It’s every golfer’s dream to spend each day on the greens, but those who can’t make daily trips due to price, weather, or life responsibilities, assume the hunched position at home, practicing with whiffle balls, nets, and electronic devices while daydreaming about making outdoor rounds.

– Never point the gun at anything you do not intend to destroy
– Always be sure of the target (and what is behind it)
– Keep your finger off the trigger until the target is in sight

These are stressed continuously until the notions become automatic, ingrained in a hobbyist’s brain, influencing ongoing behavior.
