Club Selection Is Critical To Low Golf Scores

Most amateur golfers make 100 decisions on what club to use during a round of golf. Of course that number of 100 is likely an average depending on how many strokes it takes for you to shoot a round, but I think you understand where I am going. Many of the decisions are no brainers, but there is one area that requires a great deal of focus and concentration in order to make a successful golf shot. The distance of 25 yards and closer to the green is where most amateurs fail proper club selection and I know this because of my last round of golf!

Losing Focus On The Golf Course

Two days ago, I happily made my way to the first tee. I was looking forward to playing and hoping that I could improve on my previous rounds.

Best Start To My Golf Season Ever!

My golf season started on a high note yesterday. I have had many great starts, but this year was my best ever. There were two instances that set yesterday’s round above my previous first rounds. I realize that this is my second round of the year, but my first round at my new home course. If the rest of my season maintains the high I had after the first hole, then my 2022 golf season is going to be awesome!

Flight To Roll Ratio When Chipping

To be honest, this is a topic that I never really gave much consideration. The flight to roll ratio when chipping was kind of an innate process for me, but after watching Kevin Haime – Flagstick Golf Magazine May 2015 – I think I need to put a few more brain bits into this topic. This is not a difficult process and there are many different factors to consider, however the flight to roll ration suddenly makes sense.
