In any sport, the more you practice and train the better you perform. While golf is an individual game, practice and training can make a difference to your performance on the golf course.
As an individual sport, golf challenges the player to better their score each time. And while you may be playing regularly, your score may be plateauing and making you feel like you aren’t improving. Getting out on the practice range before a round or between games may help but sometimes it takes the help of a golf coach to really improve your game.
