The majority of good decisions on the golf course are based on information.
Golf is a game of information. The person who has more, and knows what to do with it, lowers their scores. This is one of the core principles of Intelligent Improvement.
I came across this video by Dennis Sales at Button Hole in Providence, Rhode Island.
The video delivers a great example of how having more information helps you make better decisions.
You’ll make better decisions both on the golf course and at the practice tee.
Dennis shows how to use the information you have about your game, your tendencies, and your capabilities.
The more you know, the better you get. The difficulty is know WHERE to look for places to improve. Dennis discusses a good place in this short 5 minute video:
Even if you aren’t keeping meticulous statistics, by being more aware of your tendencies, and capabilities, you are going to be able to make better decisions.
Better decisions will put you in better spots on the golf course more often, which ultimately leads to lower scores.
What tips do you have to help players gather more information and make better decisions?
