How to Break "90" - Part 1 "The Introduction"
In this article, I’m wish to introduce you to a concept plan for a definitive and reliable method on How to Break 90. Why? Because I know that it’s one goal that a huge majority of avid golfers share. “I want to break 90” is the second most common goal that my students have, behind only, “be more consistent.”
I will warn you that this plan is unorthodox. Then again, if doing things the “normal” way worked, you wouldn’t be reading this, would you? Follow this plan accurately and I give you assurances that your chances of shooting an 89 (or better) will improve dramatically in no time at all.
A huge part of breaking through any scoring barrier is creating the proper mindset. To break 90, you need to do two things:
1) Realize that 89 is 17 bogeys and 1 par (on a par 72 course). That’s it. I know that every golfer who wants to break 90 has made lots of pars and bogeys before, so there’s nothing involved in breaking 90 that you can’t do already.
2) 2) Pick the right tee box. I’ll deal with the specifics of this shortly, but you cannot go into this with the idea that you have to break 90 from the tips. Breaking 90 is breaking 90, period. If you have to go all the way to the forward tees to break 90, do it. Scoring barriers are mental more than anything else, and once they’ve fallen, they’re down for good. You should want to break them as soon as possible, regardless of the yardage of the course
The Shots and strategies that YOU Need
There are a number of strategies to be applied to Breaking 90. You must abide by these strategies, lest you be doomed to shooting 91 or more for the rest of your days.
To begin with, determine which is the longest club that you have the most control with that you can hit 150 yards or more without ever getting in trouble. This chosen club may not be the driver and if it isn’t don’t even bring it with you to the golf course.
Next by overall simply thinking differently, you can do a lot to reach the goal of breaking 90 without changing your swing much at all.
