If you head out to almost any golf course practice range on a sunny Saturday afternoon, you are likely to find a long line of golfers hitting ball after ball. Of course, they are all there for the same reason – to improve their game and shoot lower scores. As golfers, we always want to get better, and improving our swings is commonly thought of as the best way to do just that.
But what if there is another way?
What if you could get significantly better without making any changes at all to your swing? Obviously, that is something that every golfer would be very interested in.
That ‘other way’ does exist, and it is commonly known as golf course management. That is the name given to making smart decisions as you work your way around the course, whether it is picking the right club for a certain shot, or picking a safe target line to keep your ball out of harm’s way.
Between two golfers of equal physical skills, the player with superior course management skills will almost always be the one to prevail.
