I was flipping channels last night and caught Michael Breed finishing up a segment. Don't know for sure what the topic was, but it looked like he was telling folks something I've heard many times but often I find myself still not doing it.
I've always heard when you're on the range you should approach each shot like you were on the course. Same routine. Find your target. Visualize the shot. Take a couple (or however many) practice swings. Step up to the ball. Make the shot.
I used to be better about doing this on a regular range. But the range I use now has automatic ball feeds so I don't even need to get out of my stance between shots.
After watching a lot of other golfers, I see them hitting ball after ball just like I was doing.
It woke up up a little and I've made a resolution this year to make sure every trip to the range is more productive and purposeful and not just trying to turn my golf swing into an aerobic workout.
I wonder...how many people do actually approach their shots on the practice range as though they were really on the golf course?
Do you treat your practice shots with as much care as you do the shots on the course?
