Top 100 Teacher: Never do these 10 things if you want to lower your handicap
Golf is a maddening, often perplexing game. The journey towards trying to get better, no matter how good you are, never ends, and will always leave you feeling dissatisfied.
If you haven’t figured out by now, there is no secret. No one thing you can do that will magically fix everything. But there are best practices, which our GOLF Top 100 Teacher Michael Hunt wrote down for a student recently. Consider these your golden rules of what not to do if you want to lower your handicap, regardless of your current skill level.
So, what are they?
1. Don’t Practice
2. Play low percentage shots
Don’t be a hero.
3. Poor short game
4. No Focus
5. 3 putt every green
Golfers’ ultimate unforced error.
6. High expectations
7. Poor course management
If you’re struggling to break 90 consistently, this is probably you.
8. High tension
9. Rush from car to 1st tee
Jack Nicklaus doesn’t, so there’s no reason for you to do it.
10. Negative attitude
