Titleist Tips | Five Words for a Better Short Game

From Skip Guss On September 22, 2020

In this video, Titleist Staff Member Skip Guss, owner of GolfRite in Southborough, Massachusetts, explains that there's much more to the short game than executing a given shot. In Skip's approach,... execution is just one step among five in a greater process that is guided by five key words:

  • Analyze
  • Plan
  • Commit
  • Execute
  • Review

Most amateurs jump right to the execution phase when they play a short wedge shot, but dedicating yourself to all five disciplines is the key to real improvement.

Watch as Skip demonstrates three stock short game shots - a chip, a pitch and a lob - and see how tossing golf balls will help you to visualize trajectory, the most important aspect of properly analyzing a short game shot.
