I know it is probably the last thing you want to do, but if you want to improve your golf game you need to Practice Your Weaknesses. Certainly it’s much more fun to go to the range and hit your favorite shots. You know, the ones you are really good at? However, if you really want to lower your golf scores than you need to strengthen the areas of your game where you lose most of your strokes.
So which shots cause you the most problems? Is it your chipping, pitching, putting or your drives? When you head to the practice area, focus most of your practice time on the areas you want to improve.
Most importantly, consider taking a lesson from a PGA Pro. They will help you maximize your practice time.
