Golf is a Game of Skills

Playing consistent golf is more then just trying to develop a good looking golf swing.  Golf as a whole, requires individual skills sets in the grand scheme of things.  Golf as the game, can easily be broken down into these categories:

In each of these categories golfers have various skill levels.  The key to improving your scores is finding out which skills you need help with.  Retaining the services of a certified golf coach will not only help you figure that out, but will help you improve them.  To often golf lessons focus just on swing mechanics.  They spent to much time trying to build the most picture perfect swing on video.  Clearly if you have been following golf since it’s creation, you would see that no two touring professionals have ever swung the same.  They have developed certain essential skills in their swing to control the moment of impact, which in return, controls the flight of the golf ball.

In the following blogs I’ll be discussing these categories more and sharing some insights that will help you develop skills necessary to become skillful in those categories.  You may not need to read or even follow all of them but I’m very certain that you do need help in a some categories.
