How to Divide Up Your Practice Time!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

One of the major mistakes that golfers make is how they spend their time practicing golf.

If you are one of those people who bang 2-3 buckets per day but have been lazy to hit putts on the putting green, watch out, someone’s gonna take your money.

Here’s a simple guideline on how you should divide up your practice time:

50% – Mix of iron and woods.  These are mostly full shots.

50% – Shortgame consisting of putting, chipping, and chipping.

If you don’t have access to a putting green, you can still do short game on the driving range.  Take your sand or lob wedge and hit to different “short” targets around 30 to 75 yards.  Believe me, this will do wonders for your pitching game.
