Improve Your Chances of Chipping It In

Chipping-in is my favorite surprise on the golf course. While you don’t usually expect a chip to go in – when it does – it can quickly give your round a boost. You may never get to a point where you’re chipping-in consistently, but, there’s a few things you can do to improve your chances.   #1 Pick the Right Time Some chip shots are more likely to be made

How to Make Short Putts Under Pressure

As an experienced golfer, you’re probably pretty confident on your short putts. But when the pressure’s ramped up your short putting might not be as solid (I know that’s often the case for me). Do you get a little tight when you face a short putt under pressure?  It’s okay to admit it – in fact, being honest with yourself and acknowledging that you are nervous is the first step
