Moreover, the 15-time major championship winner says you learn all these things by practicing and understanding tendencies. So, when you turn up to play a round of golf on a golf course, you know where to hit and where to miss. That’s why grinding it out at the range is very important.

“And for any kid who is aspiring, it just takes time and patience, and again there is no quick way around, no quick fix. You gotta go out there and earn it each and every day and go out there, dig it out of the dirt,” advised Tiger. Hence, Woods believes players need to grind it out at the range and understand their game better, which will eventually make their game on the golf course easier.
