I have been known as the Golf Anti-practice expert
for some time now. What does that really mean?
Well, I'll tell you in a nutshell that it means that I
know that you can improve your game without going
to the practice range. That's really it. I teach folks
that most of what they should be doing for game
improvement lies in their head. The funny thing is
what they know it...and yet they still are fighting the
brainwashing that has been programmed over the
years into them.
So what I really mean is...you can improve without
traditional practice. That is throwing your clubs in
the car, driving down to the course or range, and then
getting a bucket to beat some balls.
For instance, can you improve your game on the green
by indoor olf putting? Of course! The beauty of it is
that because it is convenient (it's in your own living
room), you'll actually do it. How many of us say things
like "well, just as soon as that project at work is over,
then I'll get down to the range and work on my game."
And the projects never end do they? Another one comes
up right after the last one and after awhile, you stop
making promises to yourself and just live with the lousy
scores you're getting used to. It doesn't have to be this way!
Yes, indoor golf putting is not quite the same as putting
on a real green, I'll give you that. But what can we gain
from putting on your carpet at home? A lot. Here's 3 big
tips that if you start focusing on, will pay off in big
dividends in lower score. And you can do them right in
your own home.
1. For starters, whenever possible, inject some pressure
into your putting indoors. Make up a game with a friend
and put a few bucks on it. You will be training yourself
on how to play under pressure. Whether or not you are
on carpet or grass makes no difference there.
2. Take some time to putt for fun (not practice) while
totally just focusing on keeping your body still. You can
and should do this while watching TV. Pay attention to
how it feels when you are still and only moving your
shoulders. This is valuable no matter what method you
use. You always want minimal movement in putting.
3. Get one of those tools that puts a straight line on a
golf ball. Work solely on striking the ball and making
the ball roll so that the line stays straight as the ball
rolls and doesn't wiggle. Folks, this is huge! If you can
do this on your carpet, you can do this on a putting
green. And when you do it for real, the ball goes
exactly where you aim it. Many folks are totally
unaware that they put sidespin on the ball while putting.
Are you starting to get the picture? Use this kind of
idea at home, at your office, anywhere that you can
work on your game for just a couple minutes if nothing
else. Think out of the box on how you can improve your
golf. Many of us are just so busy with our lives and jobs
that going down to the range just never happens now
But you can lower your scores anyway.
