It is said that the fastest way to learn is to learn from the experts. In every sport, profession, hobby or way of life, people go through what is called a “Learning Curve”. This Curve is often a stage of trial and error, of learning what works and what doesn’t. If one does not have the patience or has the tenacity to continue, one can give up all too easily. One must be coached, mentored and guided.


Are you itching to amp up your game and skills? This article serves to be a guide to help people take their game of Golf to the next step.


Here are 7 steps to improve the quality of one’s skills from fair-to-middling to almost playing like a pro Golf player.


1. Consistency is key in pre-shots


    • Expert and Professional Golfers have the ability to focus on one goal: making a hole in one. That means that they block all distractions that would deter them from their goal. One of the ways that they do that is that they develop a pre-shot routine that works like clockwork so that they wouldn’t be bothered with small things that don’t need much focus and attention.


2. Purposeful Practice


  • Don’t just swing and club the ball. Have a purpose in mind and don’t just “play around” when playing the game: it could be mastering a technique or trimming shots from your scorecard. A great pedagogue once said, “Practice makes permanent not perfect” Be intentional with everything being done in practice to observe every movement that could contribute to a better shot

3. Know the distances of different clubs


  • Confidence comes from endless practices in the driving range. Test each club and see how it responds to the level of your skill, strength and capability. Test it until you can familiarize it to memory so that one’s mind can work on different creative solutions to solve problematic situations in the game itself.

4. Post impact consistency


  • Maintain the club in front of the chest at post impact to switch the weight of the body from the front side to the left. This keeps the consistency of the stroke.

5. Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want


  • Golf is also a training ground for one’s mindset. Never think of Worst Case Scenarios because it would only set a person up for potential disaster. Never think, “I might drive the ball to the hazard.” Instead, be still and confident and expect on the focused goal that is desired.

6. The rule of thirds


  • A good tip is to strategize your strokes by dividing the green into three parts. Starting from the 1st third just around the hole all the way to the furthest part of the green one can determine whether a chip, pitch or putt should be used.

7. Problems can be broken down into simple bits


  • If a person has trouble focusing on a problem. The first step is to be clear about what the problem really is and know the small unit one can work on to remedy the problem.
