You have to spend time, energy and then more time, more energy along with more sweat to practise. We all know that the time each individual need to get to the same standard depends sharply on their own talent and personal characteristics but the answer can only be a lot of time. Some famous player has said that you can practise forever and never feel enough. Even professional players still spend a lot of time each day to practise and make their shots and swings perfect.

However, based on many researches, we have come up with some positive numbers as reference. The ideal time to practise each day to be a professional golf player is six hours. And you have to spend six hours per day from Monday to Friday every week to practise.

Apparently, there will be some distractions that you cannot avoid but you need to practise your ability to stay focus. However, you have to put your whole self into the games or else you will never keep yourself free from distractions.
A higher level of practising is to make specific targets and work hard to achieve them.

This even happens when you are playing your best so it makes you worry and angry. All you need to do in these cases is to accept the fact and keep practising as hard as you can. You can reduce your highest score targets but never lower your lowest score targets. Once you have accepted your level and fixed the targets, you will start seeing the improvements in your performance.
