Clearly Define Swing Tips for a Refined Short Game

Clearly Define Swing Tips for a Refined Short Game

Information overload is a golfer’s worst enemy. One of golf’s most famous, brilliant, and incredibly accurate quotes comes from the timeless Bobby Jones. He said:

“Competitive golf is played mainly on a five-and-a-half-inch course, the space between your ears.” 

This is not only the case for competitive golf, but easily applies to the amateur ranks as well.

With a combination of the Internet, videos, magazines and books, the information overload of juggling too many tips is just too much for today’s golfers. When these ideas start to pile up, you’ll quickly find yourself in a downward spiral of nightmare rounds of golf thanks to too much technique.


Don’t Confuse Your Strength for Weakness

Trying a swing tip you saw online or in a magazine, or implementing a new swing thought, usually starts with a great sense of optimism and promise. However, we find that this constant hunt for what a player thinks is ‘better’ winds up haunting him/her later on.

While searching for solutions for your so-called “swing flaw,” you’re all too willing to take in all information that you believe is relevant to your issue. Know that this often does more harm than good. You may be tricked into confusing your strengths for weaknesses. 

Break Free Mentally: Here’s the Remedy

What you’re experiencing has a name. Many know it as “paralysis by analysis.”  But don’t worry - there is a cure. Instead of trying to focus on too many things at once, we prescribe for you to hone in on the three key components to a consistently solid short game: Slope, Speed, Line.

On the greens, speed is king. For anything outside of lag territory, giving the ball a chance to go in should be priority number one. We’ve all seen how frustrated professionals get after leaving makable putts short, and your reaction shouldn’t differ.

Whether it’s a short chip, long pitch, or putt, you must recognize the slope of the green. Being a good green reader is the only way to clearly see the line. As you know, good speed + right line = money in the bank. 

Practice Makes Perfect 

As with everything in golf, understanding speed, slope, and line take great dedication and practice. Make the best use of your practice by discovering what the Perfect Putter can do to maximize your performance on the greens.

So the next time you’re on or around the greens during your next round, remember “Speed, Slope, Line, and leave the rest behind.” Keeping these elements in mind will lead to more consistency and higher confidence to come through in the clutch.

Stay Sane Out There!
