Consistency is the Key

The hardest part of golf is consistency. It is not possible for any human to hit a golf ball perfectly 100% of the time. That includes Tiger Woods. However, what very goof golfers is consistently hit the ball very well the majority of the time. They hit it nearly perfect quite a lot of time.

What sets them apart is consistency. Even those at the top of their game have days they don’t get their shots right too many times. Golfers can only get that consistency is through practice. This is the only thing that can really help.

Consistently bad shots are another matter that needs to be addressed. This is the major matter when it comes to gold consistency.  To make something a natural behavior you must do it consistently.

The also applies to poor technique.  Address poor golf techniques as soon as possible.  The sooner you start working on them the sooner you will be able to practice the correct methods. Then you can start making the new actions second nature.

The best thing is for everyone to get professional instruction before ever attempting to play a round of golf.  That way they won’t learn bad techniques and need to relearn them at a later time.

I would recommend before ever attempting a round of golf newcomers have lessons. Learning how to use one club well is an alternative to lessons.  You probably want to learn how to play with the 7 iron. Play the entire round or nine holes using just the 7 iron and a putter.

One player I knew I knew make dramatic improvements to his game by using this technique

This happened after he had been playing for years. He began playing golf with only the 7 iron and his putter. Once he perfected his swing, he introduced other clubs one at a time.  Once he perfected his swing with the 7 iron he went on to master the other club with ease.
