Take a quick lesson from someone who knows what he’s talking about and excelled around the greens at the highest level of the pro game. That would be short-game wizard Lee Trevino.
The six-time major winner explains and demonstrates the simple techniques for controlling shot trajectory for a chip or short pitch. He does it in less than two minutes.
“There are only two moves you have to make,” Trevino says, “if you want to hit this ball low or if you want to hit this ball high. And it’s a very simple thing.”
A Hall of Famer, Trevino was a giant slayer who stole majors from Jack Nicklaus and others. His machine-like ball striking and immaculate short game made the difference. Trevino is currently golf pro emeritus at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
In the below USGA video, Lee talks about how he approached playing against the best, which, back in his day, was the Golden Bear.
