Get your game up to par with the pointers from golf pro Michael Samaniego in these Howcast videos.
Hi, my name is Michael Samaniego golf professional at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. Chalk Mountain Golf Course is a championship level golf course with 3 professional golfers, including myself. And today I'm going to talk to you about golf. So we'll talk about the easiest way to improve your golf game. I try to dedicate at least 2 hours a day, 3 times a week, which comes out to about 6 hours a week or so. Dedicate yourself so that you can work on your fundamentals. Once you've done that, go out on the golf course and play 9 holes or so, so as to give yourself a benchmark as to how your practice routines are going. Its been my experience that although we practice as much as we possibly can, the best way to improve your game is actually go out and play. I've found from personal experience that if I play with somebody whose skill level is a little higher than mine, it really elevates my game. My concentration, my dedication to each shot is improved by playing with somebody who is a little bit better skill level than I. Obviously practice is equally important, but to better your golf game, try and find somebody who is a little bit better, at the very minimum, your skill level, or a little bit higher.
