We wish you a happy and peaceful New Year both on and off the course.
The new year is a great time to set goals in all areas of your life. If you need some inspiration on the golf front, we put together a list of resolutions (in no particular order) that may help improve your golf game in 2023.
Play More Golf
You don’t need to play 18 holes every time you play. Try squeezing in nine holes here and there when you’re in a time crunch. You’ll get your golf fix and be able to play more without spending half the day on the course.
Go on a Golf Adventure
Plan a get-away golf weekend with friends or family or just play a course you’ve always wanted to play but haven’t yet. It’ll be fun no matter how you play!
Take More Lessons
Break bad habits that you have formed over the years by taking a lesson with a golf professional. You’ll be amazed at how much you can improve your game with simple fixes that you might not see.
Work on Your Fundamentals
Take a few minutes during practice to work on your golf grip, stance and posture. These fundamentals are important to your game, but many people don’t pay attention to them, and their swing starts to suffer. Perfect these and you’ll be more consistent when you play.
Practice Your Putting
In general, the number of putts a golfer takes during a round will make up approximately 40% of their total score. Most golfers don’t spend enough time practicing their putting, which doesn’t make much sense, since they use the putter more than any other club during a round. Prioritize your short game with putting practice every week and watch your scores improve!
Try to ditch the cart and walk more often. You can either carry your clubs or use a push-pull cart. Walking not only helps you get more exercise, it keeps you loose, it means you’ll always have the right clubs with you and it allows you to interact more with your playing partners during the round.
Have More Fun
Improving your game is a great goal for the year, but if you always get caught up on your score and having the perfect round, you’re not going to have much fun. Make sure to enjoy the little things that you love about golfing every time you play. The more fun you have, the better you’ll probably play!
