Most golfers irrespective of handicap would like to shoot lower scores. Here are some suggestions for getting that handicap down with very little effort.
Off the Tee
Add one inch to your three wood grip and use it instead of your driver. Many players add quite a considerable amount to their score total because of difficulties in hitting their driver consistently off of the tee.
The extra loft on the three wood club face makes it easier to hit on a regular basis.
The extra inch will compensate for any length lost by not using their driver.
You can in fact use your three wood off the tee without adding any length onto the shaft.
One of Australia’s greatest professionals played his entire career using a 3 wood instead of his driver.
Use a junior length putter. Pro shops today all stock short shafted putters. The line is easier to read and I personally think that a short putter gives a far better feel for distance. If you have never considered using a short putter before give it a go. The results might surprise you.
Here is a suggestion that might also surprise you.
For bunker play, use a junior length sand wedge.
A 56 year old golfer who always had difficulty with bunker play used his grandson’s sand wedge to extricate himself from a deep bunker “sand trap” and he played the shot perfectly.
From that day on he always played with a shortened sand wedge . He stated that he became a reasonable bunker player because mentally, with the short shaft, he felt he was scooping the ball out with a big spoon. Why not give it a try.
