Top golfer pros achieve remarkable performance not only because they are blessed with natural talents, but they pay more attention to little things on course.

One of the strategies of dropping your handicap and taking your game to the next level is by watching how golfer pros deal with these nuanced stuff.

The variations of golf swings can even be an indication of whether the player is an amateur or not. There is a stark contrast between how easy the pros make the game seem and how struggling the Amateur make it look.

1. CORRECT GOLF SETUP

Golf pros never overly bend their knees, which otherwise an Amateur golfer usually does. An excessively bending of knees leads to flattened hips and straightened spines, which makes it hard for your top half to make good contact with the ball, resulting in topping the ball and weak shot with reduced distance and accuracy. So straighten those knees and maintain the forward tilt upper body during your setup and golf swing.

Many amateur golfers also have an excessive strong grip, sitting so far under the club, which leads to a situation where the club face is excessively delofted and pointing more to the left(right-handed player), making it challenging to hit high, soft shots. This problem is particularly salient when Amateurs are playing a driver or fairway wood.

2. EFFECTIVE WARMING UP AND PURPOSEFUL GOLF PRACTISE

A golfer pro never easily waste a single shot and always maintains composure and confidence even when they hit poor shots. The secret is that golfer pros warm up effectively before starting the game. There is a perpetuated myth that the more you hit the ball during practice, the more you’ll hit perfect shots. But many amateur still slice 20 yards in their first drive despite significant amount of hitting practice. However, professional golfers go through the routine like it’s actual course in warming up. They make quality swings and make each shot intentional to match the routine they planned. A strategic swing and shot practice also allows players to develop better distance control of each type of club. So don’t just stand there and hit the balls. Make deliberate routine, hit quality and purposeful shot, ensure no swing is wasted and make effective practice that is truly constructive to your game.

3. GREAT GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT

Golf pros are very good at course management and mapping out of every shot like a architect planning a house. When it comes to plotting their route, the best players knows well exactly where they should land the ball and cannot hit the ball. They strictly adhere to their plotted routine and make perfect shots, leaving themselves yardages to the green that they find most comfortable with. Amateurs many times believe they should hit as long as they can with the club that carry longer distances like wood. However, this many times put them in a very uncomfortable place in the end.

 4. HIT TONS OF GOLF WEDGE SHOTS DURING PRACTISE

While amateur players are keen on range and they are used to hitting lots of 7-irons and a few drivers. Golfing pros instead hit tons of wedges and drivers. Wedges are very suitable for drill purpose because they are relatively easy to hit. Players are making a precise, clean, and solid contact with the golf ball while implementing the feel they like, which ramps up confidence before the game. Wedges are clubs that help you score lower, and the ones you really need to knock to ball closer to your target, more often than not.
