Biggest “Practice Secret” holding you back from drastically lower scores

Why can’t you breakthrough the scoring plateau you’ve been stuck at year after year? There’s one key shift to make in your practice (based on research) that unlocks your ability to learn skills that show up under pressure.

Performance during practice does not indicate the amount of learning

The reality is errors and challenge during practice creates learning that lasts. Practice is all about creating skills that last so when you step out onto the golf course, however most of us practice in a way that optimizes our learning on the RANGE instead of the COURSE.

If you want to start optimizing your practice you need to see difficulty and challenge as desirable.

This is just one of the core concepts of better practice that you need to know if you want to make sure you’re not wasting time practicing and working on actions that translate to better skills on the course.

If you want to get an overview of these important practice secrets and be guided through different games and drills to explore the concepts check out our brand new training program Practice Secrets.
