This week, as a golf tip, my offering is about golf etiquette. I chose to
d othis because not only should it be part of the learning process, but als
obecause it becomes more and more apparent that too many golfers are not aware
or just ignore that part of the game that is pure golf coursecourtesy and
should be practiced during every round.
Next time you play, try to notice how many divots have not been replaced
onyour fairways. If the person in front of you had replaced his/her divot,
you would not have this awful lie that you now have. Give some thought to
the people playing behind you and replace your divots. Just maybe the practice
will become contagious.
Equally important, and maybe even more so, would be the practice of fixing
ball marks on the putting surface. If you would fix your ball mark and one
or two others, your playing partners will pick up the habit from you and eventually
our greens will be in better condition.
And while we're at it, let's not forget the sand traps. Think of your thoughts
when you find your ball in someone else's footprint. "UGLY". It takes 30 seconds,you've
done the proper thing and maybe even set an example for your playing partners.
And then again, just maybe the people behind you saw what you did.There's
more!! Taking the few seconds it takes to keep "your" course in good playng
condition will even give you the same time to settle down,and calm your nerves.
It will give you time to think!!
Practice a little courtesy when you play. It could become"catching".
