As Einstein once said “the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result".
For most amateurs golf practise has been proven to be a complete waste of time and effort, whether this be at your local driving range or practice ground.
Have you been stuck at the same level for a long time? Well, poorly thought out or ineffective practise habits could be the single most significant factor in your lack of improvement.
How about giving this a go:
Make your practise more difficult than the game. Aiming to a wide area is not beneficial, find the smallest possible specific targets.
Sir Don Bradman, famous Australian cricketer had a batting average of 99.94 (world record by a significant margin) and he used to practise throwing a golf ball against a wall and hitting it with a stump.
On the golf course there is a consequence and there always will be, predominantly your score. Your practise needs to reflect this. Set yourself challenges and record the results for a quantifiable improvement. This way statistics will prove that you are actually improving.
Confidence without competence is just misplaced belief.
My overriding principal for better golf has to be quality over quantity every time and only work on one thing at a time until it has been grooved and becomes natural.
Good luck and let’s see some results.
