Over the last 15 years I've heard just about everything from golfers who are struggling with their game:
"I keep missing short putts"
"I can't consistently hit my irons"
"I can't figure out my short game"
"I play like a pro one day and terrible the next"
"3-putts are ruining my rounds"
"I need to fix my slice"
"My chipping sucks"
"I've tried everything to increase my distance"
After talking to hundreds of golfers and hearing the same struggles over and over again, I started to realize something...
The problem isn't that certain people are bad golfers, it's that they don't understand the underlying principles of great golf.
And like all principles, there are specific ways to apply them to drastically improve your game.
This may sound obvious, but be honest with me... when was the last time you focused on truly understanding golf's principles and applying them to your game.
Until you understand these key principles, it's impossible to play consistent golf.
Will you still have a few good rounds?
But will you play well consistently, round after round?
Think about the last time you had a great round. Remember the hole seeming like it was the size of a watermelon and everything just feeling easy? All you had to do was step up to the ball, swing, and watch good shot after good shot.
My question to you is this: Do you actually know what you did differently that day to play so well?
Do you truly know WHY you were playing better golf?
Chances are you thought you did in the moment, but the next time you played you fell right back into your old ways... in other words... you lack CONSISTENCY.
The thing about consistency is that it can't be faked. You can't stumble into it by chance, and it doesn't come without an understanding of how and why something happens.
So what do you need to do to become more consistent?
Know the key principles of great golf. Understand why they work. And apply them to your game.
