What do you think needs to improve?

What part of your golf game do you think needs to improve the most. Do you need more distance, does your shortgame need to get better. I know everyone is trying to get there game better but what do you think would improve it the most.

Me personally I would say I need to be more consistent with my irons and wedges. One day I hit them great the next it's horrid. I also need to start getting less 3 putts.

    My game could use more GIR and putting. The putter will get hot and then stone cold, but then again my stroke sucks so it makes sense. The GIR is just not picking clubs correctly and feeling the need to hit a 7 185. So I could use some common sense as well.

    I need to work on most thing, but I mostly need to work on my long irons, planning my way around a course and my short game needs a little more help.

    putting and also course management. It would also help to have straighter drives

    My long game is my strength. driving the ball long and relatively straight.. i hit really strong long irons even though i dont hit them often since i hit the ball a long way off of the Tee. My iron game is always sharp, my swing is extremely consistent and grooved. I need to work on my short game since as you all know its never good enough. but my main focus is my mental game and preparation. i always feel i am prepared mentally then have one mental lapse over the course of a round that can really **** me over. My mental game is my focus reading lots of books and digesting everything i learn will only make me better.

    I need to work on my swing form. I just want it to look cooler and feel stronger and more centered. Putting is also major. The putter I have now is too long which messes me up so I might look for some 33" ones over spring break, It's the arrow not the indian.
  • I think the biggest thing for me to work on is my focus. I bet i lose 2 or 3 strokes a round because i don't think the distance through enough and hit the wrong club. If i could stay mentally focused for 18 holes and know exaclty what i would like to do on every shot i'd be in great shape.

    As a few of you guys said I really need to work on my mental game. Cause I go out there and once I have a bad hole it seems I just can't bring myself back and I get all mad and that only hurts me more. Also is with my mental game is when we are playing a slow round because of groups that were stuck behind and things like that I tend to lose focus.

    Iron shots, for sure. For every round I hit them perfect, I have 5 rounds where I can't hit them at all. Everything else is going smooth and consistent.

    And the metal side of this game is another thing I need to master. When I get down on myself, I'm done.

    can always improve short game and putting. course management on short par 4's and reachable par 5's. dont know how many times i have tried and regretted hitting driver instead of a long iron, or hitting a 3 wood second shot when 7 iron wedge would get me the same score, with more consistant results. i think we can all relate to that

    Putting-I could hit all the GIR i want, but then ill still take 36+ putts a round...thats no good.

    My short game could hold it's own against most people but I'm not a good driver or iron player. I don't hit it that far and I suffer from a bad hook. I certainly hope to improve this over the forthcoming season and see my handicap come tumbling down.

    Hit more fairways, get rid of my hook for good( getting used to weaker grip now), and make more putts

    My short game is great but can always improve. I'm relatively straight off the tee but have lost some distance over the last couple months. Irons also very straight but still kind of short. I can always live with being shorter but straighter than most but it would definitely help my game to gain some yards.

    So, in summary:

    1)chipping & putting(will never be good enough)

    I'm working on lots of things in my game right now. In my downswing, I've developed a drop where my arm gets stuck and I end up flipping the club right before impact leading to inconsistent contact and some wild hooks. I'm trying to get my right albow more on top of my stomach before impact. I'm also working on playing more bump and run shots around the green. I feel like right now I'm just over using my wedges around the greens when I could be using a 7,8 iron and getting better results. I also spent all winter working on my short distance putting(10ft and in) so now it's time to fine tune the lag putting. By early May everything should be back to where it belongs.

    And fairway bunker play. Definitely need to work on that. But I guess if I learned to hit the ball straighter I wouldn't need to. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':kewlpics:' />

    i need to improve consistency if i was consistent i would be awesome but i suppose that is the same with everyone. I mean some strikes it'l be perfect but then most of the time its just average.

    For My Game I Need To Work On My Consistency Like Mad, Putting Stroke, Short Game Is Very Good But Inconsistent But Can Always Be Improved, Need To Work On How Long I Last Before Feeling Weak, That Means Bringing The Dog For Jogs Every Evening Twice Around The Block And Playing At Least 24 Holes A Day, EMMMMM........
