The Importance of the Short Game
The short game is everything! Its proven that the majority of the game takes place within 100 yards. Putting plays a big part, but so does the short game. Would you rather face a 12-footer for par or a 3-footer? The more you can improve your game around the green, the less pressure you'll have to put on your putting.
But improving your short game is not about hitting full wedge shots at the range. There are timeless fundamentals you must learn first, before you can build upon those and truly get creative with this part of the game. After watching this video, you'll know which shot to hit, how to hit it, and how to make sure it rolls up nice and close to the hole.
Steve Elkington has been fortunate to have played with some of the greatest short game artists ever, like Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, and many others. And now, he's passing that wisdom along through Tour Quality Short Game.
