WHY PRACTICE? Simple. You can’t get better without it. Mental practice, ball striking practice, short game practice, physical training practice… they all produce the results you are looking for, but first you have to do them.
WHERE TO PRACTICE? You can practice any where. You don’t need to hit hundreds of balls to practice. Make slow motion swings and take time to walk yourself through your swing. Pay particular attention to the part of your swing where you and your instructor are focusing. Fine tune that main part and continue with slow motion swings. Yes, it’s important to hit balls at the practice range as well. However, when at the practice range, make slow motion rehearsal swings before you actually make the full swing. The rehearsal swings will encourage better full swings when the ball actually gets in the way.
