Getting Your Short Game Improved

Many people do not practice their short game enough because they spend too much time at the driving range trying to perfect a drive.  Using a golf putting green in the backyard will allow for your putting stroke to improve without having to spend time at the range working on the short game.  If a golf alignment mat is also obtained for the backyard, short pitch and chip-type shots onto the putting green can be practiced as well.

“…a fidgety player who addressed the ball as if he could reason with it.”

This quote describes former President Woodrow Wilson’s approach to golf.  While it may seem overdramatized, it truly does sum up how many people approach a shot.  Fidgety.  Too tight.  Inconsistent.  All of these terms could accurately describe how many golfers feel when they approach a shot.  By using golf mats, golf putting greens, and even a golf stance mat, a feel will be developed within one’s swing and they will not have to be inconsistent.
