- Watch good players and tournaments. People learn by imitation. When a husband and wife come to one of our professionals, they often have very similar swings. They’ve imitated each other unconsciously.
- Don’t watch struggling players. You don’t want to imitate their swings.
- Practice on the driving range, in your living room, or even your backyard. You don’t have to leave your home to get quality practice.
- Focus when you practice. It’s much better to spend ten minutes and concentrate on what you’re doing than spend an hour just whacking balls.
- If you’re hitting a bucket of balls, take breaks.
- Think about what you’re doing, and rest when you’re tired and frustrated.
- Don’t wear sun glasses when you play golf. They impair your depth perception. Most professional golfers don’t wear them as a result.
- Try walking the course. The tour players always walk. There’s a reason. It gives you much more time to concentrate on your next shot. And it actually improves the speed with which you play.
- Have a professional videotape your swing, then watch it, and analyze it.
