Spend several hours at a golf facility or driving range and you will see several different types of swings, postures, stances, grips and so on. One common theme however among high handicappers is how they practice their golf game. What do I mean?
I’ll give you a great example, one of our regulars comes about four to five times a week to practice. Here’s the rundown:
1. buys large bucket of balls
2. hits some wedges, irons but 60% of his practice is with his driver (all which can be purchased at up to 70% off from Rock Bottom Golf Coupon)
3. tries to hit everything the same way, high and straight
4. no practice on shot shaping, trajectories or even hitting some fun shots.
Check that with the practice routine of Tiger Woods:

6:30 a.m. – One hour of cardio. Choice between endurance runs, sprints or biking.
7:30 a.m. – One hour of lower weight training. 60-70 percent of normal lifting weight, high reps and multiple sets.
8:30 a.m. – High protein/low-fat breakfast. Typically includes egg-white omelet with vegetables.
9:00 a.m. – Two hours on the golf course. Hit on the range and work on swing.
11:00 a.m. – Practice putting for 30 minutes to an hour.

2:00 p.m. – Three-to-four hours on the golf course. Work on swing, short game and occasionally play another nine holes.
6:30 p.m. – 30 minutes of upper weight training. High reps.
7:00 p.m. – Dinner and rest.
I know what you’re thinking, dude is a pro golfer with endorsements (not as many as he used to) who can do this all day long, I work 60 hours a week and have just an hour or two for practice! I get it, so here’s what you do. Try the Bubba Watson way:
Here’s the summary of what his practice is like:
1. loosen up
2. hit some wedges, play some different trajectories and shots
3. work on your irons, if you had a problem try to work on that specific problem first. For instance, if you were hitting the ball fat, try working on your swing plane
4. hit woods – repeat above
5. this is something I totally buy into and it makes practicing fun…try inventing some shots. Can you cut a punch shot with a 7-iron and spin it? Sure you can…just takes a little bit of practice and it’s very fun to try.
In a world where finding time to do anything is becoming even tougher, why spend your time practicing on the same old routines? Think about this for a minute, if you have a consistent problem and then practice the same way, aren’t you going to reinforce the same problem? At least when you try to work on different techniques, you will get different results and then you can actually isolate and work out problems in your game. Practicing should always be fun and entertaining, not drudgery. For some bargain priced Golf gear make sure you visit http://rockbottomgolfcoupon.net/
