Course Management: This is the key that unlocks your progress. Put in the time to map. Main focus is to know where to land an approach shot for easiest putt. Best shot to learn? Punch shot!
Golf Balls: Believe it or not, map every shot for a starter or starter like ball. Why?
(1) You can establish a foundation, an average, for every shot, for less money. Repeat, yes it is only an average, but provides good info for whenever using more expensive golf balls.
(2) If nothing else, a starter ball can provide you with excellent information for drives in every wind conditions, at every level, except at Legend tier.
(3) Mapping the starter or starter like ball will allow you to move through levels inexpensively. Best place to start is the best of the Par 3's.
I've come across too many Legends who's focus was quickly getting to that tier, but realize they do not have the necessary clubs. So take time to planning your move to the next tier.
