Are you ready to break 80?

If you want to break 80 you have to build some critical capabilities:

1. Length: You need to hit your driver 220+. Your 9 iron should carry at least 130 yards. To get length you need to work on a solid golfswing.

2. Greens in Regulation: You need to hit more than 10 greens per round:
- All PAR 5
- 2 of 4 PAR 3
- 4 of 10 PAR 4

3. Short Game: If you miss 8 greens, you have to scramble at least three of them. That is the toughest part of the game. Tiger makes 75%. That's what he does: Scrambling and sinking long putts.

4. Putting: 100% of the three-footers, 60% of the six-footers, not more than 2 threeputs per round

5. Birdies: To break 80 usually you need two birdies per round. Remember: 80% of all birdies are made on the PAR fives.
