Practice rounds are the most important way to familiarize yourself with the course before a golf tournament.
Don’t rely on a golf rangefinder alone
There is a lot more that goes into a shot then just the exact yardage from a golf rangefinder. Players should always identify the best spot on the ball to hit in order to make the putt. When taking a practice round, things to consider include:
- Change of elevation
- Distance to carry bunkers and hazards
- Where to leave the ball on the green based on slopes and undulation
Take good notes
Make notes about these factors prior to playing a competitive round. Good notes provide you with a less stressful round.
