Practicing your golf game on the driving Range this is something that many people Are familiar with a lot of people want To do more of and a lot of people don't Know exactly how to make the most of Their time on the Range so today we'll Be going over three very helpful tips That will help you make that time spent On the Range the most effective that it Can be hey everybody I'm George Conley From scratch golf tips and before we get Into the three tips just wanted to Remind you it would be greatly Appreciated if you like this video and If you want to see more and more content In the future feel free to subscribe to The scratch golf tips YouTube channel Now write into tip number one this is Something that's very simple and you may Be thinking well that's odd I think That's fairly obvious but when you look Back at the practice you've done on the Driving range it may not be as apparent As you think it is I'm talking about Choosing a very specific Target when You're on the driving range hitting full Swing shots now whenever you're on the Golf course you're looking at a pin that Is a very specific Target and when You're not aiming directly at the pin You're aiming at a tree or you're aiming Off of a bunker on The Fairway they're Always a very particular areas on the Golf course that you're focused on

However when you go to a driving range It's usually just a bunch of open grass You might see six different colored Flags and you're just kind of aiming to Hit it straight but what really is Straight because you don't have a Particular Target so take a very Particular area you know look exactly at One of the flags in the distance and be Sure that you can align yourself to that Flag and hit balls directly at that flag Because that's going to allow you to More constructively criticize how you're Shooting at that flag if you're saying Oh I'm gonna hit it pretty straight and Then you hit it five yards to the right In your mind that might look pretty Straight and you'll think that's a good Shot when in reality that's not the best Shot so when you're saying I'm going to Aim it at that blue flag you can align Your body directly at that blue flag and Then if you hit a five yards right you Can look back objectively and say okay I Was a little bit right of that so Although it sounds simple it's not Always practice parameters so be sure to Align focus and shot shape towards a Particular aspect or object on that Driving range if you don't have Flags You can look at a specific area maybe There's a bunker there you can also look In the distance if there are any trees Any other features you just need

Something that you can hone in on Repeatedly so that you can allow Yourself to criticize your shots next Let's talk about the shots that we'll be Practicing now I speak from experience When I say I like to go to the driving Range and hit the shots that I like to Hit the shots that I feel comfortable Hitting I know that I like my 8 9 and 7 Iron those are those are that's my Wheelhouse so I like to go to the range And hit a bunch of those golf shots Because that's what I do well but when You look back at it objectively that's Not really the most effective thing to Be doing when in reality my three four And five irons I don't like to hit them Because I'm not very good at hitting Them but that's what you should be doing On the Range so to sum up this point we Should be hitting shots that we're not Comfortable with I know that that's not Necessarily the most fun approach to the Driving range it's not going to make for An hour of you know really enjoyable Golf but if we're looking to improve the Game it obviously makes sense to work Much more on the aspects of our game That really need Improvement it's the Same concept that goes forward with Chipping and putting and any other Aspect of our practice we like to do What we like to do and I again like I Said my long irons I'm not comfortable

With so I'd often shy away from them but I really need to put the time in and Focus and have deliberate practice with Those clubs in order to make them better And in turn make my golf game more Rounded and once again in turn shoot Lower scores with that being said don't Completely abandon the other parts of Your game just understand and make a Game plan like I said my short irons I'm Solid with so I'll still hit a few of Them you don't want them to get rusty But you need to be experimental and you Need to touch all aspects of your game While having a heavy weight on the Aspects of your game game that you are Not comfortable with also important to Understand what parts of it you are not Comfortable with so like I said with my Long irons this is just an example for Me you can apply this to whatever part Of your game needs work with my long Irons I was fairly comfortable hitting a Low fade so I can hit them all right if I'm hitting a low fade so I don't work On that as much when I'm working on Those long irons if I want to hit a high Fade or even a high draw those are shots That have a much more difficult time With so I'll spend more time really Focusing on that aspect of my game I Will film my swing I'll utilize drills I'll have other people look at my swing Whatever you can do to really make that

Time important because that's where the Time needs to be spent and now my final Tip is where it does get a little bit More fun and that is getting creative With your shot selection on the driving Range many people will hit all different Kinds of shots on the golf course you Have to hit under trees you have to hit Over water you have to hit from downhill Lies uphill lies there's a bunch of of Different shots you have to hit yet most Of us go to the range and we hit eight Stock pitching wedges eight stock nine Irons you're just hitting these stock Shots and you only hit them when you're In the Fairway on a clean line but we Really do need to experiment with trying To hook a five iron around the trees Trying to slice a seven iron high around A tree there's a bunch of different Things that we have to do on the golf Course that we're not comfortable with Because there's no familiarity with it Through practice it is worth noting that You shouldn't be spending all day trying To hook your five iron because maybe That's a shot you'll hit once or twice On the golf course but just touching on Those shots and getting creative and Just visualizing hey this let's pretend That this red flag up front is a tree And I'm aiming towards the blue flag in The back how can I hook a ball around That how can I slice the ball around

That and just play with it play with how How closed or open your Club faces play With your stance just get comfortable Shape keeping shots hitting high low Left right all these different shots That you may need spend a little bit of Time getting more acquainted with them And figuring out how you can attack them When those uncomfortable situations Approach you on the golf course now Those are just three of the many many Things that we can do on the practice Range that can really improve our Golf And more importantly make us more Confident on the golf course because a Lot of what the practice that we do on The driving range it's not making the Perfect Adam scott-like golf swing it's Becoming more familiar with how you play Golf and if you can really understand How you play golf you can navigate your Way around a golf course without getting Over Technical and that is a huge way to Lower your scores and in my opinion have A lot more fun on the golf course but This is a very individualized aspect of Golf how people like to practice what Works for them what doesn't work for Them it's different for every golfer so I'd love to hear some discourse in the Comment section below how you have Really benefited from effective practice And what you've done what drills have You worked on what mentality have you
