Figure a place for anyone wants to chat about anything to help their golf game. Equipment they like, don't like, etc...
I mentioned in the Outing thread about wanting to work on my short game. Those shots that just miss the green by a 5 or 10 yards that should be up and down for par turn into a double bogey fast for me. I watched some videos, read some articles, went to Mt. Pleasant to practice pitching from 20-30 yards out.
I take 6 balls and the goal is to land each one within a 10 ft. circle. Pros try to get each one within a club length. I'm not that good. I'm basically getting on average 1 out of 6 in the desired target. Which means more often than not two putting for bogey. If I'm way off target, 3 putts, or chipping back on, then two putting, hence the double bogey.
Things I try to remember: Ball positioned on front heel, hands and shaft leaning forward, weight forward, don't decelerate on the downswing.
I swear I'll hit one shot that looks real good, not change a thing, swing the same distance, the next shot will go half as far, not change a thing, the next shot will go over the green.
Are there any short game masters in the house? I swear this costs me 10 strokes a round.
