I recall watching Tiger Woods practice at the Masters where, to the disappointment of the on looking crowd, he proceeded to make full swings with his driver only to hit the ball no more than 100 yards. He couldn’t have cared less about the distance, what he wanted to do was ‘feel’ the new position he was working on.
The Winning Post
Nose ahead of your rivals with this inside tip to sharpen up your short game.
A big problem many golfers face on the little shots is ‘fat contact’ or hitting the turf before the ball, often caused by the club-head quickly passing the handle into impact. A great way to hit crisper chips and pitches is to imagine that your handle and club-head are in a race to the finish line. Here I have created an image where I view the handle as the number one horse and the club-head as the number two horse in a race. Play your ball in the centre of your stance with a little weight favouring the front foot, make sure No.1 horse beats No.2, and your duffed chip shots will be a thing of the past, neigh bother*.
