TIP FOR THE WEEK: SHORT GAME DRILL
Your short game practice should be 3 times the amount of time you work on your full swing. Here is a drill I like to do when I need to sharpen my short game: Start off with a small chip from 5 to 10 yards from the greens edge. Pick out four separate pins to shoot to, your focus should be where you want
the ball to land, and run out past the pin 3 to 4 feet. Use a cone or some sort of obstacle to chip over 5 to 6 feet in front of your ball for each shot. Hit 5 to 10 balls to all four targets. After you have completed your chip shot from 5 to 10 yards, move back 10 yards and continue the drill, moving back 10 yards each time until you have a 50 yard pitch. Your goal should be grouping your shots to within 8 feet or closer for every shot. Good Luck and Good Practicing.

The metalwood innovations, which have made your Driver a much easier club to wield to good effect, have been passed on to the Fairway Woods. In addition you will have noticed adverts proclaiming “Improved turf interaction”, manufacturer speak for “we’ve made it more difficult for you to dig the club into the turf and we’ve reduced the
impact the contact with the turf has on your club head speed, should you make contact between sole and turf before you strike the ball”.
But the innovation I most like, is the one that helps you get the ball airborne much more easily.
The ability to use different materials in the same head and to shave thickness off the head face and walls, has allowed the designers to reduce the weight in the crown and replace it into the sole. The result is a ball that launches higher (as it should), and, as a result of being drilled out of the sweet spot, the ball will travel much
I am not sure that many golfers have discovered these benefits. Most bags seem to carry modern Drivers and Hybrids, but remain burdened by older Fairway Woods the golfer rarely uses.
That’s a shame, because a modern Fairway Wood offers more shot options. One of those options is off the Tee, especially when accuracy is called for. The shorter shaft, together with the lower sweet spot and larger hitting, area means the #3 Wood offers a better alternative on these holes, than the

Please put the Fairway Wood back in your bag and please make the most of it for your game. Whether you want a club that delivers distance off the tee with more accuracy (courtesy of a shorter shaft) or a club that offers you opportunity on Par 5’s and longer Par 4’s, take advantage of a club the manufacturers have made easier to
