What Would You Shoot If...
In talking with golfers, I often ask questions about what is the best part of their game, and what is the worst. The answers I get are all over the place, as you might imagine. How would you answer the questions? And how confident are you that your answers are really correct?
So, while driving last evening, I got to thinking about this notion of how much would you improve if you "fixed" the worst part of your game? What kind of scores would you shoot if you could effectively address that part of the game that you think troubles you the most.
So, here's an idea of you can find out just what the impact would be on your game if you did just that. Here are a few common answers to my question about the weakest part of “your” game, and how I would suggest you determine the real impact of that on your scoring:
You can reduce these distances a little if you think that is more reflective of your skill level. See how this second score improves over your real score and that will tell you something about hitting greens, playing to the safe side, and learning to throttle back your power until you can make those irons go where you want them to, within these allowable distance tolerances.
It's fun to dream about how our scoring would be impacted "If only..." and this is a great way to find out just what that impact would be. Then that provides you with the proof of where you should be spending your investments in lessons, practice and equipment.
