Don’t ever think just because you can strike a ball well on the range that you can do it on the course!
Be prepared for the shock of all those beautiful soaring strikes, that perfect sound when the club hits the ball square vanishing into thin air.
The fact you have a bucket of 50 balls and a forgiving mat to hit off can give you the illusion of being a golfer!!
When I first started learning golf that was one of the hardest things to accept – the range to course adjustment. What I have learned (and as the Range Queen at our home course I think I am qualified to comment!) is on the course you have to let go – relax and not think anymore than one swing thought. Just hope you have practised enough on the range that there is some muscle memory subconsciously coming into play!
