LEARN AND PLAY: improve your scores and play everyday


Improving your scores doesn’t always mean improving your technique. Within the professional game there have been many examples of players who have made their swings more technically correct yet slide way down the rankings. Payne Stewart and Lee Westwood spring to mind, both eventually went back to their old so called flawed technique only to rise back and win a second US Open and become world No.1 respectively.

Knowing which areas of your game are holding your scoring back, having focused practice sessions and skill tests that work on improving your performance, along with having great course management, a solid game plan and an even more solid pre shot routine, would in most cases, lead to a far more drastic reduction in scores than any technical changes.

The only way you can actually do this is by playing on the golf course followed by making notes and keeping statistics. Build up over several rounds and see if any common patterns emerge. Do you miss too many fairways, do you hit enough greens, how many shots do you average from inside 20 yards, how many putts do you take. Or maybe did you stay focused on one shot at a time, did you drift into the future thinking about your score, maybe you went into the past and remembered the 4ft putt you missed on the 3rd when you are faced with another on the 7th.

To play our best we need to be honest with ourselves to understand what we do and think when we play our best and what we do and think when we hit bad shots.

With this in mind I have created a tuition break package to do just this. The package starts with an 18 hole playing lesson and assessment, on the next 3 days I spend time with the golfer working on understanding statistics and how to improve along with setting games and drills to improve practice sessions – of course if there are any glaring technical issues that need to be addressed we will do this too. But the focus is on playing so after these 3 hour sessions the golfer goes back to the course for a further 18 holes everyday to work on improving their scoring.

We can improve our golf, our scoring and ultimately our enjoyment of the game in many ways…….Take a moment to reflect “what do I really need to do to improve my golf” and most importantly maximise my enjoyment of the game.
