The Easiest Way To Lower Your Handicap

The frequency and the severity of a players’ errors does more to dictate a players’ scoring level than all of the good or average shots they hit. In SwingU Versus’ strokes gained algorithm, there are three negative driving results, penalties in the approach game, missed greens on short-game shots, so there is an array of negative analysis points.
