The game of golf entails more than just hitting a small ball through the grass in the hopes of it landing in a hole. There is much more to the game including taking in environmental factors such as the slope of the green, the weather, and the amount of water on the grass. Professional golfers notice all these elements and take them into consideration before they take their shot. If you are serious about becoming a good golfer, you need to remember that this will not happen overnight. You need to build keen observation skills, build up patience, and understand that no matter how hard you try, not every shot will be your best.
