Having more fun and stepping out of your comfort zone

If you’d like to experience something different with your golf game you might like to try some of the following;

  • Hit a five iron like it’s your wedge ( high and soft landing shot that only flies about 110 metres or so)
  • Hit the ball the maximum distance with each club. Can you hit you 9 iron as far as your 5 iron?
  • Hit the ball low with each club. Can you hit the ball a few metres above the ground without thinning the shot?
  • Take a full swing and attempt to hit the ball only a few metres. This one is difficult but possible
  • Hit a huge hook shot with each club
  • Hit a massive slice with each club (some golfers don’t have much trouble with this one 🙂 )
  • Hit shots with your opposite hand (play left handed if you’re right handed)
  • Play a round of golf with one club only (a 6 iron?)

Learning to do this can only help your golf game. You’ll learn better club control and develop better shot making skills. This process should be a fun one and will allow you to break any bad habits and any limiting beliefs that you may have. Not a bad thing.

Good golfing,

Cameron

    When I was first learning to play, I finished a horrible front nine, but was at least hitting decent wedges. I decided to play the entire back nine with my pitching wedge, even for putting. I found some creative ways to get incredible distance out of my wedge off the tee and actually made some nice putts. I came in with a 45 on the back. I’ve been meaning to play another round with just one club, but haven’t done so. I’ll try out some of your other suggestions too.

    Playing with one club is a great idea.

    I haven’t done it for a while, but last time I did I think I scored around 77 with a six iron. Definitely makes you improvise and learn different shots.

    Will try it again soon.
