Just went OCC to test out new driver. Bought TM burner 2 @ GD.
Can get better accuracy then old FT-3. Normally my Wednesday session is on upper deck with colleagues.

I thought NSRCC is for members only?
My colleague told me just park the car, take the wedges and balls. Walk to the practice green.
The staffs will not ask for the membership card... Smile

Kranji? even better, no car park charges.

For me, one way to learn short game is use one club, and try to go for different targets in range.

Hi enwee,

I am somewhat dead when it comes to anything below 50m.
Need to practice more. And choose a method. "Chip and run" or "chip and land direct"

Hi All Golfers,

I am new in this forum but not new in golf. Have been playing golf since 12 years ago. 4 years of social games, 4 years of no golf at all due to oversea assignment and now 4 years of seriousness in golf.

Member of NSRCC and sometimes played in Tanjong putri or Horizon hill.

Have a nice golfing days.

Hi, my advice is to get it past the fringe and let the green take over. it is not easy to consider chip and run or chip and bite. when you want it to bite it run, when you want it to run it bite.

Try 6 iron for chip and run. Land ball 25 % of the distance and run 75%.

Regards

@yob_ha, actually depending on situation. occasionally I may even used hybrid to chip and run. Can be effective if your pin is at the back and going up slope.

But, imho, hop and stop it's hard to control unless you are using something like pro Vs type of balls, so far I try those distance balls, omg....often run off green. maybe I not good enough.

Finally it still come down to practice, practice and practice.

Thanks for the guides....

It really boils down to practice...
Used to be able to chip and run to like 3-4ft from pin on green if i am 20m away.
But last week game was disastrous... totally lost the feel...
Really need more drilling of this part of the game.
