Tip of the Week: Course Management

Back To News Stories


By : BGA Golf

One of the most common problems associated with playing is that players always play attacking shots from anywhere that their ball finishes. Basically, before playing any shot you need to work out whether or not you can play the shot you are about to play 7 times out of 10.

We all need to remember that even the best players in the world hit bad shots, but the repercussions of those choices are the key to playing and scoring well. If attacking shots are being played from defensive positions, then normally the penalty for failure is significantly higher.

Next time you are out playing take the time to assess whether or not you can play the shot you intend trying, 7 out of 10 times. If you don't think you can, then play a shot you can play 7 out of 10 times. You will have less shots by doing it.

To score better, you do not need to play your good holes better, but the 3-5 holes where you have outs. Every golfer needs to limit the number of bad holes they play and by always playing a shot where you can achieve a level of success you will be on the path to achieving good golf.
