Many golfers spend countless hours at the driving range but are they truly getting better? Many golfers will hit a plateau and will struggle when it comes to taking their golf to the next level.
Here are some of our tips to get you ahead of the rest!
If you want to improve your golf game, the first thing you should do is to set some short and long-term goals. Identify what parts of your game are lacking and what you need to improve. It’s important to set down specific and measurable goals that you would like to work on.
E.g. Break 90, hit 70% GIR, reduce the number of 3 putts per round etc.
Work on your Short Game
Working on your short game is one of the most effective and quickest ways to help improve your golf game. Knocking it close inside 100 yards and being confident that you can get the ball up and down when you do miss the green, is vital to improving your scores. With enough practice around the green, you will definitely start seeing improvements in your scores.

You should definitely consider scheduling a lesson with a golf professional at your local club. Getting professional advice and making small adjustments to your game could see you significantly improve both your swing and your scores.
Assess your Strengths vs Weaknesses
If you are looking at becoming a better golfer, you will need to assess what weaknesses you have in your game. Recording stats in relation to your round of golf can be a big help when trying to identify which parts of your game are lacking. Professional golfers often track; how many fairways they hit, how many greens in regulation they hit, how many putts per round, and much more.
Create exercise schedule
Golf may not seem to be a strenuous activity at first glance however it does require the use of explosive muscle movements. Over time this can cause tightness and general aches and pains. By conditioning your body for this with some exercises or gym sessions it can help to improve your flexibility and reduce muscle stiffness and pain. An increase in strength or flexibility, or even just being pain-free can help see a dramatic improvement in your golf.
