Short Game

Chip to save your scoring“!

Included in the step by step education program outlined in the student booklet (syllabus) there is a complete program for the game On and Around the Green.

Have you read THE BIG PICTURE, what putting has to do with scoring on the Putting Zone page? Then you will understand the importance of your game around the green. Bad shortgame – Bad scoring! Simple!

To practise with paralell shafts gives an am orientation in chipping

Parallel shafts play a part in learning to aim properly

The short game instruction is divided up into relevant sections so we can build your movements around the correct fundamentals.

Chipping, putt-chip, pitching, different lies and which clubs to use for various shots are all covered.

The short game is a very important part of your game as this is where you can save a lot of shots. I will instruct you on the grips (yes there are different grips for chipping, putt-chip) required for different shots around the green and the different ball positions to achieve various shots and ball flights. Everything from Basic chip & runs to lob shots will be addressed.

Once the technique is understood you will, with a little practise, find the right motion for the different shots. Remember the golden rule: Minimum Airtime – Maximum Ground Time.

WEDGE PLAY / Distance control

There is no specific definition of distances for short game and a good rule is: from the distance of a full Pitching Wedge to the green. Therefore it differs from person to person (for example 60 – 100 meters).

For distance control we use different lofts on our wedges. PW, GAP, SW, LW and can also uses different sizes of the swing to control it. All swings has to be done in a repeated  and controlled tempo so you after some practice know how long the ball will carry and from there it gets easier to score well.
