Tips: "Develop a Game Plan"
To improve your game, start by evaluating all aspects of your game before making a change. Chart your statistics for five rounds of golf to see which parts of your game need the most work. After charting your rounds set some specific goals with your teaching professional to improve the weakest areas of your game.
