A slow game of golf. This problem has already set the teeth on edge, but it has a solution. Here are five simple tips to help you play a golf round in less than two hours.
Hit and then speak
No, you don’t need to run between blows or even walk fast to meet two hours.
It is also not necessary to strike five seconds after you have approached the ball. You just need to get rid of the routine habits that eat up a few minutes of your time and your teammates’ time on each hole.
Multiply that by 18: now the goal to complete the field in 120 minutes looks realistic.
Council number 1. Punch first, then help
Your team-mate ripped off the kick and sent the ball into deep thickets. Don’t run to help find his ball right away.
Perform your strike first, and then join the quest. Perhaps by that time the partner will have found the ball, and if not, you have already completed your shot anyway.
Council number 2. Punch first, then speak
There are players who begin to tell stories or interesting stories before they hit.
All attention is riveted on them, all the golfers are standing around the tee, so it’s time to put your ball down, slowly get the driver and tell jokes. Don’t be afraid to politely tell your teammates, “We hit first, and then we start talking.”
Prepare to strike in advance
Council number 3. Reduce your routine
All golfers have their own routines before hitting. If you need to perform a training swing, then do it, but only one.
It is not at all necessary to prepare for a strike for several minutes. Yes, pre-punch routine is important, but if you can keep it to a minimum, do it out of respect for your teammates and their time.
Council number 4. Get ready to hit
Many players start preparing for a shot only when it is their turn to shoot the ball.
And it is at this moment that they think about which club to take, study the wind, check the distance to the hole, put on a glove, and so on.
Why? You can do all this in advance, while your partner is performing the blow. Your ball is already on the field, you have all the information, so decide in advance which club you will hit and which kick you will perform. When it’s your turn, just walk up to the ball and shoot.
Council number 5. Smart planning
Surely you have come across players who irrationally left their bags or golf carts.
They would putt, then walk towards the bag or kara, and then walk or ride in the opposite direction towards the tee of the next hole. Think about this in advance. Leave the car on the side of the green next to the next tee. Shorten unnecessary distances.
All of these tips will help you make your golf round much faster.
