the at the green and work outwards. Because most experience players understand that saving strokes on your short game is always the first place to start.
Filling in the gaps in your game is a process that does take time. It is worth the effort and I suggest if you have the time and desire to start immediately because time flies when you are having fun.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
