Practice More in 2004

Make a resolution this New Year’s season to spend more time practicing your golf swing, but moreover to do it with all of your clubs.
The golf swing is a motor skill, meaning you are training muscles for a specific act. Constant repetition of the same moves will eventually create a habit as long as your swing mechanics are proper for you. That's where I can help you determine just what mechanics are correct for you. Then use that motion to swing all of your clubs, not just your favorites.
Often I see golfers at the driving range using only the clubs they know they can hit well. That may be fun, but it’s not very productive for the overall game. Force yourself to practice with clubs you are less confident with, like the mid-to-long irons and fairway woods. Driving ranges are workshops! Do your experimentation on the range before you take your swing to the course.
Golf clubs are nothing more than tools with which you play the game. Having more tools at your disposal can make the game more satisfying and enjoyable.
HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR!!
