Difference Between Breaking 80 and Breaking 90 - Where Can We Slash Strokes?

Difference Between Breaking 80 and Breaking 90 - Where Can We Slash Strokes?
the Malaysia massive joined me at else club the Saru Coast on the valley course we're going to look at the

difference

between an 80 golfer and a 90 golfer over nine holes j-mac has morphed into a player who scores between 87 and 93 on the Reg I generally score between mid 70s and low 80s that's a clear 10 stroke

difference

so

where

does the

difference

come from this is by no means scientific but on the golf course in the moment there is no science there is feel estimation commitments emotions and confidence we can take the easy route and say someone sucks or someone is born with a swing or just plays better than another guy that's not my way of thinking I believe anyone can improve their score by 5 shots in quick time and have more fun in a heartbeat that's why I try provide some insights maybe you take one idea away from the video and it changes your outlook you change your game that's fine comparing ourselves to the pros is a great way to screwing up our games we can all strive to nip and tuck a few

strokes

off our scores by just working on our inner game our encore strategy suited to our game our own emotional management and by turning the focus on to having some fun enough of that here's the golf j-mac played the copper tees at 3,300 yards while I played the silver at close to 3,500 on the 10th hole of the Owls Club valley course were going way uphill are we ever reaching listen to do I even want to be in the greenside bunker zone - no sir after...

navigating the tee shot like a straight cold bouse j-mac decided to lay it up to the way of the player distance a full wedge into the green I took a different route and thought I'd test out the idea of closer to the green is better I wanted to do the bow smooth and leave myself a 58 degree into the hole but in the name of science I put myself at an awkward 45 yards to a raised green okay so we're looking at a 78 audio okay uphill we're gonna say it's 85 85 to the front to the back we playing to 110 something okay so we're gonna say the pin playing about 90 issue and you don't want to smash the 58 in lose control so you're gonna do a little Jay mech player smugly tells us he's going over the pin onto the back of the green he's not screwing around with the front pin then he does it got a hater guy like that so I'm closer to the hole but the question is could I get the ball closer to the front side pin on a raised green with a lob wedge from 95 yards away or from 45 yards away I would bet my left toenail that the 95 yard shot would be better I don't like partial shots and on to a raised green it's just silly guten tag okay Holle 11 is a dream hole with a lovely view it's not an easy approach though we both hit the fairway with a delightful look at the green Jay Mac knows the bailout is right so he hit it toward they're expecting a draw but not unhappy with a straight shot he doesn't want to touch the wet stuff on the...

left I take the same course of action as j-bone and end up in a similar position j-mac hits a delightful little shot here using some imagination by killing the speed into the fringe the ball has to go downhill downgrain to the water bounce level gameplay for someone shooting AC we want to get up and down in two shots as often as we can these shots take skill and imagination this sounds difficult but that skill and imagination can be learned easily with practice mindful practice plus experience equals skill and imagination every time we've played the first two holes almost identically and similarly it's coming down to the game inside 190 shooter can rarely get away with hitting it near the green and then getting up and down in three shots but three shots must be the maximum short par fours are really

where

the 90 boys can catch up a few

strokes

j-mac knows this and that little confidence boost of playing a short hole is powerful I hit a safe shot to set up a wedge easy peasy lemon squeezy you don't need to smash a big Club to be in play as jamek shows us by hitting a hybrid down the cart path

where

the ball settles almost pin high to the right when hitting approaches we all should take note of

where

the pin is and how much green we have in front of and behind the pin I went pin hunting here because I didn't want to go into the bunker he doesn't go at the pin because there's no green behind the pin on that line center of the green boom this guy is such...

