Ask any good player and he or she will tell you that the key to shooting lower scores is having a solid short game. Sure, it’s fun to crush balls off the tee, but unless you know how to navigate the all-important shots around the green with proficiency, the distance of your tee shots matters next to nothing if you can’t get up and down.
In the latest Tour Validated episode (below), DJ Lantz and True Spec‘s Kris McCormack step outside the studio and talk all things short game. They begin with advice on greenside bunker play, with insights on wedge design and the features that matter most for amateur players. Lantz and McCormack then tackle the hybrid chip and learn the simple steps to keeping the ball low from just off the green. Finally, check out what Kris calls the “no-brainer putt,” and learn how it can help you improve your putting in a hurry.
