Use GPS (golf professional services) to get direction with your game
The great Yogi Berra once said, “if you don’t know where you are going, you might end up someplace else.” This is where the majority of the golfing population is going, someplace else. You need directions to get to your destination if you are taking a road trip. You need direction with your golf improvement.
I see and hear players working on their game every day on the range and practice green with some idea or tip that they heard or saw that has nothing to do with what the root cause of their problem is. You wouldn’t take medication for a sickness you do not have, then why would you work on your game with motions or concepts that are not your issue? Kind of a head scratcher to me.
If you are sick, you go to the doctor. If your game is sick, go to a PGA Professional. I have very important news for you…YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO IT ALONE! The proper way to work on your game is go for a check-up. Find out what’s wrong, how bad is it, and how you can fix it. Professional golfers have coaches, you should too.
