“In order to sharpen up your short game, go out to the course at the end of the day and play it like a par-3 layout. Play your first shot on the par 4’s and par 5’s from within 150 yards. Think of the sequence of shots that you want to take and avoid trouble. By taking this approach you will realize how important the short game is.”
