Hitting Golf Balls At The Range

How often do you go to the range to practice your game? When you do, have you given much thought as to how or what you are going to practice when you get there? Many players, including myself in the past, would buy a large bucket, whack them without much thought, then spend a couple of minutes chipping and putting. I realized many years ago that going to the range must be more than just hitting golf balls. I have talked about using your range time effectively in the past, but I think I need to up my game a bit more to really achieve something that will help my game.

Hitting different distances with different clubs is important to understand how well you hit your clubs.

In this article, instead of offering some advice that may or may not work for you I thought I would ask for our advice. What I am looking for is a specific drill that will help improve my approach shots when using an 7 or 8 iron. This distance runs between 140 to 160 yards. I am not sure there are any drills (I have not found any), but if happen to know any, please send them over.

If you have any websites, videos or links that could help me out, I am all ears. Until then I will continue to work on my game as best I can and see what happens.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Jim, you have written recently about mental approach and pre-shot routine. Your course management is spot on. If you are continually missing left with your approach irons, it’s probably mechanical. Maybe time for a lesson and hold off on adding another range drill. You may be drilling in a bad habit. Good luck!
