Bobby Jones has the famous quote, “Golf is a game that is played on a five-inch course – the distance between your ears.” And getting golfers to think differently about how they play is no easy feat. In fact, co-founders of Me and My Golf, Piers Ward & Andy Proudman commonly joke that if they caddied for golfers they’d save them five strokes by just getting them to ‘think differently’.
Thinking differently about your game isn’t always easy, but if you’re going to listen to anyone–should probably be the pros. Piers & Andy are some of the industry’s best and more famous coaches; but beyond that, it’s part of their mission to help break through the barriers of what’s possible with anyone’s golf game. They have launched a platform that provides tailored improvement plans for golfer’s of any skill level.
In addition to having one of the most advanced online golf learning platforms, these rockstars have a corresponding podcast where they featured Arccos Co-Founder & CEO Sal Syed to discuss ‘the fastest way to lower your scores’. And it all starts with data!
Here are some of the topics they cover:
- How you can use data to make improvements to your game.
- “Quick wins” you can do immediately to improve par 3/4 and 5’s.
- Strategy from 100 yards and in.
- The importance of playing your average and not just your best.
- The importance of setting real expectations to manage your emotions.
While we are talking about thinking differently on-course, it’s not suggested that you think more on course. Sometimes getting out of your head is exactly what you need. Focusing on the execution of shots rather than the mechanics is how you should be focusing on the course. Review your on-course performance later, and use your practice sessions to really hone in on your mechanics. Use your course time to play the game.
Using Arccos, players can easily identify their strengths and weaknesses through the AI powered data, allowing them to prioritise their practice plans. Under the guidance of the Me And My Golf team of Andy Proudman and Piers Ward, players can accelerate their improvement with the data to back it up.
