Tennis Drill for Chipping

Tennis Drill for Chipping

This is a very good pitching game called tennis. The aim of this game is to have a practice buddy. Some of the best fun you will ever have around the short game area is if you are practicing in a competitive mode. That simulates the sort of pressure and experiences you feel out on the golf course. You are going to have a realistic target, you will have a match going and it’s a lot of fun. You can spend hours out there practicing with a friend, and the longer you spend out there in the short game area the better your scoring is going to be. The object of this game is that the person serving gets to hit two balls and pick the best of his two balls. The person receiving only gets one ball and that is why it is a bit like tennis, it puts you under a lot more pressure trying to break the person’s serve. The scoring is the same as tennis, 15-love, 30-love, 40-love, then deuce. On deuce we have sudden death. So to three different targets around the pitching green, playing a set of tennis and picking different targets every day it will not be too long before you are really starting to pick those pins off out on the course and lower your scores. Peter’s going to hit two shots here first, he is serving, and that is a little bit short but it does not matter it’s his first serve. Now he has done a little bit better on his second serve there, so he gets to count his best shot which is about eight feet short of the pin. Now I get to chip mine and the score is now love-15. Peter serves again and at the end of this game we alternate, I then pick a target and serve, hitting two shots, pick my best and then he receives. It is a great fun game which will definitely improve your scoring, which is what it is all about, how many hits you have out on the golf course.
