What do you consider to be “practice”? Do you show up at the course 30 or so minutes before Tee time and hit a few balls and putt a bit?

Have you ever considered maybe playing 9 holes and then taking a few hours to practice a bit? That s a great technique for people who have a finite amount of time to play golf.

When doing it right feels wrong. So many of us have played this game for years, making certain kinds of shots badly.
