Golf Without The Flag

Phoenix, Arizona Golf Lessons Update: Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Yesterday I played nine holes at Rio Salado golf course without the flag on each hole. Why? Not my choice, the course was closed at 5:00 p.m. yesterday due to the rain.

Here is what I learned yesterday:

1. By playing without the flag, I made my target the middle of the green.

2. If I did not reach the middle of the green, then on in regulation was fine.

3. By playing shots onto the green, I was focused on the big target – the green.

My Results: 7 out of 9 greens in regulation with a score of 1 over par. Not bad for light rain and strong wind.

Happy Golfing,
