2022 New Year's Resolutions
I once made a resolution not to make any more resolutions, but given the weather and time of year, it is a good time to reflect on your golf game of the past and how we would like it to be different in 2022. Here is some food for thought on how you can improve your golf game once the weather breaks.
1. Work on your flexibility | As we age, we lose both our strength and flexibility. You may never get the strength you once had back, but you can always remain flexible with a little work.
2. Watch golf on television | Pay attention to the decision-making that goes on between caddy and player. How a player manages his or her way around the course will most likely determine who will win the golf tournament. Course management was Ben Hogan’s greatest strength. Always select a target that will leave you with the easiest shot possible.
3. Learn the Rules | Read about unplayable lies, how to deal with penalty areas (formerly known as hazards) and why you sometimes get one club-length of relief instead of two. The Rules can often get you out of more trouble than your golf clubs.

4. Check your equipment (especially grips) | Do you need new grips? When was the last time you had your clubs regripped? Be honest. Fresh grips mean that you won’t have to hold on to the club so tightly. Tense muscles inhibit motion. If you do need new grips, wait until just before the season starts to have them replaced. No need to have them done now and have them just sit around and dry out.

5. Work on your short game | Sixty percent of the shots that you take are within 50 yards of the green. For every hour that you practice your full swing, you should practice your short game for two hours. Make the commitment.

6. Swing with a better tempo | Slow can be overdone, but smooth can never be emphasized enough. Think of it as smooooooth (more than two “o's”). As Bobby Jones once said, “A smooth takeaway and a leisurely start down will avoid a lot of trouble.”

7. Practice your putting at least 15 minutes before your round | Three putts will cause your score to add up quickly. The best putter on the PGA Tour averaged 27.7 putts per round, the worst putter on tour averaged 30.06 putts per round. Have you ever counted how many putts you take each time you play? FYI, Tour putting averages also show that from 7 feet, pros make 50% of their putts. From 10 feet it drops to 38%. Still impressive.

8. Review Golf Etiquette/Local Rules | If you understand golf etiquette and can play at a brisk pace, you will never have a problem finding people to play with, regardless of your playing proficiency.

9. Become a longer and more consistent ball striker | Learn to use the bigger muscles of your legs and torso from the ground up. Otherwise, you will be forced to use effort to make the ball go far.

10. Consider taking a lesson | What will take you months to figure out on your own, your PGA Professional can identify within a few minutes. We can help you find your swing, mental approach, answer all your golf questions, and make the game fun for years to come.
