Why Practicing Indoors Is More Effective
How often do you visit the outdoor driving range and mindlessly crank through a bucket of balls? You will often feel like you are making the effort and leave feeling pretty good, albeit in Singapore you feel awfully hot and soaked in sweat! However, there is a common misconception that going to the driving range will ultimately improve your golf game.
Whacking balls into a field is an inexpensive way to get to know the average distances of your clubs, but it isn't a very accurate method.
Golf simulators, on the other hand, give you precise feedback every single shot. You are given exact calculations of your precise carry and total distance, ball speed, how far shots are missed left or right, and provided with visuals of your actual shot as well as trajectory view and dispersion view. You understand exactly where your ball went, which allows you to adjust and adapt, speeding your learning process with confidence.
Learning indoors on a simulator means you eliminate the hot and sweaty mess after your practice session! Cool and calm people often are able to learn and perform better. Having a private simulator gives beginner golfers the opportunity to practice privately, away from the crowd of golfers you'll find on a driving range - it can get intimidating sometimes.
Indoor golf centers, such as Urban Fairways, are aimed at improving your golf game fast and efficiently in a calm, and relaxing environment. The combination of great music in the background, easy lighting, relaxing drinks, and great quality food and service creates a very unique and easy learning environment. Golf is as much a mental sport as it is a physical one, and as a golf pro, I guarantee you would learn better on a simulator with instant high-tech feedback as opposed to on an outdoor range.
See you on the greens!
