For many years, golf has been a favorite sport among a lot of people. You would think that it would be an easy game to play because of all the attention it gets. The truth is, golf isn’t as easy as people believe it to be but it’s not all hard either.

When it comes to playing golf, people end up being bad at it because they have a hard time trying to figure out the proper swing techniques, what golf clubs to use, etc…They don’t quite understand that there’s more to golf than just getting the ball into the hole. You have to make sure that you’re standing properly as well as calculating the velocity of the ball.

The people that seem to play the worst are the people that are new to the game and the ones that are overconfident. Some people don’t realize that they can make the game much harder than it has to be by doing those things, as well as several other things.

If you come out on the green overconfident as if you know it all, this could very well result in you not playing properly. They’re hitting the ball too hard which will result in the ball either going pass the hole or in a bunker.

Another reason why some people are bad at golf is, they don’t give the game 100% of an effort. This isn’t a game that you can learn overnight and some people play once a year and then complain when they can’t sink any balls.

You have to go into this game and be prepared to give it your all. If you don’t give it your all and halfway play the game, you will continue to play bad and may never improve your golfing skills.

Another reason some people are bad at golf is, they become frustrated. It’s not good to be frustrated when playing golf because it could make you lose focus and this will result in you over hitting the ball or even make you want to give up on the game which is not good because how will you get better at a game you don’t want to play just because you’re frustrated. It’s best to go into this game at ease so that you can try to avoid any complications that’ll make your playing even worse and if you’re already playing bad, that’s the last thing that you want to happen.

Bottom line, they’re so many reasons why people play bad at golf and some reasons are more complex than others. It’s a game of skill and knowledge. If people don’t apply themselves properly and use the necessary knowledge and skills they need to help them successfully learn to play the game, they will continue to play badly and continue to question why they’re so bad at golf.
