Short Game Tips

Improve Your Short Game With These Tips


One of the biggest problems for high handicap golfers is there short game.


It isn’t that they don’t know what to do, but it is having the patience and confidence in yourself to execute the shot.


Here are three tips to better your chip shots.

  1. Take your time: One of the biggest problems with high handicap golfers is when they get around the green they think they are PGA Tour players and they swing away. That helps put spin on the ball but you aren’t good so this never works out. Slow down and make a clean pass of the ball. This will help your chip shots a lot.

  2. Club selection: It is not the smartest idea to pull out a lob wedge, when you’re barely into the rough. Situation golf is one of the biggest things that seems to come with experience. Bumping and running is a great low risk high reward shot for when you’re near the green.

  3. Keep your head down: this is more form than anything. Once you get a little confidence and start hitting good shots this can set you back even more. Once you see yourself hit a few good shots you get so excited to see your shot you look up when you hit the shot and this can tend for you to skull the shot. So once you start hitting good shots, remember your basic things and keep your head down.


The short game can make or break your game. You can gain a lot of strokes, but you can also lose a bunch of strokes by skulling the ball back and forth over the green. Take your time, take a deep breath and start holing out more shots and lowering your scores.
