The attraction and frustration of sport is that there is always room for improvement. There are no absolutes. Sprinters can run the 100 metres m faster, batsmen can score more runs, tennis players can play more passing shots, darts players can score 180 more frequently, and a golf ball can always be struck more sweedy.
Regardless of the sport, there are two fundamental ways in which you can improve your game: technique and practice. Memory plays a key role in both. Golf, like chess, is a game of the mind, requiring high levels of concentration and mental composure. A good memory is invaluable for players of all standards. Beginners need to remember a whole range of things before each shot (stance, grip, angle of clubface). And a professional, faced with an awkward lie perhaps, or difficult playing conditions, should always be able to refer back to a relevant precedent, possibly from many years ago.
I am going to concentrate solely on how memory can improve one aspect of the game: your swing.
