I get it; finding time to practice can be tough.
It’s also one of the reasons why you’re not getting better.
It doesn’t have to be, though! You can practice golf anywhere. Even if it’s just a few minutes a day, doing something far outweighs doing nothing.
Check this out:
I’m on vacation in Wisconsin and still working on my swing. I’m not hitting balls here, but what I am doing is looking to see where the shaft is as it’s coming down to impact.
When I start my swing with my hips, as we all should, the club comes down a little. As my hands get to about hip height, if I did everything correctly the shaft will bisect my upper arm. That lets me know I’m “in the slot”, with an inside-out swing.
You can do this, as well.
It doesn’t matter where you are; you can do something to help you get better at golf.

There’s a whole bunch of ways to do it, most don’t even take more than a half an hour:
- practice your grip while watching TV
- practice your stance while watching TV
- record yourself (as I did) to check positions in your swing
- practice starting putts on the correct line in the office
- practice pitching and chipping in the backyard while the grill’s warming up
It most definitely can be done.
Hell, you can even work on the mental part of the game by using scorecards to check the lay of the land. Find the “fat” part of the fairways and greens, figure out where to miss your shots so you’re still in a good position to make a good play on the next shot.Related: 6 Training Aids under $20 (and their DIY alternatives) you can use- at home, no less!
Handicaps haven’t moved significantly in many, many years. If you’re serious about getting better, there’s something you can do, whenever you get a little time, to change that- regardless of where you’re at.
