At the range you hit 5, 10, or 15 of the exact shot with the same club. On a real golf course you don't get to hit the same club consecutively.
What I try to do is simulate a game on the range.
Pick a course you have played and picture that in your mind.
1st hole is a 350 straight hole.
So your first shot would be your tee shot. Maybe 200.
Then you are going for the green with a 6 iron to the green.
I duff that one and am in the rough.
I then take my lob wedge and chip this on the green.
Then move on to the second hole.
I think this would take any unreal expectations from your game.

You could always just go to a grass range. I think that's the best of both worlds

hi all,

I am sure many of us encountered this problem.

Can play well at range but when at the course, we played like we never practise at all. I know my game is there but somehow I cant bring it to the course. Any reason why? Perhaps some of the bros who have went through this and suceed in overcoming it can shed some light.. Thanks. Sad

I love this discussion. Great input from all.

My new Inner Game workshop goes deep into this subject and can help golfers understand exactly why we can perform in some situations and feel totally lost in others. Then, when we understand the details of why it happens, we look at what to do about it and how to move forward and becomen consistent no matter when and where you are playing.

It all starts on the inside.

I designed the workshop for players like yourself and I think you would really enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks to all the guys for your comments and suggestions.

Summary:
1/ Manage expectations
2/ Practise creatively and objectively
3/ Repeat steps 1 and 2 until it is second nature.

Hope that sums it up.... Very Happy

you can also practice at turf city, cow grass. I do it sometimes, coz I dont like to hit driver with rubber tees

the ground is so soggy that will give you great "feedback" of duffed shots, you have no choice but to improve (i am using the language of muscle blade fans)

This is about as much as I can share without giving it all away.

http://www.golfrepublic.org/t13565-inner-game-workshop

Today I played golf with a guy (who isn't even my student) who was nice enough to post this on our school's facebook page.

"Shot a blistering and clean 38 on the back nine courtesy of 'Guru' Brad Walterhouse's (CPGA) and his "Inner Game" Coaching..fantastic!! Not a single technical or swing comment just all mental/attitude..check his Program out at Heartland Golf!!"

During the round we simply had discussions, I shared some of the basic concepts that the Inner Game workshop revolves around, and gave him insight into my how I manage my own inner game.

He was swinging it great and even though he was scoring way over his head (at one point he made 5 pars in a row) he was able to keep it going all the way to the end.

Golfers, has anyone ever got it going like that for a good stretch of holes?
Played a great 9 or made a bunch of pars in a row, or had a hot streak of any kind. How did it feel? What happened when you realized that you were on a roll?

Let me guess. "This feels uncomfortable, I'm not sure how to handle this, oh well, knowing me it will all come crashing down soon enough, just wait, I'm only one bad shot away and it's bound to happen any time, wait for it, wait for it.
BANG! Bad shot, streak is over. "Back to my normal erratic self, back to the comfort zone."

Sound familliar anyone?

Want to know why that happens and what to do about it? How to make that hot streak the comfort zone.

Inner Game Workshop can help
