How to practice is just as important as how long and what you practice. I'll show you tips from the tour to make your practice sessions so good that you can carry your game onto the course when it's game time.
In March at The Players Championship I filmed Brendon Todd on the range before round 1 as he was going through his feels, thoughts and swing/ Not only was he garnishing the feels that have helped his golf swing become solid and repeatable, he also works hard mentally preparing. Everyone can and should learn to practice as you would play.
Sometimes as we age we get bogged down in technique and lose sight of the intuition and even the learn for ourselves aspect. Get out there and be a kid again sometimes- especially in your short game practice. Learn what makes each shot tick for you- then you will be able to produce it more often out on the course.
Being a former PGA Tour player I always found it fascinating the lengths several pros would go to in their quest for perfect putting. The great players are not afraid to try anything that will assist them in getting the ball in the hole sooner.

Many golfers assume strange practice swing feels- several have been caught on camera. Moe Norman is demonstrating his forearm feel coming into impact in the picture here. In the video we run through Justin Roses' strange rehearsal and explain what and why he may be doing such a thing.

When making a change to your swing you must be very careful to understand what other effect that change will have in some other area of the swing. Getting better wont generally happen in one foul swoop. There is always a need to add add and then subtract something from your focus to get the end result.
Ultimately your goal as a golfer is to not be perfect- that is practically impossible- but to know why a bad shot arises and have an understanding of how to fix the issue swiftly when out on the course.
