How to Become a Consistent Golfer
Why is it so hard to become a “consistent golfer” and what does being a consistent golfer mean anyway? From our experience, when a golfer aspires to be “consistent” he or she wants to reduce the inevitable variability from the game of golf as well as achieve a

consistent golf

score. That way, the golfer can know what areas to develop and carry out a pragmatic approach to work on golf game weaknesses while gradually reducing golf scores and handicaps. But the problem is that most golfers view their game as a whole rather than a series of distinct parts that results in an overall golf score.

To that end, here is a quick framework of golf tips that can help you become a consistent golfer.

1.) Break up your overall golf game into “Sub Games”

To become a consistent golfer, you must first assess what basic golf areas of your game are suffering the most and prioritize those areas. To do so, you should view the game of golf as several distinct, but related “sub games.”

Here is an example framework:

a.) Power Game – Driver, 3-Wood, 5-Wood
b.) Long Iron Game – Hybrid, 3-iron through 5-iron
c.) Mid Iron Game – 6-iron through 9-iron
d.) Pitching Game – Pitching wedge through lob wedge
e.) Bunker Game – fairway and greenside bunkers
f.) Chipping Game – around the green
g.) Putting Game – on the green
The inconsistent golfer typically works on items “a” through “c” only in the above framework. However, 50%+ of most golf scores result from putting proficiency alone and arguably 70% of golf scores result from golf shots 100 yards and in (items “d” through “g”).

If you do nothing else, here is a quick golf tip to lower your golf scores the fastest and aid in your quest to be a consistent golfer: reverse your thinking and practice items “d” through “g” more…a lot more.

2.) Work on the sub-games as you practice

To be a consistent golfer, you should think about breaking up your golf practice routine into the sub-games. Rather than hit 100 golf balls aimlessly for an hour, work on each of the sub-game areas for 5 to 10 minutes each in one golf practice session. Or similar to a weight lifting routine, set aside 30 minutes to work on a “sub-group” for a particular day. For example, you can spend 30 minutes one day on the “greenside” group (chipping, bunkers and putting); 30 minutes+ one day on the “long club” group (power game, long iron game); and 30 minutes+ one day on the “fairway” group (mid-iron and pitching game). If you don’t have time to hit the range several times per week, there are a myriad of drills you can do at home or in the office to at least help ingrain the proper movements to muscle memory.

3.) Assess the sub-games as you play

Finally, to be a

consistent golfer

, you should keep track of how well you played in each of the sub-games as you actually play the game. This is really easy. On your scorecard, simply place a few key golf stat categories, such as power game, mid-iron game, pitching game, putts per hole, etc. You can come up with a simple rating scale and rate your performance per hole in each of these areas. If you get into this type of routine every time you play, you will quickly hone in on the critical things you need to work on to become a consistent golfer and lower your score.