a player sometimes j-mac has made me quite proud of his improvement in putting the two putts are coming more and more and the me trembles are almost guineas I really hit a delightful shot yeah but just miscalculated a little no harm no foul no one's going to prison so you just get your mind if you ain't I don't don't go in the bunker 6-iron j-mac lets us know he wants to start this at the bunker on the right because he feels he is a Baus from the sand after a bunker sessions we can't disagree with the man so he executes I guess here is a good example of what separates one handicap level from another missing your comfortable areas I landed in a bunker granted not an easy shot but I love bunkers j-mac is in a position I would hope to never be in I would call that a short siding above the green over a bunker onto a downslope if he goes at the pin he has a danger of going into the water he has to come to the right a little to just get it on the green nothing is in his favor here so let's get it on the green with the highest percentage shot then try make a putt in retrospect the best miss here is long on the back of the green or just short of the hole to leave an easy triple putt up the fairway onto the green avoiding the short side is one more key to lowering your score find the most favorable spot to be I counted anything else off the tee here because we have no idea what's up there it looks like a little stream Jace's all hits a shocker off the...
toe of the club but we're dry we're in play that's all that counts the next shot could be the purest one ever and he hits a pure one boom like a boss trust the process trust yourself the big problems when trying to break 80 come when you do not commit 100% to a line or a club or a distance these doubts cause these types of gaffes having one or two of these per round if they're bad enough can destroy a card we need to recover from them and trust that we have the game to finish the hole in style there is no room to get down on ourselves another sort of 80 yard and 90 out of shot okay the clearing between these two bunkers and the mcbowser Lee hits another pure one in the center mr. fender you see you chip away at the hole just grinding it out until it's in the hole I left myself too much work here for my liking but welcome back to the pure factory remember a 90 golfer needs to make 18 bogeys for a 90 so every hole bogie is the new part j-mac is near the green in his new regulation while I'm also around the green in 3 shots my regulation we both played a couple of poufy shots - let's get it up and down like the way of the player tells us be lethal around the Greens for quick wins now the big

difference

here came from J max tee shot the doubts and fears of the water and the tight fairway meant he made a pouf ease off the toe of the club there's no other explanation than doubt because he smashed the hybrid every other hole see there's no...
science or data here thoughts and doubts and confidence no mechanics just thoughts becoming swings I didn't record that one smash that one straight toward the far bank away with the gables found himself a secret weapon he's got a ping 6-iron he bought from a junk shop it's cavity backed and much more forgiving than his Calloway epics clubs I like this type of approach throw in the bag what you love discard what you don't actively love every club you look down at must fill you with pleasure anything less and it's time to go now some may say this isn't a tack shot I wasn't going to miss the green long here because there's a massive drop-off there I prefer to play to what I can see and just get it on the middle what about get it on the green nice touch three putts are the killers practice enough to eliminate these and instantly you can reduce a ton of shots they are more prevalent as the scores get higher in golf just eliminating them will

slash

your score and it's the easiest thing to do it's all along the ground you don't need brute power just practice I think he's going to try the old high handicapper flop shot oh yes perfectly executed right in the teeth straight into the bank pops up onto the green and rolls to six feet what a player here's

where

every golfer loses

strokes

lack of commitment this factor alone will revolutionize your golf if you can commit to a golf shot 100% regardless you will play better golf we have...
to ignore the doubt and say I'll screw it if it's a bad plan it's a bad plan but I'm going to commit to it 100% I mean the worst thing that can happen is a lost ball hey if you're worried about losing balls play cheaper balls eventually you'll find a plan you can commit to and in turn you'll start improving the plans but start by committing to anything and everything you decide on the course now it's very easy to jump on the boat it's easy for you because of insert excuse but players regardless of distance or skill discrepancies we can all do better I hid my iron too near the green enough confidence my ability to get it up and down sure some people may need to lay it up but why don't we instead of getting down about distance and skill of others play to our strengths you that's a new school let's say you also had this shot yes of course I have the advantage to hit an iron green side maybe you have a great 50 yard pitch may be a great 100 yard shot you could very well lay it up there and try to get a close for a chance at a four longer distance is always preferable but the promotion of mythical distance is harmful because some people just cannot add a magical 60 yards to their shots so the next best is to manage our games according to what we can do not feel bitter and upset about what we can't this is the tactic of modern marketers make you feel bad for what you cannot do thereby turning your focus inward toward your...
inability rather than outwardly to your ability forget that noise revolution is in the air use your game to play better more fun golf what's the

difference

between an 80 and 90 score and golfer about 10 shots and you know what I hope you can find a way to

slash

those shots off your score because it's like that idea start from the hole work backwards and when you get stuck pay a reputable pro to show you but j-mac or you player could shoot 120 and I wouldn't even mind if you're a solid cat and a joy to play golf with that's what counts no one sucks at golf they're just at their particular part of the journey it's a never-ending journey with no end points play your best game with what you can do and be comfortable with it improve what you can't do so well away from the course have fun rockers have fun
