I went from a 10 HCP to a 3 HCP a few years back just by playing 2x a week and practicing 1x a week. My short game improved ten fold. Also, I made more consistent contact and could manage my misses better.I have a question for the scratch, near scratch, or just dang good golfers among you.
We've all heard stories of folks that are naturally good at golf. You know, you buddy who was a baseball player in high school, but decided to give golf a try 2 years ago and is currently playing to a 3 handicap.
However, I'm interested in those of you that came from the top (high handicapper) and worked your way down.
Was there a breakthrough in your game? Was it a particular instructor? A change in technique? Just lots more hours of practice? Or was it just slow and steady improvement?
Just curious to see if anyone made any big jumps and where those jumps happened if so.
Of course, with 3 kids including 2 little ones this year its hard to get out 1x a week these days let alone practice (hence I am back up to a 7)
