Everyone seems to agree that good course management is essential to scoring, and is one of things that separate the amateur from the pro. Jack Nicklaus, for example, is recognised as the best course manager that ever lived, so it’s probably no surprise that he’s also the most successful golfer who prefer playing with taylormade burner 2.0 irons
. So what would we handicap golfers need to do in order to think our way to better scores?
The best lesson I ever had in course management came from a team partner on a par five hole where I hit a good drive with clubs from taylor made burner 2.0 irons for sale
online store. The approach was about 230-yards, uphill, and there were bunkers either side of the fairway where it narrowed about 40 yards short of the green. I pulled out a 3-wood and my partner said: ‘Can you reach the green with that?’ and I replied that I probably couldn’t. He then asked: ‘Can you reach the bunkers?’
The lesson I learned was ‘Think about what you’re doing.’ It sounds obvious but you will often see handicap golfers selecting a club purely on the basis of the distance they face, rather than thinking about where they want the ball to go, where the greatest risk lies, what they can reasonably be expected to achieve and where lies the greatest margin for error.
Put more simply, every time you swing the taylormade r11s driver
you should have a specific target, and a specific reason for choosing it. For example, the big tree on the left often blocks my approach to the green, so I will aim down the right side of the fairway, just inside the bunker, because if I’m behind the oak, I will have no shot and have to play out sideways, whereas if I’m in the sand I still have a chance of going for the green.
It is also probably true that if you analyze the rounds where you have scored particularly well, your success will not be as a result of a succession of fabulous shots with cheap r11s driver
– it is much more likely to be because you cut out some of the garbage. If you’re happy shooting in the 90s and above, and want to continually test yourself with ever more difficult challenges, fine. But if you want to improve your scores, here are a few suggestions.
We know, from bitter experience, that golf has the potential to create more mental health problems than redundancy, recession and an unfaithful wife combined – a lesson that was brought home to me very starkly during a couple of rounds in Kent recently.
But the reason for mentioning it is not to heap scorn on his head or even to solicit your sympathy but to report that, the very next day, over one of the toughest layouts in the British Isles, he scored 35 points and won the competition in which we all battled.
