Find better players

I've played and practiced a lot with Tiger Woods. Obviously Tiger can hit iron shots no woman can hit, let alone most men, but that didn't stop me from trying to play like him. Gradually, bits of Tiger's technique crept into my game. By trying to copy the way he shaped shots and controlled his spin and trajectory, the shots that once had been difficult for me in competition became easier. I led the LPGA Tour in greens in regulation in 2010, in part because I played as much golf as possible with someone who was much better than I was. Seeking out the best players at your course will really boost your game.
