:: Intermediate Tips :: No More Short Putts

Let the Club do the Work
by Johnathan Yarwood

Many beginners man-handle the club and do not allow it to do the work and swing. They end up having more planes than Lufthansa! To generate speed, power and accuracy you need to allow the club to do it's job and swing freely and at the correct angle. A club that is allowed to swing freely will remain in balance and on-plane more. A great drill is to take the correct grip and posture. Now put your feet together and grip the club lightly. Simply swing the club trying to keep your balance. You should feel like the club is light and in balance and the wrists hinging back and through. Then gradually widen your feet and let the body get pulled around by the swinging of the club. Try this and decrease those planes to one! 10 minutes before you play. You take a lot more shots in a round of golf around the green than with the long game. If you hit it poorly, you can make up for it with a good short game. If you hit it well and your short game is good you can shoot some great scores. So it is important that you practice them just before you play. Get yourelf tuned into the green speed and your landing areas before you play. Hit ten bunker shots, pitches to various distances, chips and putts of various lengths. You will be ready to play and take it low as a result.
