Dear Golfer,

In keeping with the my intention and commitment to providing you with the latest and most innovative coaching, I am delighted to announce the dates for the special Summer Short Game Coaching Clinics for the month of June 2022.

Unfortunately, the importance of the Short Game is underestimated by most Golfers as they are generally far more concerning with their driving and hitting the ball further. Whilst this may give them greater short-term enjoyment, it is the Golfer with a reliable short game who will consistently be more successful, at whatever level of the game.

No matter how well you strike the ball at some point the ball has to go into the hole.

You only need to think of the Tour players and their abilities around the green to realise how important this area is in maintaining and creating a good score. The Tour players know that they will not always strike the ball well and it is then that they rely on their short games to make a good enough score to keep them in contention. It is a fact, if we include putting that 66% of all shots played in a round of golf are played from within 100 yards of the hole and your play from this area represents 80% of your real handicap. Therefore, this is the area of your play which will affect directly your ability to score and the results you achieve. It is the quickest way to lower your scores and the part of the game which you practice least! I believe that by looking at and improving these areas, I will help you achieve better understanding of the requirements of the game and better technique in the areas of the game that you need the most. This will lead to better results and more enjoyment from playing your game.

Your short game and your putting can never be too good.
