How To Take Your Good Golf Swing From Range To Course (Video)
How To Take Your Good Golf Swing From Range To Course (Video)

Quite regularly in a golf lesson, I will sit down with the client, I will say you know, “How things are going with your golf and how is your improvement going and you know we have been working on things for few weeks, is everything going okay?” and they say, “Yes and no, Pete, yes and no.” On the driving range perfect, doing exactly what you told me to do, hitting the ball great, really happy with the way things are flying. Go on the golf course and it all falls to pieces and I just can’t recreate the same thing on the range and then on the golf course. And I think this is probably a fairly common thing that most golfers and I would even hold my hands up and say, same thing happens to me, you might stand there in this driving range, in the week or even just on the driving range before you tee off, clipping a few balls when you think, oh this is looking good, this is me, this is going to be my best round of golf ever.

First, tee is like a different person has turned up using different clubs and you feel like you are a left-handed all of sudden. It’s one of those things difficult to take the range on to the golf course or the golf course on to the right. You know the technique should be exactly the same, we have got the same clubs, the same ball, the same flat plain surface, hitting out here, it should be the same swing, the same technique but it just isn't quite the case. And I guess this is the same sort of thing that happens in lots of other sport, you might get a football team, where the manager says, oh the guys are little trained brilliantly, they are trained fantastically, to go out on the Saturday and they get whooped and they get beaten because they didn’t produce the same level that they did in training. And I guess this is where we have got to consider as a golfer that this is training, and on the golf course he is playing and the two things are slightly different. So in this next series of videos we are going to look at what can we do in our training time, to try and bring a little bit more of the real on course feelings and environments to the training process. So actually when we do go out on the golf course and play, they don’t feel like two completely separate entities but they feel a little bit more like, hey you are playing golf and there you are doing the training, so it’s a little bit more 50-50 rather than your training here and playing on the golf course are two completely separate activities.
