I've only been playing golf regularly for a couple years and generally shoot in the low 90s.  Break 90 every now and then when playing well by my standards.   Anyway, like every golfer, I'd like to play better and with more consistency and I'm willing to practice.  I go to the range once or twice a week but I read something a couple weeks ago that got me to thinking....there is a very big difference in going to the range and pounding/chipping/putting balls and actually...
The very first time I played golf (I was probably 11 or so) my dad entered me in some kid's tournament on the local par three.  I had no idea what I was doing out there but I had played baseball pretty much my whole life so I at least knew how to make decent contact.  I came to a long par three (170 yards or so) and I hit my driver as hard as I could and hit a wicked slice into the woods.  The ball hit the top of a tree trunk about 70 yards from the hole and bounced ...
