How to Dial in Your Golf Game and Enjoy the Season Even If You’re Not a Pro
For most amateur golfers sneaking in a quick 9 holes after work or looking forward to that early Sunday morning tee time, the primary goal is just to enjoy the game. But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to chip away at that handicap too. You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the benefits of becoming a better golfer. Here are three pro tips to help you dial in your golf game and enjoy the season like you never have before.
Lock in on your short game.
Stop three-putting that par 4 by picking a putting drill to practice before and after every round. Sticking to a practice routine is a simple way to see big results. Start small and be consistent. For the biggest impact, tighten up your performance on the greens by spending extra time six feet and in. Short putts are a part of your game that can improve drastically with just a little extra practice, so take the time to dial in your short game and watch those scores drop
Think straighter not further.
With the latest lineup of young guns like Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy and Wyndham Clark hitting longer off the tee than ever before, there’s more pressure on the amateur golfer to prioritize distance. But if you can’t control the ball, it’s going to hurt your game. Distance doesn’t matter much if you’re always hacking your way out of the rough or spending all your time digging out of that bunker.
If you need evidence, look at Tiger’s latest win at Augusta. He patiently and strategically picked his spots, avoided the big mistakes that sunk his competition, and pulled out one of the greatest comeback wins in sports history…and he’s not even close to the powerhouse he was 11 years ago when he won his last major. So, forget about that guy in your foursome who drives it 350 yards and focus on location. Think straighter not further this season, and you’ll find yourself leading that four man scramble.
Use the right clubs.
Golf technology has come a long way, and treating yourself to a set of custom golf clubs built to help you dial in your game will be the best way to enjoy the season like a pro. Companies like PXG set out to designs clubs unlike anything else. With more than 280 patents on the books, PXG has introduced a full line of high-performance clubs that are the best on the market.
If you’re prioritizing high performance this season, you need a set of PXG clubs that are built by hand and unique to you. And when you see your game improving, you’ll have your new clubs to thank, and you’ll have more fun too. If PXG clubs are good enough for golf legend Gary Player, Masters Champion Zach Johnson, and two-time major champion Lydia Ko, they can help you play your best game too.
So whether you’re a pro, an amateur, or somewhere in between, get the most out of this season by dialing in your golf game with the right gear. You’ll be surprised by how much more you enjoy playing by employing the three tips above
