3 Tough Golf Shots Made Easy

Three Tough Golf Shots Made Easy

One reason golf intrigues us so much is because there are so many factors that contribute to hitting a good shot. Even if you hit a good shot, additional contributing factors could still force you into a bad situation: Distance. Lie. Wind. Stance. Trees. Sand. Water. Speed of the green.

There’s another big factor - your mind. Was your last shot awful? Was it awesome? Do you need a birdie to get back into contention? Did you hit a bad shot the last time you used this club? Even a regular shot can drive you crazy if you let it.

So how can you increase your confidence when making some of the more difficult golf shots? Golf Academy of America has a few tips to make these tough shots a little less daunting.
