Short-game tweaks that re­ally pay off

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best - By alex fisher

ut­ting the time in to im­prove your full swing is im­por­tant, but for pure re­turn on prac­tice in­vest­ment, the short game is where you’ll get the quick­est de­duc­tion from your scores. You hit more of th­ese kinds of shots than any other, and the fixes and ad­just­ments re­quired are things any player can han­dle phys­i­cally. Make th­ese changes to your pitch­ing and chip­ping and spend an hour at the short-game prac­tice area at your course, and you’ll be hit­ting it closer to the hole more con­sis­tently by this week­end. Best of all, you can do it with the clubs you al­ready have in your bag. – with matthew rudy
