Drive, Chip and Putt – like Duf.

First things first: If you were dis­ap­pointed with your last round, your last few rounds, heck, your last golf sea­son—it’s time to let it go. You’ve got to put things be­hind you when you’re not hav­ing the suc­cesses you want. Case in point: I shot 65-65 in the first two rounds of the Me­mo­rial Tour­na­ment in 2017 but fol­lowed with a 77 on Satur­day— a huge let­down. De­ter­mined not to let it hap­pen again on Sun­day, I got the bad feel­ings out of my sys­tem by hit­ting balls and putting for a bit. Next day, I shot 68 and won the tour­na­ment. See what I’m say­ing? Quickly write off your bad days and reboot your game with the fun­da­men­tals. That’s what I want to share with you here. If you can hit your tee shots bet­ter, chip bet­ter and, cer­tainly, putt bet­ter, you can turn things around re­ally fast. Let me give you a few point­ers to work on as you pre­pare for next sea­son. Never un­der­es­ti­mate the value of sound fun­da­men­tals—and some pos­i­tive think­ing.—WITH
