Improve Your Scores With Effective Practice like Richard
Over the past few weeks I’ve been chatting with Professor Mark Broadie the brains behind “Strokes Gained” the metric used by the PGA Tour for Stats and which he covers in his book “Every Shot Counts”
The purpose of the conversation was to get his take on how most handicap golfers can reduce their scores most effectively.
He recommended effective practice from 100-150 yard (70-120 yards for ladies) “approach shots” would be where most players would “GAIN SHOTS”
So based on his knowledge and using Trackman (ball flight measurement) I put together a simple skills test.
Richard is one of my performance squad players playing off 17 handicap so we tested him yesterday. As you can see from the shot analysis above he out performed his handicap by some considerable measure registering a score equivalent to a 2 handicap golfer!
This is because Richard has been practicing “Effectively” Over the passed couple of months and regularly testing himself..
How effective is your practice?
What do you think your approach score would be?
