Good Short Game Practice Leads to Lower Scores

Feb 01 2014

My time on the PGA Tour was a fantastic experience even though it was cut short due to injuries. I learned a lot from competing with the best players in the world. One of the things I realized was: the great players spend a lot of time on their short games-putting, chipping, pitching and sand shots. Many of the established PGA Tour Players spent a lot of time practicing the chip-and-run shot with a 6, 7 or 8 iron -even though we would not hit the chip shot very often during our round. I first thought-WOW what a waste of time, but I finally figured out that those chips shots were not only sharpening their short games, but helping them to hit all their shots better-short shots and full swings.
