Practice Your Golf Short Game
Here is some advice for you kids when you go out to practice. Most kids that I know of when they go out to the range and only have an hour to practice they are going to spend about 90 nine point nine percent of their time at the driving range and most of the time trying to hit that driver. You need to practice like a pro does. Pros spend more time practicing their short game than they do on their long game.
Use a Variety of Clubs When Hitting golf balls on the Range
But the point is that if you have an hour to practice what I would like to see you do is you can spend a half hour on that range hitting balls, hitting all the clubs then you can hit your driver, but I want you to spend at least half of your time over on the putting green working on your putting, your chipping and your pitching. There is not a kid out there that I know of that can hit a golf ball. What is going to separate you from those other kids out there is how well you play the short game. With that said take it from the pros. The pros spend about 70 percent of their time when they practice on shots which are 100 yards or less into the green, which are less than full shots for them. If they are doing it that is what you need to do to improve your golf game.
