Tips for newer players and players looking to improve:
Practice on an open field, or any where but a course. You get more reps in less time. Its all about the OTR, opportunity to respond. You’ll get more on in an open field then at a course. Then maybe Morley field wouldn’t be so busy!!!
Secondly, If you want to get better, compete. Playing in a competitive environment will improve your game faster then your casual rounds with your buddies you beat all the time. You will see things you might have not seen before, and SEEING IS BELIEVING!
Also, Believe in your self. Self Confidence is priceless.
