It’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere, that time of year when many of us store our golf clubs in a dark and lonely place. But that doesn’t mean we can’t think about our golf games and the coming golf season. A little indoor practice is also a possibility.
In these two videos, PGA Tour star Rickie Fowler and top golf instructor Butch Harmon discuss how to fix gaps in the game that are common to many golfers. One (above) is chipping over a bunker and the other (below) is holing four-foot putts.
The beauty of this instruction at this moment is that short-game work is the perfect antidote for a long winter. Plus, many of us need this type of focused practice to fix some gaps and get better once the long clubs come out of hibernation.
Grab your putter and hit some short putts into a glass or at some other target. Also consider working on your chipping technique. I bet you’ll be a little more excited about spring.
