Practice Frequently, Not Longer

World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational - Round TwoPractice makes perfect, right? Well, not if you’re doing it wrong.

To improve your golf game, it’s important to take time to work on problem areas, master what you’re already good at and retain what you’ve learned. But, it’s how you go about your practice – in this case the duration and frequency – that can make the difference.

While it may make sense that the longer you practice, the better you’ll be, that’s not always the case. In fact, it’s much more beneficial to have shorter, more frequent practice sessions, than fewer, longer ones.

Shorter practice times allow you to be more deliberate and mindful in your actions. Whereas, with a long session on the range, you run the risk of mindlessly swinging the club, and loosing focus on the new skill you’re trying to master.

So, shoot for frequent practices, but keep them short and to the point. A practice session of 30 minutes or less, 4 or 5 times a week, is ideal.
