Reading Greens – Putting Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! A sound putting technique is only half the way to being a great putter. You also need to be able to read the green properly. Reading greens comes mostly through experience. If you hit a lot of putts on different terrain, grass and greens, you develop a sense for the roll of the ball. Unfortunately most people are always in a hurry on the greens, because the next group of people is already behind them or your friends want to move on. First of all it is always a [...]

Circuit Training #2 – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Being calm and focused in the short game area is key. Nothing is more frustrating than turning a birdie opportunity into a bogey or even a double bogey. It happened to me as it probably did to you, because we rushed the putt or executed our chipping poorly. To work on your short game do the following exercises. Rest for 30 seconds between each exercise. Use that time to brace yourself or go to the next practice facility. Do the training circuit at least two times. 3 min – [...]

Creative Shots – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! What most people do not think of when they see a professional player pull off one of those creative shots is that he or she has probably practiced it a lot. Chances would not be on the players side, if he or she made it up on the spot. Yet those creative shots can give a golfer the edge over his competition, because he has a better solution to a particular problem his opponents do not have. And with more choice he can always try to perform the best [...]

Target Area – Short Game Golf Lesson – Putting

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! You can draw a circle area around the golf hole of three feet. In this area you have a 97 to 100 percent chance of making the putt. If you move just two feet away, you are already at 75 percent. With this exponential fall off you see how important it is for you to place your shots inside of a three feet target area around the golf hole. First of all you want to work on your putts from inside the target area to make sure that you [...]

Ditching the Sand – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Getting up and down out of green side bunkers is one of the skills many people admire with the pros. Of course, the professional players invest the time to get this kind of accuracy. But the most important fact is that they have a fearless mindset in the bunker. Most amateurs get their heart pumping once their ball finds its way into the sand. I think it is due to the fact that they are not playing often enough from the bunker. They are not experienced enough with the possibilities and [...]

Playing Under the Bridge – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Some people always use too much force with their chipping. Chipping is definitely more about feel than force. The following drill will help you to use the right swing with your chipping. To do that balance a club on a water bottle. The clubhead should be near the bottle to balance the shaft. It sounds harder than it actually is. If you want to, you can build a small bench out of a club and two buckets from the range, too. To practice effectively you do not really need any [...]

Stringing it Together / Ladder Putting – Short Game Putting Drill

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Two aspects are vital for successful putting – direction and distance. The harder part is usually to have the proper distance. This drill will help you master this area of your putting game. All you need is a couple of three feet long strings (five to six will do). Place these strings on a putting green evenly spaced (about three feet apart) one after the other. Your goal now is to putt into each space. Try to roll your first ball just over the very first string, so that [...]

11 Balls – Effective Short Game Chipping Drill

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Working on your weakest parts has the best chances for you to improve the most in the shortest amount of time. Nevertheless many people tend to work mostly on what they are good at. This drill will let you see where you are at with your short game while practising.

Chipping Chain – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! You probably already know that you don not want your chip shots landing right next to the flag. You want them to land on the green and roll towards the flag. So to hole chipping shots you have to be precise with your landing spots. This exercise will help you to develop a feel for the kind of accuracy you should be striving for. Go to the chipping green and take 5 to 10 balls out of your bag. But you do not try to hole your first ball. [...]
