Question: I’ve decided to really make an effort to lower my handicap this year. What is the best way to reach my goal of consistently shooting lower scores?
Answer: This is an easy one. The ONLY answer is to IMPROVE YOUR SHORT GAME. Approximately 65% of all strokes played during a round are taken from inside 100 yards. Building a reliable short game will pay immediate dividends and provides the payoff of measurable results in the form of lower scores.
At Briar Leaf, I put golfers through the “Red Zone Challenge” that addresses the following areas of the short game: Wedge Play, Bunker Play, Pitching, Chipping, Long Putting and Short Putting. The Red Zone is a 4-week program where we take initial ability assessments, develop practice drills to address weaknesses, dedicate one private lesson to short game only and then follow up with another ability assessment at the end of the program. With the Red Zone Challenge, players can see measurable improvement in their short game which translates into lower scores!
If you’re serious about making 2013 your best year ever on the course, call me at Briar Leaf at 326-1992 and let’s get started on your own “Red Zone Challenge.” It’s the quickest pathway to guaranteed lower scores!
