Build a short game that will give you the edge… ev­ery time

Today's Golfer (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Think back to the last few Ry­der Cups and we hear a fa­mil­iar re­frain from the los­ing team: “They just holed more putts than us”. We can ex­pand that to the per­for­mance of the two teams both on and around the greens; vic­to­ri­ous match play­ers in­vari­ably pos­sess ra­zor-edged short games that get the job done at the busi­ness end of a hole, se­cur­ing un­likely halves or steal­ing wins. That’s why we have ded­i­cated the fol­low­ing 12 pages to im­prov­ing your match play per­for­mance, es­pe­cially your short game. You will learn tech­niques for four cru­cial shots, each one cho­sen for its abil­ity to put pres­sure on your op­po­nent and spin match play mo­men­tum in your favour. And some of the best match play­ers ever – in­clud­ing seven-time World Match Play cham­pion Ernie Els, plus sev­eral mem­bers of the Ry­der Cup team – of­fer their ad­vice.
