How he does it

If there is one area of Marc Leish­man’s game he likes to stay on top of it is his short game. At The Open Cham­pi­onship, where he fin­ished sixth, and af­ter his sec­ond vic­tory of the year at the BMW Cham­pi­onship, he talked about work­ing hard to keep his short game sharp.

For a big guy, Leish­man has soft hands that serve him well around the greens, which is why he was able to get up-and­down 72.13 per­cent of the time (be­tween 10 and 20 yards off the green) dur­ing the 2017 sea­son.

If you want to save shots around the greens, you too should grip the club softly with a con­stant grip pres­sure. The big­gest mis­take a lot of am­a­teurs make when chip­ping is they grip the club too tightly. Light­en­ing the grip will re­lieve any ten­sion in your arms and make it eas­ier to em­ploy a ba­sic chip­ping ac­tion.
