would you believe roughly?
Nothing really stinks more than hitting a few awesome shots close to the green and then hitting the ball back and forth over the green and walking off with a HUGE number.
Everyone wants to practice the long shots…the big swings. They want to hit the ball hard and far
Unfortunately not too many golfers learn how to properly hit the short shots. This creates bad habits, inconsistency, high scores and frustration!
Wow! I can’t believe how much more fun the game is when I finally learned how to chip, what the difference between a chip and a pitch was and how to not three putt quite so much.
Drills are an awesome way to ingrain good movements and to make practice more interesting. Here you find a plethora of different drills to try and find your favorite.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
You waste so many shots on the green with 3 and 4 putts!
You are so close and then you are so far! You just have no control of distance
Bunkers! UGH! Fuhgeddaboudit..
Great question and glad you asked! Click this link to check out my story.
With appropriate videos, I give you specific checks to make sure you are doing it all properly. I also tell you how to practice. If you follow the instructions, you will have a fantastic foundation to play great golf. I never, however, discourage private lessons if you can afford them.
I get asked this question all the time. Would you take medical advice from your accountant? Or legal advice from your auto mechanic? Nothing against your husband, but unless he is a golf pro and has experience teaching, I would tell you no.
Good teaching professionals have worked for years fine-tuning how best to evaluate swings and communicate the appropriate course of action. There is a huge difference between executing and communicating how to execute. Most advice you receive from an amateur, no matter how low the handicap, is likely to be his or her own medicine. So proceed with caution.
Oh! I thought you would never ask. Let me put it this way…you hit two of your best shots ever on the hardest hole you have ever played and thoughts of your lowest round EVER crosses your mind. The ball, however, bounced just over the back of the green in the rough and now you have to chip. You swing and the ball sails over the green into the bunker. You furiously swing at the ball and sand flies everywhere but the ball stays in the bunker…two more times. Finally you trickle the ball out and decide to putt through the tall grass. Your ball makes it halfway to the hole and the next putt rolls 10 feet past the hole. You miss the next putt short and tap in for a 10! Does this sound dramatic? Maybe, but I have witnessed it 100’s of times and seen less dramatic scenarios 1000’s of times. I think that you get the point though. No matter how good of a ball striker you may be if you cannot get the ball in the cup you cannot go to the next hole! A decent short game is the key to having fun and scoring lower in golf.
Well, I am going to tell you that you need to get your Doctor’s approval for sure. After you are cleared by your Doctor, nothing I teach you should ever cause you pain or discomfort. Yet if you are uncomfortable there are a few things to consider:
I actually get this comment frequently. Your short game is mini-version of your full swing. The better your little shots and the more you understand the different shots, the better your full swing develops. You do not need to hit pretty or long golf shots to play golf. BUT you have to be able to get the ball in the cup.

Kathy has helped my game considerably by having me focus on a few key elements of my game, explaining why and doing so with patience and humor. Kathy makes it fun! I would recommend her to anyone of any skill level.
Last year as a new golfer I was barely able to hit the ball, understand the rules of golf, or golf course etiquette. Then I signed up for Kathy’s clinics. Since starting with Kathy I have progressed to playing with friends and in tournaments. I am enjoying golf because of Kathy’s instructions and finding success on the golf course. Thank you Kathy I appreciate all you have done and continue to do for me.
