    Do you ever feel like you practice too much? For me the result can be pains (lower back, golf elbow) or getting sloppy.

    I have a 9 year old son who loves to ride his bike/skateboard/scooter outside and so while i'm supervising him, i'm hitting foam balls in the front yard. My neighborhood is also the home to an abandoned golf course that still is still wide open and gets mowed. So i go practice my short and mid irons with real balls on my lunch break 3-4 days a week.

    I love this game! But sometimes i have to give it a 5 day break and i'm generally better after that break.

    WHY?

    Maybe, with respect, you ought to have a teaching pro take a look at your swing. You could be practicing wrong. He now has me lined up properly and not swinging as hard.

    Definitely going to be my next golf investment. I'm currently self-taught with much YouTube input. Some of it has been helpful, some of it fluff.

    If you use the same muscles over and over again without a break , they begin to tire and wear and then eventually injury and damage, so having some breaks won’t hurt you

    Do you get a chance to "play" golf rather than "work" at golf? Sometimes it's fun just to get out a course and get in 18 and shoot a score rather than hitting practice balls.
    I do like the idea of having an abandoned course still in good shape being very near my house! That would be pretty cool...
  6. I practice a lot, however I must force my self to take breaks. Physically, sure body needs it, but the mental game is equally as important. (example) When I know I am not "practicing with a purpose" but rather just hitting balls, its time to stop
  7. Practice right!!!
  8. Swing it good !!!
