- The 777 Training Approach – This is my own method to killing it out on the golf coarse. This is an actual training program that will help you get better at your iron play. Which in turn will help your score and handicap.
Let’s get started with your guide to improve iron play.
In order to get better iron play you need practice with your irons. Make sense right? Most of us, including me, practice on the golf range with range balls using every iron I have in my golf bag.
This is good. Your getting practice.
But in order for us to really have better iron play, we need to take it a step further and get out on the coarse. This is where the 777 training approach comes in.
777 Training Program
This golf training program is all about getting out on the golf coarse and putting you into a position to use your irons in any spot on the coarse.
So get your irons, get on the coarse, and let’s get started.
** You want to try this training program when there is not a lot of people on the coarse. Right before the golf coarse closes is a good time or early in the morning on a week day or afternoon on the weekend works well too.
The First 7 – The first 7 is all about your your golf club. Take your 7 iron to use for this practice round. Instead of using any other clubs in your iron set, you will only use your 7 iron.
Yes that means you will use your 7 iron for the entire golf round. Even if you are not that good with your 7 iron, take it out of your bag and get ready.
The Second 7 – The second 7 is about golf balls. You need to take 7 golf balls out of your bag and keep them handy for your round. The goal here is to have 7 different balls for what ever shot comes up.
It doesn’t matter what type of golf balls you use for improving iron play, just that you have them.
*** I always suggest that when you are playing a real round that you use a golf ball that is meant to be used around the putting green and chipping surfaces. The golf balls that promise long distance is unnecessary. Focus your golf ball choice on around the green.
The Third 7 – This is the last 7 and what it stands for is “Golf Shots”. You will be taking 7 golf shots for each part of your trip around the golf coarse.
So make sure that each shot you take, instead of taking one, take 7.
How It Works
For this practice round of golf, you are going to improve your iron play by only using your 7 iron. That’s right, for the entire round you are only allowed to hit with your 7 iron.
All the way from the tee box unto the putting green, you must use your iron.
Each time you step up for a shot, you will be taking 7. The key here is to take every swing with your 7 iron. So start out and hit your drive 7 times with your 7 iron. Then, go to all your balls and hit them again with your 7. Go the the next spot and hit them with your 7.
If you are around the green, still use your 7. And at last, use your 7 iron to putt.
The idea behind this golf training program is to really get familiar with your 7 iron and work on a couple of things:
- Get comfortable with your clubs.
- Work on consistent iron play.
- Don’t fear where your ball is.
So this is the program in a nut shell. You can do this with any iron. It really gets interesting with a 3 or 4 iron. You are forced to hit all types of different shots.
Good Luck on the 777.
