How to practice is just as important as how long and what you practice. I'll show you tips from the tour to make your practice sessions so good that you can carry your game onto the course when it's game time.
Many golfers assume strange practice swing feels- several have been caught on camera. Moe Norman is demonstrating his forearm feel coming into impact in the picture here. In the video we run through Justin Roses' strange rehearsal and explain what and why he may be doing such a thing.
Luke Donald has always been recognized with having one of the better short games on tour. He recently posted a video showing his pitching action- and a great way to train how to use the bounce correctly.
When making a change to your swing you must be very careful to understand what other effect that change will have in some other area of the swing. Getting better wont generally happen in one foul swoop. There is always a need to add add and then subtract something from your focus to get the end result.
Ultimately your goal as a golfer is to not be perfect- that is practically impossible- but to know why a bad shot arises and have an understanding of how to fix the issue swiftly when out on the course.
How do you warm up before a round of golf? Tinkerer or Learner?
Being able to solve your own swing is the plan to my coaching. Learning to see what areas need work on will point you back to the drill you need to pay attention to solve the issue quickly. Rather than trying so many things you end up down the rabbit hole. There is a plan that works. Stick to it.
Ultimately the goal to chipping is to get the ball in the hole or as close as possible. Here is a chipping game that allows you to focus on this rather than technique- so it becomes easier on the course to dial those short shots in.
Swing tempos aren't necessarily based on someone's personality of being fast or in a rush or laid back or slow. It has a lot to do with how good or strong you are in a certain area of your swing.
Short game shots require practice and imagination. The best way to practice is to allow your practice to be indiscriminate. Watch this video to learn how to play all situations that arise close to the green.
