25 Steps to Better Golf

  1. If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a younger age.
  2. The game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.
  3. Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.
  4. When you look up, causing an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.
  5. Any change works for a maximum of three holes-or at a minimum of not at all.
  6. No matter how bad you are playing, it is always possible to play worse.
  7. Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing.
  8. When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls.
  9. If you’re afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up, or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
  10. The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing.
  11. The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all of your many other errors.
  12. If it ain’t broke, try changing your grip.
  13. Golfers who claim they don’t cheat, also lie.
  14. Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.
  15. A golf match is a test of your skill against your opponent’s luck.
  16. It’s surprisingly easy to hole a 50-foot putt when you already lie eight.
  17. Counting on your opponent to inform you when he breaks a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his own haircut.
  18. Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.
  19. It’s not a gimme if you’re still away.
  20. The shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree.
  21. There are only two kinds of bounces: unfair and lucky, and you have no control over either.
  22. You can hit a two-acre fairway 10 percent of the time, and a two-inch branch 90 percent of the time.
  23. Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe.
  24. To calculate the speed of a player’s downswing, multiply the speed of his backswing by his handicap. Example: backswing 20 mph, handicap 15, downswing 600 mph.
  25. There are only two things you can learn by stopping your backswing at the top and checking the position of your hands: how many hands you have, and which one is wearing the glove.
