If you ask the average professional golfer to identify the most important skill in golf, many of them will tell you distance control. When you hit the ball the correct distance, it’s unlikely that you’ll be far from your desired target. Even if your accuracy was not spot on, a shot that was hit the correct yardage is usually playable, at the very least. Along with regular practice, using a launch monitor to track your distances is a big help.
