Video Golf Tip | Landing Area - Short Game

An area that I think most golfers can improve on is hitting their landing area when they play golf and especially when they practice golf. If you watch the best players in the world they consistently land the ball in the same place every time, when they play and when they practice. The average golfer, they land it different places every time. When you go out and practice, if you look right here, I have placed I white disc on the green, get yourself a pile of balls and practice being consistent at landing the ball in the same area every time. So this white disc is my target and I can think of a three foot circle around it. I want to be more consistent landing the ball in the same place every time. I am going to set up and hit one for you, aiming at the white disc. That was a good one, I landed it right there, got a good shot to my target. Now I am going to set up and try to duplicate my shot. That one was a little lower, I carried it too far, so I want to self correct, make the next one better. That was real good right there. What I want to do on my next one is try to duplicate that shot trying to be consistent at hitting the landing area. That one I carried a little far. The next time you go out and practice, pick a target, lay something out there in your landing area, it could be a tee, bag tag, whatever you want to use to give you something to hit at, and try to be more consistent at hitting your landing area time after time. If you practice that way your short game will really improve.
