A good practice session has a specific goal in mind. Whether that goal is to work on the mechanics learned in a golf lesson, or working on a specific shot or ball flight, the practice needs to mirror that goal.
I have found that the best way to analyze a golf shot is to ask these questions to yourself, in order:
“What did the ball do?” (hook, slice, high, low, etc)
“Why did the ball do that?” (club face, path, contact, etc)
“What did I do to make that happen?”
That last question is where you can start to understand the moves you need to make to hit the shot you want. This type of detailed practice will help to improve your game at a much faster pace and put you closer to achieving your goals!
Good Luck and Play Well!
