A better golf game is achievable by any golfer. It doesnt matter what your age is, how good a player you are or how long youve been playing. But the key to a better golf game may not be what you think.
The standard approach to a better golf game is taking lessons; buying more equipment; and hitting hundreds of golf balls at the range.
Although, the above approach is not altogether incorrect there is one crucial missing element. That element is your BODY! You swing those fancy clubs; you hit all those balls at the range; and you physically participate in the aspect of taking lessons.
The common denominator is your body. Do you agree? If you dont, Id like to hear youre explanation of why not.
If you are following me, and think Im remotely correct, then why wouldnt you work on your body to play a better golf game?
Im constantly hearing golfers say theyve taken lessons, bought new equipment and pounded hundreds of balls but still have not seen improvement.
Thats the telltale!
That leaves just one thing YOU.
Dont get me wrong I firmly believe you need an understanding of golf swing technique, and golf equipment can help. But pounding balls just for the sake of doing it wont help you play a better golf game.
Now picture this.
You do a few simple stretches and golf exercises daily and go out to play. You now realize you can make a bigger backswing with less tension; you have more clubhead speed enabling you to hit longer drives; and you are not worn out on the back nine.
Isnt that worth the minimal investment in your time?
To play a better golf game youve got to take a different approach than what you are currently doing. One that gets to the root of the problem. The one thats causing those mishits and inconsistencies.
You will be amazed at your outcome if you take this approach. You will finally play a better golf game.
