Gary Woodland has always been a great ball striker . Over the last couple of years he’s focused more on the scoring elements of his game. He actually has two short game coach’s. One for putting and one for chipping pitching and bunker play. Phil Kenyon and Pete Cowen.
His short game improvements have freed him up on the course to be more aggressive in certain situations and take advantage of his length. We saw this in the final round of the U.S Open. On the 14 hole he went for the green on the par 5 and hit a great shot just off the green and got up and down for a birdie. On the 17 hole we all saw his amazing touch, playing l a pitch shot over the edge of the green from the fringe to a few feet to seal the championship.
