Why is it hard to be consistent in golf?
Why Consistency in Golf Is So Difficult 1. The nature of the golf swing is not natural and there are many moving parts to the actual mechanics of the swing. Even if one small part of the swing or body motion is off on a given round, all of sudden your dreaded slice or hook is back in full force.
Why are my irons so inconsistent?
One of the most common causes of inconsistent results in golf is simply losing focus prior to hitting a shot. Golf takes a long time to play, and it is easy to let your mind wander on the course.
Why is my ball striking so inconsistent?
Moving the torso up and down throughout the swing causes the golf to have inconsistent strike patterns at impact. Keeping the angle of the torso constant in the backswing and forward allows the golfer to repeatedly bottom out the clubhead in the perfect position for solid contact.

Why do I get worse at golf the more I play?
For the vast majority of club players, golf is a social game. When we play in this way we are wide-focused, talking to others and taking in the scene. This also tends to be when we have played our best. Then a competition rolls around; we become quieter and sterner, get our game face on and typically play worse.
How long does it take to get consistent at golf?
As a general rule, it takes a beginner around six months to learn to hit a golf ball; this includes attending regular lessons to learn the golf swing fundamentals. When starting, it’s all about building confidence in your swing and learning how to strike the ball well.
Why can’t I hit the ball off the tee?
You can’t possibly hit up on the ball if it’s only an inch off the ground. Tee it so two-thirds of the ball is higher than the crown of the driver (above), and adjust the ball’s position so it’s in line with the big toe on your front foot.
Why are my tee shots so low?
Tee shots that are too low can actually be caused by cutting your backswing short as well. If you don’t finish your backswing, you won’t be able to get positioned correctly behind the ball – meaning you are more likely to end up leaning left at impact and again fighting with a downward angle of attack.
