  • Golf is not a luck-based sport, people don’t win tournaments because of luck. To get proficient at anything you’d need to put in 10,000 hours of practice. As Arnold Palmer said “The more I practice, the luckier I get”
  • Practice short game, it makes a huge difference in your scores

  • Also make friends with the people you meet at tournaments – a lot of them will be your buddies for life
