The GrunkleGuru

Grunkle is a slang term for the thick rough on a golf course that I have been using for many years. Given my penchant for inaccurate tee balls, I have become a bit of a guru out of the thick stuff, hence the name. This is a site for my random thoughts about sports (espeically golf) and life in general. While nothing special, it will hopefully offer a break from the daily drudgery for both you and me.

Tip of the Week - A Little Analysis Goes A Long Way

While the golf season is far from over here in the south, the frequency of rounds will definitely start to slow down. Now is the time to start working on your game for the 2006 season. Let me suggest you conduct some analysis on your game for the rest of the year.

Every time you play take some notes. The point of this exercise is to figure out exactly what parts of your game are weakest so that you can practice with a purpose. Some key stats you want to sample.

Fairways hit
Greens in regulation
Total putts

In addition, try to figure how many times you hit each club. If you find that during the course of a round you only hit your five iron once, but hit your nine iron 12 times, then you should be working with you nine iron during your practice sessions. That will help you get dialed in on shots with that club giving you more confidence.

Doing some analysis of you game will go a long way towards helping you have more beneficial practice time.
