Tips of the Month

01 June - 31 July 2018

Putting drill

The string drill

The situation: You must find the flattest 3 meters putt as possible.

This drill will be very helpful for 3 important points:

1. Your aiming

2. Your swing path

3. Your visualization

 

  • Set up your ball below the string. The string must cut your ball in his middle.
  • Play trying to keep your putter bellow the string and in the same line or slightly inside.
  • The string will help you to visualize the perfect trajectory.

 

 

MARCH 2018

Get more variation in your Chip shots with different clubs!

A common misunderstanding while chipping is that you always have to do it with one club. Most of the players like to use only a Sand Wedge or a Pitching Wedge for Chipping.


Using different clubs will allow you to control the relation between ball flight and ball roll.
I would advice you to try and use an 8 iron, a PW and a SW.


On this 15 meter chip, a towel is used to mark the spot you want to land the ball

 

IRON 8

In this first case, the towel is 5 meters away from the ball and 10 meters away from the flag.

This is a ratio of 1 part flight and 2 part roll.

Take your 8 iron and forget about the Pin, just try and land the ball on the towel. You will see that the ball nicely rolls out to the Pin

 

PITCHING WEDGE


In this second case the towel is 7,5 meters away from the ball and 7,5 meters in front of the pin.


This is a ratio of 1 part flight and 1 part roll.


Take your Pitching Wedge and forget about the Pin, just try to land the ball on the towel.
You will see that the ball takes of and then nicely rolls out to the Pin

 

SAND WEDGE


In this third case the towel is 10 meters away from the ball and 5 meters in front of the pin.


This is a ratio of 2 parts flight and 1 part roll.


Take your Sand Wedge and forget about the Pin, just try to land the ball on the towel.


You will see that the ball takes of higher and then rolls out to the Pin just a bit

 

Practice these different chips on the Chipping area and always be aware, it is probably easier to hit a landing spot close to you then one in a distance. So if you can, let it roll! To a point that you might want to use the Putter in some cases.


Remember play low win high
