Improving My Weaknesses as a golfer

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Strengths and Weaknesses Skills/Techniques Strategies/Tactics Fitness Strengths Chipping Putting (Short) Balance Technique Course Management Attacking Play Flexibility Suppleness Weaknesses Driving Long Irons Putting (Long) Defensive Play Mental Stamina Improving My Weaknesses Driving and Long Irons. As a golfer I feel that my driving is the main area of my game that needs the most improvement. I have made this my main weakness, as I am not able to produce consistent shots with my woods off the tee box. I feel that good practice and a result would drastically reduce my score around the course. The area of my driving in which I am struggling with is the positioning of the ball in my stance; this leads to shots with poor trajectory, leading to poor distance. This is also the same problem with my long irons. ...read more.

These shots could decrease my handicap considerably if I was to improve on long distance putts. I feel this problem is due to an inconsistent rhythm in my putting stroke, which can lead to deceleration through the shot and also a crooked swing, leading to an inaccurate direction. As I result I believe I must change my stroke through keeping my arms straighter with the putter, giving more solidity in the stroke. To achieve this I will practice wholly on my putting once a week and twice a week in my games. Defensive Play I have chosen this as one of my weaknesses as I believe I should know how and when to execute defensive play on the course to my advantage. Currently I do not play defensive golf effectively to benefit my score and ability. ...read more.

Conclusion

I believe as I have poor mental stamina my focus and concentration begins to fade as the round proceeds further. Mental stamina can be interrupted through the pressure of the crowd and other environmental factors such as weather and surroundings. To improve, I must focus on the game in hand and filter out all the irrelevant information. This can only be practiced over time in games and competitions, where I will be under the most pressure. To try and improve further I will look into and investigate how other golfers focus. I feel that if this is improved I will be able to complete a round of golf with more constant scores throughout all eighteen holes. I will present my progress in a diary of weaknesses. This will show what I have learnt and how I have applied it to my game. the diary will also say if the change or information has produced a positive result. ...read more.
