Overview

Women's Guide to Consistent Golf by Kellie Stenzel

Are you constantly searching for that ever-elusive consistent game of golf?

You may know how to hit the shots, but do you know how to play the game of golf?

Do you play a round of golf, feeling that you have played pretty well and find that you are continually frustrated that your score has not decreased as you would have hoped?

Learning the art of scoring on the golf course is part of the natural progression of learning the game of golf. To this point you have learned "how" and now you have to take accountability for the more important question "how many?".

The book includes methods to increase consistency through practice techniques and on course strategies. It gives you the questions you need to ask yourself to make the right decisions on the course. It teaches you how to make your practice time productive and shows you more advanced shot making options that are available to you now as you are a more experienced player. Once you learn each particular skill: putting, chipping, pitching, sand and full swing, you will then need to learn to make them work under the pressure on the course when each shot counts.

Apply the techniques you will learn over time and you will see your scores and your handicap drop. Learn what the lower handicapped players are doing and thinking. Learn to choose the highest percentage shot in different situations, along with a short game progression to help you to decide whether to putt, chip or pitch.

Most golf instructionals - especially those for women - deal with the absolute beginner. This program is unique in that it helps golfers with the next stage of their game, thereby enhancing their enjoyment on the course.
