Improve Your Contact Around The Green




One way to better your short game around the green is to hit the ball more solidly.  Once you learn to hit the ball solidly, then you will be able to develop a feel for how far your shots will travel.   Here are four ways to hit the ball more solidly.  Whether chipping or pitching, these are easy, simple and effective ways to improve your contact around the green.


  • Your club shaft is FORWARD with the butt end of the grip starting and finishing in front of the ball.
  • Your head should be OVER of the ball position and should stay there through out the swing and doesn’t move up, down or sideways.
  • The back of the LEAD hand should face the target and the club face should face the SKY when the swing is finished.
  • Your club head should finish BELOW your hands.
