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

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
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:
- 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.
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.
Many amateur golfers never reach their full golfing
potential due to lack of practice. This is no surprise in the UK, where wintery
weather is enough to keep anyone away form their local course for months on
end. When practice makes perfect, its important that you have a space to keep
practising, even when the weather is bad.
Golfing simulators can provide the perfect alternative to a
time consuming walk around your local green and can even help you work on your
form and improve your overall game. Here’s How:
Modern golfing simulators feature state of the art
technology hat includes various training modes, custom settings that include
weather, location, wind and tee height; and platforms that can recreate the
exact feel of bunkers, roughs, and fairway surfaces.
Golfing simulators’ main appeal is their ability to provide
instant feedback sign sophisticated swing analysis so you can see exactly what
you are doing right and what you are doing wrong. Simulators can minimise days
on the course into a couple of hours so you can fine tune your technique using
detailed and accurate feedback.
Modern sensors are able to accurately track club movement, the contact on the ball, the
precise ball trajectory, showing you exactly where to improve.
The technology involved in modern golfing simulators is the
closest experience to a real golf course that has ever been achieved via
technology. These simulators an let you experience hundreds of the world’s most
famous golf courses in varying weathers, making the best courses more
accessible than ever before.
Talking about the weather, when the skies are grey and the
rain is falling, getting out for a round of golf is a daunting task. But, with
a simulator, you get to set what type of weather you want to play in meaning you
can have sunshine all year round if you wanted.
