Learning From The Best Golfer Steve Stricker (Video)

Now if you are a golfer that watches a little bit of golf on the TV, it’s fair to say that most people that watch the PGA Tour have probably got a favorite player. For a lot of people it’s the exciting players, the big bombers, the Bubba Watsons, the Rory McIlroys, even Tiger Woods. You know these golfers are exciting to watch, they make exciting things happen on the golf course, but they're not always the best people for you to emulate in your game particularly unless you're very good at playing out of the trees. You know you look at somewhere where Bubba Watson hits the tee ball to; I don’t know it got fancy to get myself out of those positions very regularly. But then again if you look like – look at a golfer like Steve Stricker, how often would you like to have his tee ball? But more often than not Steve Stricker is going to keep that ball in play, not just in play, he hits it a reasonable distance not massive, he’s probably going to be behind Bubba Watson, but he's in play. Quite often he's going to be on the right side of the fairways while actually leaving you a nice reproach shot into the green. And when it comes into that approach, it’s going to go middle of the green or the safe side rather than taking on risky pin positions and then we all should now start to appreciate how good Stricker is with the putter as well. So maybe next time you go and play golf, play a little bit less Bubba Watson, a little bit more Steve Stricker. You know if you you’ve watched Bubba on the TV drive off everything, shaping the ball off everything, trying to knock it power fours, trying to know it on power fives and to curving the ball up and over trees and around trees and quite often through trees. If you watch the Steve Stricker approach, its a bit more down the middle, maybe three wood, maybe high a bit club off the tee to the safer side of the fairway, hit the approach shot onto the front edge of the green or to the side of the green to not risk taking the flag on. And then just roll a good putt down, top a good putt in; mark a little power on the scorecard. So maybe if you play a little bit more Steve Stricker, a little bit more Bubba Watson, you'll have a more enjoyable game, your scores might be a little bit lower, and I guarantee you'll have more golf balls left in your bag by the time you finish the round. 2015-10-15
