The short game is usually the first thing to go after the winter and a long layoff. Use your ingenuity to keep your hands, eyes, and body sharp. Practice chipping, pitching, and putting on your carpet to a coffee mug or a putting cup in your living room. You can even putt on your garage floor. You would be surprised how much your touch and feel improve!!! Try to focus on grip pressure…light is good. Take full swings in your backyard or garage. Repetition builds trust, trust brings confidence, and confidence builds consistency. The added bonus to all this is it that it takes you away from what’s going on in the world, and will make you a better player down the road!!! KEEP SWINGING!!! That’s what I tell my students.
