U can see how they worked during competition time during the warm up.

Just wondering what are the difficulties in the game the pros face as opposed to weekend golfers.
I believe their consistancy is better compared to most of us. So what do they work on?
Anything that pros do during training that we can adopt in our own practises

What we see on TV is the easy part I think. Come early putt, range putt play. Im wondering abt daily regimes n workouts.
Tiger has his tiger day workout. Super focused n dedicated. Even meals r monitored
Wonder if our aspiring pros r following the model?
I realise good stamina helps. 2.4 in 10min kind. A typical 18hole plus the hot sun even in a buggy cn kill. So good stamina is one way to help focus down the stretch especially the last 9 holes.
So just wondering that based on my cow sense I think this way. If there r more structured regimes that the pros do daily. Dat they can share just for a glimpse of what its like

Whatever line you are in you have a daily routine...and if you really want to get ahead in your job, you have to work hard and work smart.
if you are a policeman, you need to go to police academy, then when you graduate, you get posted. of course you have to do your routine work and train yourself physically to stay in shape. apart from that you got to go and get tested every few months for your marksmanship, physical fitness, get briefed on the latest criminal activity and upgrade yourself in order to keep abreast and be in line for promotion.
now for a playing professional, there are different approach, some hit 80 balls a day, spent the rest of the day playing for money and then drink with their buddies. this used to be the lifestyle of pros in the 80s. the modern game is very different.
pros spent more time at the gym than the range and the daily routine could involve working on different parts of the game. and playing on the golf course may not be the only way to improve one's game.
i have know Ariya and Moriya since they were 12 and 13. they would wake up at 5.30 am everyday and swim from 6 to 8 pm, then after breakfast at 9 am, they would be pack off to the golf course to walk and play 18 holes. from 2 to 7, they have to see 3 different coaches, one for driver, one of irons and one for short game. any time they have left is spent on recovering from the physical exertion for the day. they are lucky that even at their age, Siam Cement have always picked up the tab. their dad gave up his job to look after them full time.
now both top their respective Q school (LET and LPGA) and now its pay back time. some will think that they should be in school instead of making a living playing golf. but if you are a thai, you will see it differently. when thai parents sit down, they talk about golf achievements. when singapore parents sit down, they talk about school grades....
DWDL, they have to think of a lot of things - family and friends expectations. putting food on the table, trying to make the cut and trying to make enough money to cover expenses. life as a pro is tough, play well and win, you get television coverage. play bad and you are just a statistic on tour.
weekend golfers can bitch about their OB and still go back to their day job.....the pro would have lost his airfare, accommodation, caddies fee, entrance fee and expenses.
so for anyone to go out week after week to compete at the highest level, its not longer just the swing, its the state of mind and the preparation that they are prepared to put in and the confidence they have to when the tournament starts on thursday.
Hope it helps.....DGman
