One of the most common game improvement mistakes is to practice skills without beginning with a structured assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your game.
Many advanced and elite golfers practice golf skills often as a reaction to how they performed them in a recent tournament without realizing that the skill/s they're practicing might not be the ones that will actually make a real difference to the scores that they write on a score card.
Flip Your Approach From Being Reactive to Proactive
Reacting to poor shot-making is not the same as assessing your key golf skills to determine which areas of your game need more attention. In our approach to game improvement we always begin with an assessment of the different skills in a golfers game to identify the weakest-most important golf skills that will have the most positive impact on lowering your golf score average in tournaments.
How to Get Found When You're Lost
If you were lost somewhere you would logically look for some point of reference to help you to determine where you are relative to where you want to be.
Assessing and measuring your golf skills helps you to gain the necessary clarity you need to help you to know where your skills are at the present moment so you can determine where you wish to go with them.
In the following video (from our new program soon to be launched) David takes you through an assessment of one of the most important green-side skills that is rarely practiced enough by elite golfers, and he explains step by step how to perform an assessment that will show you where this important skill is in your game.
You should measure all of your key golf skills to extract the information you need to develop a suitable plan for improvement.
If you are an amateur golfer interested in becoming a top class amateur or professional then this approach to developing your golf skills this way should be high on your priority list when you practice.
Assessing your most important golf skills just makes good sense and should be a habit you action on a regular basis.
