Furyk is my favorite golfer to use as an example of being successful without having a perfect golf swing, and of showcasing one of my favorite topics: the value of having an effective golf swing vs. an efficient golf swing.
A quality practice should combine elements of both mechanics to improve efficiency, and target focus to improve effectiveness. Plus a little fun. Try these range challenge games if you really want to improve your practice time and your scores on the golf course.
When you practice to learn about or refine your mechanics your focus should be internal. Not on the results. Your goal is to learn about your swing by refining your internal feedback and awareness abilities. What happens to the ball after you hit it, and whether it goes at a target or not, is simply data that can help you diagnose and interpret your swing better.
If you can’t feel something, you can’t change it. To change your swing, you must first develop an awareness of your swing around the aspect you wish to change.
The secret to effective practice is working in 5-ball sets, rotating through three different but related technique areas. Watch the video to see what I mean.
