Practice Your Golf Game Effectively to Lower Your Scores
CJ: Hey, CJ here.
Let's talk about how to get you to practice effectively.
Remember, we've gone over the setup, we've gone over the causes of bad chip shots, we taught you the drills on what to do.
Now, let's talk about the first drill, or the first exercise.
Let's just put it this way.
Most of the time when you chip, you want to land the ball and get the ball on the green as soon as possible and let it rut out towards the hole.
That's just basic golf instruction 101.
You need a smaller swing to land it right there.
I'm going to put a number to that and there's going to be a reason for this as you see in later videos.
We're going to call this the 95% rule.
What I've got here is I've got two clubs.
The 95% rule states that when you are chipping, you want to land the ball within the first two steps on the green.
I'm going to play a club down.
Now, if you're somewhat new to this game, make this where there's two steps between them.
If you are a better golfer and/or you've been working on this stroke for a while, you can make this a little bit narrower.
What we're looking at here is just basically saying that when we chip we want to land the ball on the green as soon as possible.
Again, we're going to call that the 95% rule.
There will be a 5% rule that will be very important.
All we're going to do here is we're going to take our set up and we're going to try to land five in a row within that area.
Notice I'm goin to hold my finish.
I'm going to ask myself the two questions: Where's my weight? Did I burn myself? My technique was very good there and I landed it within the areas so I'm happy.
I want to do this five times in a row.
If I can do this five times in a row, then what we'll be looking for is I'll change clubs.
I'm going to do this with my most lofted club which is my lob wedge, my 60 degree club.
Then I'm going to do it with my 56, then my 52, then, my pitching wedge 987.
Most of you at home have a job and it doesn't involve golf so therefore you're busy so do this with every other club.
I like to do five in a row.
If you're busy and you have a job, do three in a row.
Lob wedge three in a row within there.
If it hits the shaft in there that counts.
The reason this is important is because you are learning to control your swing and land it in a specific spot.
I've plenty of students that have struggled with this.
This is a lot harder than it seems.
If you can do this, you will be shooting a lot lower scores and the 5% rule will become easy, and we'll have you hitting all different typed of shots.
