A career in golf


What matters most to you?

Last week we asked if you could answer one question. With the ability to be entirely anonymous. We wanted to know how you viewed your position on a simple continuum. Where do you see yourself on your golfing journey?
At one end there’s space for the person who sees golf totally as a competitive sport, and on the other end there’s those that see it as a social and recreational activity. We’re asking golfers to position themselves. Next month we’ll publish a SUMMARY of how our community of golfers see the game.

If you haven’t already done so
So, if haven’t given a response then please follow the link below. It’s a very short and very private survey – no personal details required – so go on
Answer now >

Think about your golf

The second statistic we want you to collect over 4 rounds, is your average score on Par 3s that are within iron shot range. If you missed last week’s article, and the first statistic click here.

If you’re often under 90 but struggle to get below 85 regularly, then there’s a good chance that becoming consistent on the Par 3s will get you there.
Two 3s and two 4s on your card and you’re doing well. Three 3s and provided your steady elsewhere  then you’re likely to be below 85.

Improvements you can make that pay off on any approach shot:
If we can make sure your rotation and ball striking is led by your large muscles and not your hands, then we can improve your consistency of contact and accuracy of result. There’re a number of consistent club and shot selection errors we see from less experienced or skilled golfers that often cost them a stroke per Par 3. It’s an easy fix. 
“Improving your ball striking consistency, club selection, and shot selection on Par 3s will have a big impact on your approach shot performance on every hole.”
