Short Game & Recovery
- Lots to do, here.
It's an important subject, with many shots to be saved
or gained. But it's one with many variations!
- Recovery: Fairway bunkers,
high shot over trees, low shot under trees, behind a tree or shrub, next
to a tree or shrub--and that's before thinking about intentional hooks
and slices to get out of trouble.
- Short game: Greenside
bunkers (short and long shots), long pitches, bump and run, long chips,
hop and stop, back-upper, off-green putts, off-green iron putts, off-green
Tee to Green
Finding the Right Ball Position
Ball position makes a lot of difference. Because of the way the swing travels
in an arc, it makes the ball go low or high, and contribures to pushes,
pulls, hooks, and slices.
- Keys to the Golf Swing
What started as a short collection of notes is turning into a small book!
(When all the keys are in place, the ball flies
high, long, and straight. And that's a lot more fun!)

- Finding a Good
Teacher (orignally published in Golf
A "good" teacher is the right teacher--right for your ability
level and for your swing. Finding one that's right for your ability level
isn't all that hard. But finding one that's right for your particular swing
is real trick. Even touring professionals have made fatal miscalculations
in that regard, and some previously stellar performers are now struggling.
