I do accelerate through the down but previously I had an issue with stance thats why kept scuttering the ball past the green. Recently changed my stance and ball position.. better contact now.. not topping my chips as often.

I use only wedge for chipping at the moment although sometimes use the hybrid (flat base just use like putter no need worry about chomping or topping). When playing bet I will use putter for fringe. If play with family, I will use wedge as practice.

Bro, if u can keep ur driver on fairway and with decent iron shots, I can say u have no prob in breaking 90. U just need to focus on those 100m and below shots.

The key to wedge shots is commit and accelerate, do not decelerate, else u are likely to top. Use diff loft to control distance. For me, a 60 degree for 55m, 52 degree for 75m etc.

For chipping, do not use use hands, u need a bit of rotation too. Use just 1 club for chipping. Once u are proficient, then learn to play with loft

As for fringe shot, putt it. There is no need to chip. Throw ur ego away.

For putting, improve ur lag putting first. Learn to putt near.
For shot putts with break, give much more break allowance, for short slight break, putt firm. U have to experiment urself.

Last but not least, take this with a pinch of salt from a high hcp. All the best

The long game is to help keep you out of trouble.
The short game is for scoring.

You need a good wedge game to score.
GIRs are of course good, but even the strong single h'cappers don't GIR every hole. But around the greens, it's wedge/chip for birdie or par...

Ya.. also take with a pinch of salt from a social weekend golfer.

Thanks for the tips Bro. For strength control, I understand that this means practice practice practice to get muscle memory and stroke consistency? There are various putting drills online (e.g. putt 10 balls, each 1 slightly further than the prior, all within 10ft)

Go look for Justin han if u want short game. Keeping the club face open or close after the shot makes a lot of difference. There are a few strong single hcp players inside here but they will never admit. Short game needs a lot d practise and also how u read your games. And for putting, go for strength control first instead of thinking of holing the putts. By strength control, it doesn't mean slowing ur putting stroke.

Not really muscle memory. Ability to adapt to greens is a key. For me, I need to hit the practise green to get a feel of the speed. U dun need a hole to practise putting, just putt one ball to the other.

without the penalties, u would have broken 90.....

if u can work towards 36 putts/round..... u can easily play low-mid 80s

well done.....

Very well done buweeza.

Esp since GIR is only 5/18. Definitely shows chipping is performing well. Good plan on working on putting. Easy low hanging fruits for reducing strokes, judging from your stats. Improving GIR is another area to look into after that.

Congrats. 90 is just a number from now on. Breaking it is a given.
