HOW TO PLAY BELOW 80 IN GOLF - PART1
The title of article sounds like this is more suited to those players who are already scoring in
the 80s. Technically speaking yes, but in reality, what you are about to read apply to both beginners and
seasoned Golfers alike.
While it’s true that beginners (real beginners) may never score in the 80s yet, on the bad days even some of the
professional golfers will score in the high 80s. So how do Golfers prevent this from happening? What you should do
in order not to fall victim of the bad scoring spree?
Here are some tips that might be useful to you in keeping your score lower:
1. Enjoy the game
When you are tense, obviously you’ll get
distracted and the focus is lost. When playing Golf, you should try to enjoy the
game rather than being like inside a pressure-cooker.
2. Do a practice round play (for the tournament)
Normally, most Professional do this prior to the
actual tournament. This is to study the course and formulate some

to tune your swing and activate your muscle memory when it comes to a Golf swing. This
is a good practice that New
Golfers should emulate, when time allow. Being stiff on the first Tee Box is worst
experience you can have.
5. Leave your ego behind
Do not be carried away by the unspoken
challenge you will experience on the first Tee Box. If your Flight mate just
pulled a Driver from his bag, do not follow it if you are not confident enough.
6. Set a target score for the round
For a new Golfer, it is practical to set
a Gross score within in the range from 100 to 130 the round. It would be
disappointing to set a score that you normally do not shoot for a round. Of course for a
Professional Golfer the
maximum expectation should be Par for the round. Having as many Birdies should be the main
