What can a round of virtual golf do for your game? If you’ve spent lots of time driving, slicing, and putting without finding much improvement on the final scorecard, a virtual session of golf may show several areas of development you can’t find on the greens. Virtual golf is a huge phenomenon, taking the previous video-game experiences to a whole new level, used by professionals and amateurs alike. How can you use a virtual golf platform to slim down your handicap?
Speed Up the Game
One of the major problems of training for golf is the time commitment required. Not only do you have to schedule a tee time, but you have to get from the first hole to the 18th hole, over most or even all of the day. Virtual golf removes the physical barriers to the game: location, distance, and sitting around while the group ahead of you searches for their ball. A virtual golf session may take you less than an hour to burn through all 18 holes of a major course, each one a picture-perfect capture of the fairways and the greens.
Who wouldn’t relish the chance to figure out the ins and outs of a course before they played it in real life? Choose from any of your favorite courses, from Augusta to Pebble Beach, so that you know the doglegs and the sand traps before you step foot on the real thing. Virtual golf allows you to load up your favorite courses so that they appear in vivid detail, accurate to the contours and the topography of the real life fairways. Get a major advantage by knowing how your shot will perform before you step foot at the first tee.
What do you do best at on the links? Putting or driving may be your ace in the hole, and having the opportunity to focus specifically on these aspects of the game can help iron out the smallest weaknesses. Virtual golf lets you skip to what you want most — the long drive or the short hole — whenever you want to build a strength or work on a weakness.
Didn’t like that last shot? Upset with how your slice broke in the wrong direction? Worry not and load up the shot again. A virtual golf session is a lot better than a driving range: you can work on the fundamentals of your shot, but also the specific choices you need to make in tough situations. Replay a hole or even an entire course until you’re satisfied with your performance and know exactly which club to use to make par.
