Why Practice Makes Perfect in Golf

The average golfer spends very little time on the course honing their skills, and this really shows when the sport gets competitive. It really is important to consistently work on the areas that trouble you in order to become the very best, and this level of consistency and dedication is an attribute that can be found in many seasoned professionals. After all, there’s a reason why Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Dustin Johnson are some of the biggest names in the sport’s history.

As a general rule, you should spend twice the amount of time on the putting green as you do at the driving range because this gives you a dedicated block of time to focus on developing a consistent stroke and making short putts. There is a common misconception amongst golfers that playing the game is the same as practicing the game, but the former merely allows you to become comfortable with golf from a situational point of view: teeing off, navigating troublesome trees and figuring out how to play in adverse weather conditions are all well-known aspects of golf as a sport. Whilst this is all valuable practice, most golfers will hover around their average because they aren’t actively working on their weaknesses and perfecting their strengths.

By definition, practice is the act of ‘rehearsing a behaviour over and over’ and this is a valuable way to take your golfing skills from 0 to 100 because we often learn through repetition. In golf, practicing specific techniques like putting and chipping can help you learn the best way to approach a particular situation and obtain the best outcome, almost like trial and error.  After all, the main aim of the game is to get the ball into the hole in as few shots as possible.

Anybody who has ever watched The Open will know how long a professional golfer can spend deciding on their next move, and this is all down to skill and experience. It takes many hours of practice to develop confidence such as this and a lot of amateur and professional golfers will actually partake in drills in order to hone particular skills, hitting every ball with a purpose and a plan. After all, you have to practice like the best to become the best.

Sometimes it can be handy to perfect your golfing game with a simulator experience. Here at Inswing Indoor Golf, we have a state-of-the-art set-up that allows you to focus on developing your technique without the hustle and bustle of a busy driving range or the glaring eyes of the putting green. You can use your own clubs for familiarity and the simulator is just like being on a real course!

Benefits of golfing simulators

With technology on our side we no longer have to bid golf farewell when the weather turns nasty or when we can’t make it out to the course. With a golfing simulator you can enjoy some of the world’s most famous courses without having to wander too far; you can even have a simulator set up in your own home, making it easier than ever to practice your form throughout the year.

You can head to your local golf pro shop to experience a golfing simulator or you can install one at home to receive these great benefits:

  1. Can be used in any weather

Golfing simulators can be used come rain or shine, so instead of pondering whether those grey clouds will develop into rainclouds before heading to your local course you can head straight to your simulator even if the heavens have already opened.

  • Perfect practice experience

Online tutorials, YouTube videos, and reading books can only develop your technique so far. The only way to really improve your golf game is through practice. When winter hits a lot of golfers miss out on months’ worth of practice and can end up a little rusty by the time they get back out there. Simulators provide the opportunity for golfers to improve their game through consistency and the honing of skills.

  • Finding your perfect clubs

Golfing simulators allow golfers to practice with numerous clubs in a single session where they can receive feedback from the simulator on their technique, showing them exactly which club is the right fit for them.

  • Finding the best ball

It isn’t just your clubs a simulator lets you try out. Trying out different balls is time consuming when out on the course, simulators make finding the right ball for your game much simpler by allowing you to trial several in a quick and easy way.
