“It’s easier to avoid a bad neighborhood if you know where that enighborhood is.”
I am at a PGA seminar and one of the speakers said this and I really liked it.
If you know how to hit the bad shot that is your predominant miss, it makes it easier to avoid it. So go out and hit your bad miss on purpose.
At my lessons and golf schools, people are not most impressed by how far I hit it, nor my knowledge of the swing. They are impressed most by my ability to hit a shank on command.
Guess how many shanks I hit by accident?
