You gotta try this if you are a serious, competitive golfer:
When you arrive at a new golf course to prepare for a golf tournament....walk the course BACKWARDS! WHAT????? Try this....
(let's day #18 is a Par 4....)
Start at the 18th green. Look down the fairway, imagining where you would like your ball to be for your approach into the green. Then walk back to that spot. Now, imagine how you would strike your tee shot in order to reach this spot. Take notes...use your rangefinder to shoot distances...etc., etc.
I believe a fella by the name of Hogan used to do this....pretty cool!
You will gain a completely different perspective of the golf course by following this routine. You may get a few funny looks from other competitors as you walk the course...backwards...but, trust me...it's pretty neat!
Anyone out there do this...have tried it? If so...would very much like to learn your thoughts on this routine and how it has helped you properly prepare for a competition.
This is a good one...hope you try it!
