Playing vs. Practicing
what's on your agenda?Improving your golf game is tough to do, and you hear different views on the best way to accomplish it. Both of the professionals i have spent time with have told me that it is important to balance your time between the golf course and the practice facility in order to see the most improvement. However, we have witnessed both work throughout history. Guys like Ben Hogan and Vijay Singh spend hours and hours hitting thousands of balls on the driving range, and they only play in preparation for a tournament or in a tournament itself. On the other hand guys like Trevino and Payne Stewart hated to practice, they wanted to be on the golf course enjoying the game. I'm curious as to how todays youth decideds to improve their game?
i play golf, practicing is not fun and i do not enjoy it, it is like a chore. when i have to hit balls i want them off the tee and into the green, i want them out of bunkers, i want to write down 3s and 4s and 5s on my scorecard and have a total when i'm finished. The practice facility is just repitition, too boring for me.
