Fall is here in the Northeast (boo! not ready for the season to be over with) and lately my score has been consistent. My HCP has gone down a little and thinking what did I do different? I go back to this one advice I got from a good friend this summer. We always have a match when we play and I think this one time he got a little irritated b/c I do this a lot when we play. I like to take a mulligan or two (rarely) or if I hit a bad shot I would drop one down and hit another one, but don't worry I do count all my shots against him. Anyways, I hit a bad shot so I put a 2nd ball down and hit again. After that my buddy looked at me and said, “WHY? What do you gain from doing that? Play the first shot and recover. You’ll get better that way.” I was caught off guard at first but ok I'll play my first. Since then I did away with mulligans and 2nd shots and it has paid off handsomely. And honestly this one advice has improved my short game and chipping a little, more confidence around the green.
Also before the advice if I was in tough spot I would just whack my way out not really looking at the big picture. Now, I'm taking a few extra seconds and thinking what's the best way to get up and down from here. Every shot matters.
Having the best clubs in the bag has truly helped my game as well. The AP3s and Vokeys has been a life saver for me. Get fit and the rest will take care of itself. And yes, TS will soon be added.
Did anyone get that one advice this year that helped their game?

With no range here at my home course i always hit 2 off the first tee. Play the better of the 2 and roll on. I don’t take mulligans it’s not a true score. The only person Your fooling is yourself when taking mulligans.
