Dig your nose for 5 minutes? Based on that, you should be nose digging for about 50 minutes when you play 100 balls. IS that what you do, JT? Remind me not to shake your hands Razz

If UR trigger finger is really bad, you may need an injection by a physician and hand massage therapy.

Mine went away--miraculously--after about two months.

I just avoided hitting the woods and long irons for a few weeks.

Just worked on putting and short chipping until it healed.

Actually for me, it is only after I got this trigger finger then I seriously learnt how to grip light and relax swing.

Cos I do still wana practise though with trigger finger in the past.
So, I go ahead with a light mind - just wanting to get the sweet spot. Very Happy

Jake, your digging nose relaxing therapy don't work..
U still get trigger finger but for digging nose 50 minutes. Laughing
Also, you get a free cosmetic surgery - jacky chan nose cyclops

Not just your fingers are giving you problem. Apparently you have not looked at yourself in the mirror lately. Your eyes are red, face white and bleeding somemore. Scary man. lol!

Yep, you have to go to the counter and pay to use the chip and putt section. I find it crazy that they charge so much.

No, it's in the area where the 1st/10th teeboxes are. It's free for golfers who have played to play the course BUT only before they start and NOT after their game.

Can practice there until a MBGC marshall notices U over an hour which rarely happens. You usually get too tired after about two hours practice under the hot sun before ever being ask to leave.

Can practice putting also at Executive GC (Mandai), Laguna behind driving range and NSRCC (Tampines). I think NSRCC restricts access to members on weekends.

Turf City also has a practice putting & chipping area.

Tanglin IS a nine-hole practice pitching, chipping and putting 'area' (par 3s). Fairly cheap on weekdays.

This is a great suggestion. Good place to firm up your irons and short game Smile

For chipping, it may be better to practise at the range on the ground floor.

I agree, but if you have no choice... it's an alternative you'll have to consider. Also, it's a good way to build confidence with the swing albeit on a carpet.
