To improve your short game, try this exercise during your practice:
- Pick 9 locations from around the green to play from: 3 easy, 3 medium and 3 difficult.
- Each mini hole is a par 2. By playing all 9 holes, the total is ‘Par 18’
- Play all 9 holes, and keep your score. Make 18 your target.
Although I don’t ever recommend trying to beat your score during a round, in practice it’s different. You want to create the same pressure as if you were on the golf course, whereas on the golf course it’s ideal to minimise pressure. By thinking about your score while practicing (and trying to beat it), you get closer to the pressure you feel on the course.
Hopefully these tips will help you improve your game!
