July Clinics: Scoring Zone

Scoring Zone Clinic:

Reducing Three Putts Clinic

The putter is the most important club in your bag. It’s the club that you use more often than any other club. A hot putter is what makes a champion. The physical aspects of putting look simple, but every player knows that putting is more than just a physical task. The mechanics of putting must work in combination with a player’s visual skills, powers of imagination, and level of confidence. The mental art of putting is the true challenge in putting. Putting, more than the long game, is a test of a player’s emotional stability and patience.

Chipping and Putting

As numerous studies have shown, an improved short game is the fastest way to lower your scores. In the average round approximately 65% of your strokes are directly related to one of the four short game components: putting, chipping, pitching or bunker play.  The average golfer throws away eight to 12 shots per round due to a poor short game. If you just cut those errors in half, your handicap would drop dramatically.

It’s no secret that the most successful players on the PGA Tour typically have the best short games, so if you want to lower your handicap, it’s time to spend less time hitting balls and more time around the practice green.
