Short Game Experience Days in association with Mizuno

The Short Game…without question is the area of the game where there is the ability to compile good scores or not, yet many golfers fail to work on this area of their game as much. So why is that? The most common reason is that golfers aren’t quite sure what to practice in the short game, because most misunderstand the principle of the short game. The Short Game Experience Days, in association with Mizuno, will focus not only on teaching a great technique, but give a far greater knowledge of the short game, in particular what should be done when faced with very different shots. This knowledge alone will see a huge improvement in each individual’s short game and consequentially the overall scores.

To dispel the myths and misconceptions surrounding the short game I have devised a programme to instruct, teach and coach players of all standards, the itinerary of which follows:

Short Game Experience Days

Dates are – 

8th, 9th, 10th July or 13th, 14th, 15th July

£35 per day or £90 for all three

Day One – Chipping

Learn a fantastic technique for chipping and develop skills in assessing a chip shot correctly, which in turn will give better and more consistent results.

9.00am – Registration
9.15am – A discussion about wedges to establish what wedges are best for the individual player and then a collective discussion to see how chipping is perceived
9.45am – Set up and the Flail/Lag technique. The Flail technique is the method that I built into my own game, ensuring that my hands pass the ball before the club makes contact: this is Lag. This will create the perfect impact position for all the various types of chip shots that you could ever wish to hit, whilst ensuring those duff chips are a thing of the past.
11.30am – Coffee break
12.00pm – Continue working on the Flail technique
1.00pm – Lunch break
2.00pm – Strike and landing zones (piecing the technique together and working on that all important strike, before working on landing zone ability)
4.00pm – Day 1 finish

Day Two – Chipping

9.00am – Continuation from Day 1; working on strike and landing zones
10.00am – A discussion about how to manipulate the club face when chipping and understanding ball position to create a low running chip and a lob/pop shot
11.15am – Coffee break
11.45am – Continuing to work on playing the various chips and landing zone practice
1.00pm – Lunch Break
2.00pm – Look at how to assess a chip correctly from the lie; the correct shot; choosing the correct club and executing it.
4.00pm -Day 2 finish

Day 3 – Pitching/Back Spin

Great pitching isn’t that hard; it is made more demanding by the perception of what should be done. Change the perception and tweak the technique, and watch the ball spinning!

9.00am – Registration
9.15am – A discussion about pitching in order to understand exactly what is required in set up and technique to obtain back spin when pitching
9.45am – Learning the correct set up and technique for successful pitching
11.30am – Coffee Break
12.00pm – More work on technique for pitching
1.00pm – Lunch Break
2.00pm – Pitching into greens and watching as the ball starts to spin
4.00pm – Day 3 finish


Course management Day – Dates out shortly

See your scores come down in one day!

The idea of these days is not to change your whole game but to simply make what you have more effective – shoot lower scores. You all have the ability to play lower than what your handicap is without changing too much in your game – how? By how you play the game, by how you think, picking the correct shot etc, and this is what these days are all about. You probably lose anywhere between 2-15 shots per round by poor course management!! Not after attending one of these days, as better course management will directly improve your scores.

The days itinerary will be as follows

8.30am – 5 Hole assessment – On these first five hols of the day I will be analysing everything about your game from where you aim, to club/shot choice, to how well you recover from a poor shot and how effective your short game is.

9.45am – Coffee break where I will go through individually what you need to work on.

10.15am – You will now spend some time working on your long game and routine, as improving this will see you hit great shots more often and will even improve your bad ones.

11.45am – 5 Holes – This time you will be putting your shot choice and routine to the test, where you would expect to see an improvement in the amount of good shots you hit, but more importantly, less wayward poor ones.

1.00pm – Lunch break

2.00pm – Short game – You will be working on your skills to select the best shot for the situation you find yourself in, from – where to land the ball, what club to use and you will also work on improving your strike for these game saving shots.

3.00pm – 5 Holes – The last 5 holes where you will start to put it all together and start to see your game improving and the all important scores coming down.

These days will be for groups of four. If you can get four of you together, then book in for a day that suits you or book in on one of the selected dates and we will make you up into fours.

This is a great day for everyone to attend and I’m only going to charge the cost of a one hour lesson as I want everyone to benefit from these days – £45pp.

These can be organised for any day of the week, (inc weekends) just let me know and I will arrange a day with you or look below for organised dates.


Be quick as I will only take four people each day.
