One thing I hear all the time is “I hit it great on the range, but when I go to the course it’s like I never practiced.” Have you ever felt this way??? If so, this drill is for you…
In my opinion this all stems from the way golf is practiced. Can you name another sport in which you practice in a completely different environment than the game is played? Have you ever seen football practiced anywhere, but a football field or basketball not on a court? NO CHANCE, but golf is practiced in a big open field, on perfect lies, with random targets that have no consequence if you miss them. No wonder all of your practice sessions go well.
