RORY’S SHORT GAME SE­CRETS

With Michael Ban­non – the only coach Mcil­roy has ever had

Golf Asia - - GOLFING INSTRUCTION - WORDS MICHAEL BAN­NON, WITH CHRIS BERTRAM PIC­TURES GETTY IM­AGES

Even the very best play­ers miss the tar­get some­times, and that in­cludes Rory. He might have one of the best long games we’ve seen in golf’s mod­ern era but, trust me, he works hard on his short game – be­cause he knows he will need it to win tour­na­ments. Even when he is play­ing at his ab­so­lute best he knows he will need to save par at some point in a round. And of course even when he is find­ing greens in reg­u­la­tion, he still needs to putt well. If you can turn three into two like he of­ten does – or per­haps four into three if your short game is a re­ally weak part of your game – your scores will plum­met. Over the next few pages, I’ll give you lit­tle tips to help you chip bet­ter, es­cape bunkers more pro­fi­ciently and hole more putts.
