Who to believe? Did the USGA reach out or is Faxon trying to keep the flame alive? Either way, I’m hoping we see them play together soon. It would be awesome to see them tied for the lead on Sunday in the same group. What a pressure cooker that would be.
Here are things that helped me a lot:
Analyzing the game hole by hole after every round. Identify where you are losing strokes, what errors you are making, identify patterns and weaknesses. Identify top 3 reasons for lost shots. All these are not about swing mechanics but how the round was played, decisions made etc. This should give you things to practice in the range and fix. Go after it one by one.
Play with better golfers than you, learn and observe how they play and how they manage the game. What their choices are around the course
A good instructor - tough to find a match, but its the quickest way to identify flaws and learn the important improvements you need for your swing.
Regular range and rounds. More range sessions fixing the 'top 3' items before more rounds.
