Consistently Inconsistent

If you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it.

Over the years of teaching and coaching I have observed that many players become stuck in a consistent cycle of, well…inconsistency. The interesting part of that is your consistency can improve, however you must be willing to make some changes. A great quote comes to mind, “If you always do what you always did, you will get what you always got.” - Albert Einstein

All players have the desire to shoot lower scores and become more consistent. But do you have the discipline to change your ways? My recommendation: start small, start today!

First, change the process. Instead of going to the practice area to hit balls, give your game the time and attention it deserves. Determine what area of your game needs the most improvement. When you track your on-course performance, it gives you valuable insight on your strengths and weaknesses. If you don’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Once that area is defined, create a development plan for that area of your game and stick to it.

Make sure to include the basics for that area, including the set-up, ball position, and club selection. Routine maintenance of the foundation of your swing is essential. Define what you are trying to accomplish in that particular practice session and set a goal to achieve before you finish the session. Continue working on whatever task/shot you are trying to improve, and your score will improve. This allows you to practice with a purpose. The most important thing is to enjoy the process. The process will lead you to the outcome you desire.
