Golf in the real world

Two stats for you. Remember the below starts are date taken from the best players in the world (PGA Tour) and this is their average or best.

1 – From 100 yards in the fairway the tour average proximity to the hole is 17ft

2 – From between 180-200 yards the best on tour proximity to the hole is 31ft

Its’ been proved (with lots of data) that 90% of club golfers shots come up short. Yes you might achieve one of the above outcomes once or twice in a round and if you do give yourself a pat on the back-because that’s world-class….but sadly not your average.

To change this outcome, next time you go out play golf try ignoring the flag and take a club that will hit to the back middle portion of the green. Try it for x9 holes and see where it gets you. Golfers who’ve tried it have noticed a ‘spike’ in greens hit in regulation, getting closer to the hole and a reduction in shots.

Know how far you hit a club. Hit 20 shots with say an 8 iron, get rid of the best and worst two, the middle of the remaining group of golf balls is how far you hit that club. Note i said how far it goes and not how far you carry it. With golf courses getting very hard and bouncy knowing this is really important in applying a logical and helpful strategy.
