Kevin Morris recommends that golfers need to spend more time working on their short game; in general people spend too much time practicing with their driver. Fota Island Golf Resort Ireland has a very impressive short game practice facility which will help improve your short game to no end.

Three useful tips for your short game:

Putt when possible (meaning whenever the ball will roll rather than bounce). Chip and run when you can’t putt. And finally, pitch only when you have no other choice.

Golfers should practice out of bad lies, from uneven lies, or other short game situations where skill is lacking. There is no point doing the things your good at, this won’t help to improve your game. You need to challenge yourself! You should determine your strengths and weaknesses around the green and work from here as a starting point.

A large percentage of your short game ideally would be played with chip-and-run. Getting the ball on the ground and rolling as soon as possible is key to knowing how the ball will behavior.

I hope the weather holds out, Happy Paddys day, might not be a bad day out for a relaxing round.
