Short Game Tips, What Type Of Golf Course Should I Play To Sharpen My Short Game? (Video)

What sorts of golf course should I play to sharpen my short game? So here we’re going to look at – the sort of correct approach to have to sharpening your short game when you’re out in the golf course. And the best advice I could give you with this question would be play a par 3 course. A par 3 course simply has just par 3 holes. So shorter holes you’re really going to be focused on hitting your irons into the green and to make a good score around the par 3 course, you need to be making sure that you’re either hitting the green with every iron shot or if you do miss the green that you are able to chip really well and hold a put. So making a three on a par 3 takes quite a lot of skill and it’s just going to show where your game is at that time.

So sharpening up the short game, if you can chip and put well, you’re going to score really well on the usual golf course. What you don’t want to do to sharpen your short game is going to play at the championship length course. A championship length course is a much, much longer course where you would be focused more on hitting the driver, more on hitting the fairway woods. So yes obviously you will play a chip in a put but not necessarily as much as you would if you’re playing a par 3 course. So go to a par 3, there are some fantastic ones about – that are solely par 3’s only. It takes the woods, it takes the longer shorts out of your game and gets you hitting those irons, and gets you pitching well, gets you hitting chips; bunker shots and then a hole in one putt, so work on doing that. If you have a par 3 course near to you, what I suggest you do is go to your local club and go to the short game area and then around the green just create some very small many holes that you could play, which I’d call par two. So literally stand in the middle of the green, take nine balls, throw the balls in completely different areas and in completely different distances off the green and then play each ball in turn back into the hole. So play the shot that you are faced with, it might be a shot chip and run, it could be a 20 yard pitch, you might have played the ball in to the bunker. Play that shot and then play the hole out. So now take the putter complete the hole and write the score down that you get for that hole. But what you’re trying to do there is play a par 2. And you will find that will also sharpen in your short game up. But if you have got a par 3 course near to you, go to that, you can play slightly longer irons in to the green and then chip and putt and really will sharpen the short game.
