A Game Of Good Misses

Is it true that, when you miss strategically, with luck on your side, one usually cards low scores? Always be grateful for the good moments in life. Strive to become freely reverent!

There is a key point in play here. How well do you know your own game … your tendencies? Consider your driver off the teeing ground. Let us assume that the fairway, out at the end of your shot range, is 100 yards across. If you play a well-struck golf ball to the middle of the fairway, you will accomplish a safety margin or zone of 50 yards on each side of the center of the fairway picture. Pretty good place to be! Always play the current shot to favour the next! Plan ahead!

What if you are a ‘Right Hander’ who tends to ‘Pull or Draw’ (Hook), you might want to aim 25 to 35 yards to the right side of center line. Then your ‘Landing Zone’ is effectively as much as 85 yards. Your chances of keeping your ball ‘In Play’ increases.

To optimize this strategy, you might want to ‘Tee Up Your Golf Ball’ on the left-side of the ‘Teeing Ground’. Let us assume there is a creek all the way down the left fairway. You still aim 35 yards to the right side of center with a good ‘Swing Release’. The angle tactics and margins grow in your favour! Strategize! It is always ‘Tinker Time’. Don’t waste Golf’s moments!

If you are a ‘Right-Hander’ who tends to ‘Push or Fade’ (Slice), the flip-side of the above coin gains validity. Learn to take as much advantage of the total available property you can! The same type of advantage applies to the ‘South-Paw’ but with simply different targets, lines and angles.

One should strive to achieve more room to miss or make ‘Good Misses’ as the title suggests? Your Pre-Shot Routine’ (PSR) and ‘Intermediate Target’ never gets out of vogue! (see ‘The 5 Essential Elements’ … Clubface Aim, Clubhead Path, Clubhead Speed, Sweet Spot & Angle Of Attack) One must learn to visualize and hit ‘One’s Lines and Angles’! Efficiently direct and release your energy based on your ‘5 Essential Elements’.
