If I had the guaranteed answer on how to shoot lower golf scores, I would share it in a heart beat. I would ensure that all my readers could share in my wisdom and shoot lower golf scores themselves. As every golf can attest, we all have our own views on what will work and what will not. Through trial and error, I have found ways to lower my scores over the years and most of them center around one area with smatterings of success in others. Now, I focus most of my efforts on this area and continue to garner small incremental gains that lower my golf scores.
Well, that is the end of my article. Hate to keep you hanging, but I got to go and polish my golf clubs.
Okay, my mind was on fire and of course I will share with you my process.
It actually is very simple. Practice your short game. That is it, practice your short game. I diligently worked on my chipping and putting for years. That is my big secret process. Work from the pin out and work on it often.
I know I am repeating myself, but I cannot stress the importance of successfully get up and down more often than not. Last year, my approach shots actually sucked. My GIR was less than 50%. So that means every second hole I had chip and putt for par. With a 4.72 shots over par (on average) per round, I rely on my short game a great deal. Fortunately, I practiced this aspect of my game for years and as a result, I was able to have a high save rate and lower golf scores.
So my process to lower golf scores is very simple. Practice your short game. I no more words of wisdom to pass on this matter. Thoughts?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
