Drill, Drill, Drill and Forget It!
Golfers sometimes make the mistake of carrying over their practice session to the golf course. NOT a good idea.
Thinking about your practice assignment on the golf course could frustrate you to such a point that you give up on the good work you’re doing on the range.
You may be improving in “reprogramming” your swing fault on the driving range and NOT be ready to carry it out to the golf course.
Work on your drills at the driving range and let that work “meld” into your swing on the golf course. On the golf course your mind should be on club selection, shot selection, swing tempo and balance. You actually have a better chance of having the hard work to invested on the driving range produce results if you relax and let the new movements jump in on their own.
If you’re still having trouble with the transition from the range to the golf course then you need to stay off the golf course and get back on the driving range. Do your drills as often as you can whether it be at home, in the back yard with whiffle balls or in front of a mirror.
That’s why I think the off season is the BEST time to work on your golf swing.
