While some golfers relish their alone time at the driving range, other individuals may be unaware of the many benefits the driving range can provide. Repetition is the greatest advantage of hitting a few dozen, if not a few hundred, balls at the driving range. During a match of nine or 18 holes, an individual may be forced to rue a hooked or sliced shot for the rest of the afternoon. At the driving range, meanwhile, a golfer can recreate the same swing motion over and over until he or she feels the shot has been perfected.
Similarly, a golfer can spend as much time as he or she would like on each of their clubs until the entire set feels familiar and comfortable. When playing competitively, a golfer may hesitate to pull out the 9 iron or to putt from the green. When practicing at the range, individuals can experiment for hours at a time to improve these weak spots in their game.
