It's not about how good your golf swing looks
Some skillful players know how to get the ball in the hole and score. Others have what appears to be a great golf swing but cannot score, while still others have a combination of both a great-looking swing and the know-how to go low.
Which one are you?
Take a look at the Champions and you'll see countless variations of swings - most are not "pretty" but these players have found a way to get it in the hole. And what is the objective of the game? To get the ball in the hole with the fewest number of strokes.
Ben Hogan was asked who he thought had the best swing he had ever seen and he answered, "A driving range pro over at..."
Some players are cursed with a beautiful swing – on the driving range but can never take it to the course. Others are blessed with the ability to score with swings that look very unorthodox like Jim Furyk.
Do you need to work on your mechanics?
When the bell rings you've got to find a way to score. When playing golf don't be concerned about "how" it looks, the scorecard doesn't know any better, but rather what you need to do to get this little white ball in the hole in the fewest strokes possible
Here are a couple of suggestions to help you improve your scoring.
1. Get out on the course and play two balls. Play the worst ball on every shot and you'll find a way to score.
2. Play the forward tees. If this does not give you a different view then nothing will.
