Slow methodical movements. Isolate a single area you want to improve upon and work on that till you are proficient.

For example in my case I am working on the hand position at the top of the backswing. Less behind more, more over my right foot. So It is this one specific look I want to see more in the video. To do this I do a lot of movements with out hitting a golf ball. Slow motion swings, less than 50% speed, really drilling in the feel I want.

For. Me it is a combination of practice and playing. I am a 14 hcp and need to play at least 40 rounds per year (I am in Canada in a shorter season), and need to do range work twice per week to show better scores - I got down to 11 hcp two years ago in this manner. If I play and practice half that I get worse or stagnate in terms of scoring. But I am not a natural athlete and I need to do work to progress. I have friends who don't play and practice and can break 80 on almost any day :-(

How much practice and what practice?


When I was first starting out many,many years ago, a pro told me I needed to have a club in my hand every day. Putting, pitching, full practice swings whatever, but feel a club in your hand every day. I followed that advice and years later played to a 5 handicap. I played or practiced every single day.

My advice, take it for what its worth, I'm no pro.

Get lessons

Work on swinging the club fully and keeping your balance throughout the swing

Pitch and chip to a target-always always always work on where you want the ball to land. Pick out a leaf or try to hit into a bucket. Focus on a landing point!

There's no such thing as too much putting practice. Experiment with putters,  grips, stances,

remember what works and try to repeat it.

Good luck
