Okay . . . so everyone knows the saying that you “drive for show, and putt for dough.” But have you ever taken the time to actually think about that statement? Have you ever reviewed your scorecard at the end of your round to compare how many fairways you hit to the amount of putts you had in your 9 or 18 hole round?
Well it’s likely that your putt attempts drastically outnumber your fairways hit and greens hit in regulation, but that’s nothing to be ashamed about! On average for 9 hole rounds, your average golfer will score somewhere between 40 and 60 per Golf Storage Guide. Obviously, everyone would much rather be closer to 40 than 60, but more times than not it comes down to your putting and eliminating those “damn 3 putts.”
Did you know that if you 3 putt on every hole in a 9 hole round that you dedicated 27 strokes alone to just putting? So even if you hit every fairway off the tee and every green in regulation (which we know how hard it is to do consistently), chances are you have 27 putts compared to 13 hit fairways and greens, specifically geared towards playing an absolutely perfect round full swing wise at American Classic G.C. Yes, that would equal to shooting a score of 40, but imagine if those 3 putts become 2 putts? Or even if you simply only 3 putt on half of the holes. Just like that, you are all of a sudden scoring in the 30s per 9 holes just by improving your putting.
If you feel like this hits close to home, please don’t hesitate to reach out to schedule a putting lesson today! It’s very important to have a consistent full swing and to truly know your distances with each club, but the fastest way to improve your scores is by eliminating putts. So wear your Loudmouth clothes, play your music, and have fun when out on the course, but take some time to improve your putting and all of a sudden those clothes, music, and fun vibes feel even greater when you see that you are improving your scores after each round.
